In this movie we have veteran makeup artist Gary J. Tunnicliffe (Hansel & Gretel) who has been a longtime fan of the Hellraiser series and worked on the third, fourth, sixth, seventh, eighth, and ninth Hellraiser movies with newcomer Paul T. Taylor as pinhead. In Hellraiser: Judgement we follow homicide cops on a devilish beat. “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 judgement” reads the official synopsis.
Longtime horror fans may recognize the familiar face of Heather Lagenkamp best known for her role as Nancy Thompson in A Nightmare on Elm Street and it’s sequel Wes Cravens New Nightmare. “I’ve had the most fun I’ve ever had and I’ve never worked so hard on a Hellraiser film!” exclaims Tunnicliffe. “We did two scenes where one of the actresses almost passed out and in another, three grips had to leave the set due to it being an utterly screwed up sequence.”
This film is going the way of grimy Saw vibes with Hellraisers otherworldly torture tradition and they have seemed to pull no punches in the gore department. Pass Judgement yourselves Valentines, it will premier on DVD, Blu Ray and VOD February 13th 2018
