New Cenobites will rise in the next chapter in the horror saga Hellraiser: Judgment. Today, we have a look at two of these monstrous beings from Hell. Meet The Butcher and The Surgeon! They’re definitely enough to give you nightmares. Jillyan Blundell is the one hiding under the Surgeon’s mask, while Joel Decker carries the weight of The Butcher.
These latest images arrive courtesy of TwoHoursintheDark. Writer/director Gary Tunnicliffe is in post-production on Judgment. It is being called his personal take on the Hellraiser series, and as such, stands slightly outside of the franchise. Apparently, a complete reboot of the series is also on the way soon, with original creator Clive Barker involved.
This next sequel stars horror icon and Nightmare on Elm Sreet alum Heather Langenkamp, who is famous for playing Freddy Krueger’s most infamous nemesis ever, Nancy. She appears in an ensemble cast that also includes Damon Carney, Randy Wayne, Alexandra Harris, John Gulagher, Mike Jay Regan, Diane Goldner, Andi Powers, Jeff Fenter, Helena Grace Donald, and Grace Montie. Paul T. Taylor is taking over the iconic Pinhead role from another horror icon, Doug Bradley.
Along with these two new images of the Cenobites in action, we also get a look at Gary Tunnicliffe on set. He is pictured with the iconic puzzle box that rests at the heart of this sprawling story. It has been noted that The Butcher, seen below, is only in one scene from the movie. He carries a giant scythe that he likes to swing in big hacking movements. And he uses the tool to extract flesh from one of his victim’s backs. The Surgeon is also only in one scene. He is known to use surgical precision in vivisections on a dirty old operating table.
The story this time out follows Detectives Sean and David Carter, who 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? Take a look at these latest photos. A trailer is surely on the way soon.
