One of the many big draws for fans attending CT HorrorFest 2019 was the programming schedule. Horror mavens flocked to the panel room at 5:15 p.m. on September 14th to see the Cenobites discuss Hellraiser. CT HorrorFest staffer Mike Simonetta prepared to host the panel as Doug Bradley (Pinhead), Nicholas Vince (Chatterer), Simon Bamford (Butterball), and Barbie Wilde (Female Cenobite) stepped on stage to a raucous ovation.
The quartet had great chemistry as they told story after story about the Hellraiser franchise most of which were focused on the first two films which premiered in 1987 and 1988. The cast talks about getting into the leather-clad outfits, the potential of returning to the Hellraiser series, a potential Nightbreed series, and their first reaction to seeing their costumes for the film.
