yeah! Doug Bradley is becoming Pinhead Once again! Doug Bradly was for his portrayal of lead Cenobits „Pinhead“ in the Hellraiser franchise by Clive Barker, the year 1987 started, the horror-Icon. While the actor in 2011 adopted from the franchise, so that the role of new actors in the recent films („Hellraiser: Revelations“ and the upcoming „Hellraiser: Judgment“) was released, is Bradly always still synonymous with the fictitious hell priest. So Bradly, together with the original Cenobiten Barbie Wilde, Nicholas Vince und Simon Bamford, at every horror conventions in the past decade, a fixed value. In search, to offer some really spectacular the fans, has „MAD Monster Party“ in May 2017 takes place in Arizona, come up with something very special and offers a very special experience Pinhead: For the first time can Horror-Freaks to face with the villain come true face their own nightmares. Bradly has to an announcement facebook released:
The cat is out of the bag, so to speak.
We’ve been keeping this quiet for nearly a year now and it feels great to finally let you all in on it!
When fans and show organizers started to ask about the possibility of a Pinhead photo op with Doug a few years back, we dismissed it as an impossibility. Almost nothing relating to Pinhead existed anymore. No makeup. No costume. Not even a life cast. Besides, shaking hands and “posing” for a picture with Pinhead seemed like a silly idea. From Doug’s perspective, if he’s in makeup and costume, he’s in character. “Hi. How are you?’ doesn’t quite trip off The Prince Of Pain’s tongue, does it?
The more time went on, the more the questions persisted and the more we talked about it. An idea evolved. If Pinhead can’t enter the fans’ world, how can we bring you into his? If we were to do it, we would want it to stand apart from the rest. It would need to be different. We began to talk about something a little more involved than the photo ops that most fans were used to. We wanted to present an experience and not just a photograph, as close to stepping on set with Doug as Pinhead as we could make it.
We finally made the decision to go forward with our ideas, fully knowing it would be a stressful, expensive, time-consuming undertaking. It would have to be coordinated and funded solely by us, but even with that Prospect, we would not skimp on details. We hired some of our closest and most talented friends to help us bring it all to life. We can only hope that everyone will be happy with what we’ve been able to accomplish together. We’re still working on some of the final details but this is something we will present to fans for the first time at Mad Monster Party, Arizona in May, 2017.
We hope you can join Doug for this experience.
