In a move surely to leave horror fans bouncing with excitement, especially Doug Bradley and Hellraiser fans, it looks like a new Pinhead has been cast for Hellraiser: Revelations. Now in all fairness to the lucky sap, err actor, Doug Bradley, the one and only Pinhead did turn the role down. Honestly that should be a clue for anyone involved that maybe this project should just be left to die a natural death. But it is Hollywood after all and poor bastard Stephen Smith Collins has landed the "no way to win" role of the decade. At least Jackie Earle Haley had a bit of a following before the Nightmare snooze fest. Plus this was a reboot, while the Hellraiser is a continuation of a series. I won't lie and say the last few Hellraiser's were classics, but at least we had Doug Bradley waiting to tear our souls apart, even if it was just for a few minutes on screen.
At least this is being helmed by a solid director in Victor Garcia ( warned you). I am sure everyone rembers Garcia from that Horror classic in the making Return to House on Haunted Hill. A movie that that had us all repeating "Why the hell isn't Cerina Vincent taking her top off?"
Now before you all go rushing to IMDB to see what this guy has been in let me just tell you. Tell you that I don't have a f'ing clue and really don't feel like checking. Does it really matter?
