Evil seeks evil.
That’s the chilling tagline attached to Hellraiser: Judgment, Gary J. Tunnicliffe’s long-awaited horror revival that thrusts Paul T. Taylor into the role of Pinhead, a cold, calculating demon who hails from another dimension.
As the historic 10th entry in the cult horror series, there’s an air of cinematic legacy lingering over Tunnicliffe’s Judgment, and today, Bloody Disgusting has served up a suitably creepy clip of Pinhead plotting his next move, which ends with a shrill, Inception-esque blast of music.
To offer some context to the footage, Tunnicliffe was on hand to describe the above clip:
The clip goes a little way to explain some of the new mythology and mechanisms, and you finally get to see and hear our new Pinhead in action. We would love to be able to show more images and clips, but finding something that isn’t too blood-drenched, violent, creepy, or contains nudity is proving tricky!

Story-wise, we know Judgment largely centers around a trio of unassuming detectives – namely Sean Carter, David Carter, and Christine Egerton – who are whisked off to a hellish landscape that looks like the nightmarish offspring of Event Horizon and Jigsaw. It’s not for the faint of heart, then, and as the official logline teases, Gary J. Tunnicliffe has cooked up a potent blast of old-school horror:
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.
Featuring an ancient, detached Pinhead, Hellraiser: Judgment will finally see a release next Tuesday, February 13th (pre-order here) – meaning horror fans will have a creepy alternative to Marvel’s Black Panther movie.
