Hellraiser: Judgment is a new film from Gary Tunnicliffe. They are currently working on the film and, as it is a new version of Hellraiser, they have got a new guy to play Pinhead.

That new guy is Paul T. Taylor who has starred in Sin City and Super. Tunnicliffe describes him as “a classically trained stage and film actor who brings a great physical presence and more than a hint of Peter Cushing and Ralph Fiennes. I can’t wait to get him bound in leather, gridded up and in front of the camera and on screens!”

Here is the synopsis for the new film.

Detectives Sean and David Carter are on the case to find a gruesome serial killer terrorizing the city. Joining forces with Detective Christine Egerton, they dig deeper into a spiraling maze of horror that may not be of this world. Could the Judgment awaiting the killer’s victims also be waiting for Sean?

Doug Bradley, who played the original Pinhead (you can see him in the top picture), explained here why he wasn’t involved.

Tunnicliffe also commented on this:

I was thrilled and excited to call Doug and let him know I was writing and directing HELLRAISER: JUDGMENT , I considered Pinhead HIS role and I was looking forward to working with him and bringing him back to the fans. Legally, we needed a simple non-disclosure agreement signed (very much common place now with production companies) but he immediately balked. I have no idea why, I’ve signed way more binding NDA’s than that myself, most actors and crew on productions of any size usually have to now.Doug wrote back to me…

‘I’m going to make myself liable for a million bucks I don’t have just to read a damn script?… I don’t think so’

I was stunned, after all it was my ‘damn’ script and it let me know how he felt straight away. I wrote to him saying I was sorry he felt that way and the next day the search for a new Pinhead began.

How do you feel about a new Pinhead?

A Nightmare On Elm Street‘s Heather Langenkamp also stars in the film.

Bloody Disgusting had the news along with some more of the cast.

Damon Carney (The Veil, The Hitcher) plays ‘Detective Sean Carter’, Randy Wayne (To Save a Life) is ‘Detective David Carter’ andAlexandra Harris (In the Shadows, The Veil) will portray ‘Detective Christine Egerton’.

As for the new Cenobites, get ready for this awesome bombshell: John Gulagher – director ofFeast and Piranha 3DD – will star as ‘The Assessor’! This role is tied to ‘The Auditor,’ a character that learns of your sins, your transgressions, your evils, and takes careful note of them before passing them on to the Assessor for judgment.

Diane Goldner (Halloween 2, Feast 2, The Collector) nabbed the wicked role of ‘The Cleaner,’ a terrifying, aging, naked women clean bodies for punishment by licking them head to toe.

We’ve also learned that special effects specialist Mike Jay Regan will once again portray ‘Chatterer’!

Andi Powers is going to play one of the three ‘Jury’, who were described as naked, perfectly beautiful girls with have faces that have been shredded away; blood, bone, muscle, sinew and teeth exposed. They pass the horrific verdicts onto all offending mortals.

Jeff Fenter (The Box, Zero Charisma) is ‘Karl Watkins’ with Helena Grace Donald (Portrait of An Art Thief) as ‘Jophiel’, and Grace Montie (Southern Tale) taking on the role of Crystal Lanning’, a beautiful socialite who is never far from her beloved little dog, “Baby.”

As for Heather Langenkamp, she is the chain-smoking ‘Landlady’ who snorts obscenities to the police.

Here are some more details about the various characters from a casting call:

ALISON CARTER – Female, 28-35. Sean’s perfect, adoring wife. But something is missing. Her husband has been distant, even cold. He has forgotten her on her birthday. Alison makes it her mission to help her husband, but she hides a very dark secret. (TOPLESS/PARTIAL NUDITY. SIMULATED SEX.)

THE AUDITOR – Male, 40-60. All business, very matter-of-fact. Clearly not of this earth. He learns of your sins, your transgressions, your evils, and takes careful note of them before passing them on to the Assessor for judgment. Think of him more as an accountant from Hell. A great character actor with a great face is needed to bring this role from the other world to ours. SUPPORTING

THE JURY – Females, early 20s. These three, naked, perfectly beautiful girls have faces that have been shredded away; blood, bone, muscle, sinew and teeth exposed. They pass the horrific verdicts onto all offending mortals. They will also wear tight-fitting body suits and portray our “stitchers.” Dance experience might be fun here, but not required. (NUDITY REQUIRED) 4 SCENES

HODGES – Male, 50s. He is the rotund Medical Examiner; a Hawaiian shirt-wearing, basement-working bureaucrat with information on Crystal Lanning’s murder—but the information doesn’t come without a slimy proposal for Detective Egerton. 1 SCENE. 10 LINES, 3 SPEECHES

CRYSTAL LANNING – Female, 21. She is a beautiful socialite. She wears a black, designer micro cocktail dress, carries a Chanel purse, and barks into her bejeweled cell phone, wobbling out of her Uber Black on ridiculous high heels. She is also never far from her beloved little dog, “Baby.” She will suffer a grisly, horrific end, and it is her murder that sets our story in action. Must be comfortable with her body. Will be seen in a thong. 2 SCENES.

CLEANERS – Females, 65+. These terrifying, aging, naked women clean bodies for punishment by licking them head to toe. They tear away their victim’s clothes, not unlike a pack of wolves, forcing their tongues upon Watkins. (NUDITY REQUIRED)

VAGRANT – Male, 55+. Rough, disheveled, homeless man. Perhaps he is hairy, perhaps he is missing teeth. You can almost smell him through the screen. So it is odd and out of character for him to eloquently quote Charles Dickens in a whisper to Sean. 1 SCENE

LANDLADY – Female, 50+. A cigarette dangles from her mouth as she snorts obscenities to the police. 1 SCENE.

SOCCER BOY – Male, 8-11. A small soccer boy who’s ball clearly bounced in the wrong yard. 1 SCENE, 1 LINE.

MORMON 1 – Male, 20-28. MUST SPEAK GERMAN. He shows up at the door on his bicycle, in typical black pants and white short-sleeved shirt. 1 SCENE, 1 LINE

BUTCHER – Male, 30-45. A huge, behemoth of a man. A huge bouncer/doorman type. With his giant scythe, in large, hack-like movements, he slices meat from Watkins’ back. 1 SCENE. NO LINES.

SURGEON – Male, 30-60. The skinniest guy we can find. A full or partial lower limb amputee. Either a dancer or martial arts expert, or perhaps even a full or partial lower-limb amputee, giving him a real ROAD WARRIOR feel. He is lowered on a harness, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE style. With surgical precision, he vivisects Watkins on the gruesome operating table. 1 SCENE. NO LINES.
