The new Pinhead in the upcoming Hellraiser reboot went heavy on the makeup.

This reimagining of Clive Barker’s 1987 horror classic–which wrapped production last month–does not yet have a debut date on Hulu, but this behind-the-scenes glimpse into the extensive makeup procedure to get Clayton ready for her closeup certainly whets the appetite without ruining the final product.
This new Spyglass Media Group film–directed by David Bruckner from a screenplay by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski (that drew on a story by David S. Goyer)–promises to go back to the original tale, honoring Barker’s The Hellbound Heart.
“From the moment I read The Hellbound Heart, Clive Barker became one of my literary heroes,” Goyer said. “His work is transgressive and completely redefined the horror genre.”
For his part, Barker–executive producer on the new film–said the designs for the movie “pay homage to what the first film created, but then take it to places it’s never been before. This is a Hellraiser on a scale that I simply didn’t expect.”
The original Hellraiser–written and directed by Barker–dealt with a mystical puzzle box which summoned the Cenobites, sadomasochistic beings–led by Pinhead–who don’t know the difference between pleasure and pain. The movie received lukewarm reviews, but still made a killing at the box office–raking in $14.6 million on a $1-million budget.
