‘Hellraiser: Judgement’ Trailer Brings Back Pinhead

Lionsgate / Dimension Films

Hellraiser fans, Pinhead’s back.

The first trailer has arrived for Hellraiser: Judgement, the next instalment in the long-running horror franchise that Clive Barker kicked off back in 1987. And yeah, it’s appropriately f-d up.

Hellraiser meets something like Saw and Baskin in the tenth film in the series, which follows three detectives that are sucked into a maze of horror. Suffice it to say, they’re not in for a great time: the Auditor, the Assessor, and the Jury await.

The film is directed and written by Gary J. Tunnicliffe, a highly renowned horror makeup effects artist with over 90 credits to his name. Unfortunately, Doug Bradley isn’t back as the Cenobite leader. Donning the pins this time around is Paul T. Taylor.

Hellraiser: Judgement will be hitting US Blu-ray, DVD, and On Demand on February 13, so Pinhead-loving couples can have a romantic Valentine’s I suppose.

Synopsis for Hellraiser: Judgement:

The dreaded Pinhead returns in the next terrifying chapter of the classic Hellraiser series. Three detectives trying to stop a diabolical serial killer are sucked into a maze of otherworldly horror, where hellish denizens including the Auditor, the Assessor, and the Jury await to pass judgment.
