We hope you’re sitting comfortably, for the folks over at Bloody Disgusting have summoned the spine-chilling first trailer for Hellraiser: Judgment, Gary J. Tunnicliffe’s long-in-development passion project that heralds Paul T. Taylor’s first spin as the illustrious Pinhead.
Well, we say illustrious when really we mean nasty, demented and abominable – you know, all of the horror-tinged superlatives one would associate with Clive Barker’s otherworldly creation. And make no mistake, after a seven-year hiatus, Pinhead is prepped and ready to make up for lost time, as is evidenced by this morning’s hellish first trailer.
It’s arrived just in time, too, given Lionsgate has slated Hellraiser: Judgment for a home video release on February 13th. It’ll likely come packing a hefty amount of bonus material as well – an extended cut and gag reel are mentioned in Bloody Disgusting’s scoop – but for now, let’s marvel at the stark cover art.
And as the tenth Hellraiser movie, Judgment will make an excellent (if nightmarish!) addition to any Blu-ray collection, while we understand writer-director Gary J. Tunnicliffe has conjured up a multi-faceted story involving three detectives – namely Sean Carter, David Carter, and Christine Egerton – as they begin to uncover a threat of “otherworldy proportions.”
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.
It doesn’t take long before their investigation steers them in the direction of Pinhead, opening up a hellish landscape the likes of which we’ve never seen – unless you’re familiar with the alternate dimension of Paul W. S. Anderson’s Event Horizon.
Evil seeks evil: Gary J. Tunnicliffe’s Hellraiser: Judgment will loom over Blu-ray, DVD, and On Demand February 13th – just in time for Valentine’s Day…
