While we’re yet to see a trailer for Hellraiser: Judgment, buzz on the film has been good to mixed, with most fans (understandably) upset that original Pinhead actor Doug Bradley won’t be returning. However, some are excited about the new approach of the film and director Gary J. Tunnicliffe’s enthusiasm about the project.
Though there’s no trailer, we apparently do have a release date for Hellraiser: Judgment, according to an Amazon listing that states the film will be released on February 13th, 2018.
Fans with doubts might be interested to know that Gary J. Tunnicliffe said that the film was so intense that an actress passed out:
“We did two sequences where… one, the actress almost passed out… a scene that you especially, Adam… you are going to freak the f*ck out,” the director revealed to the podcast’s host. “I’ll tell you off air about it, and when I explain it to you, you’re going to be like, ‘Jesus Christ.’ Involving a small dog. No, the dog doesn’t get hurt. But it goes through some… trauma. And then we had three grips leave the set during a sequence when they said, ‘This is utterly screwed up.’”
“I had the most fun on that I’ve ever had, and I’ve never worked so hard on a Hellraiser film, but we had a great time.”
Clive Barker was initially going to return and remake the classic film, but his pitch was rejected by Dimension back in 2014, ultimately leading to the production of Judgment instead.
In 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?
