Well he kind of returns....Doug Bradley won't be reprising his role as the head cenobite, instead Paul T. Taylor will be taking his place in the tenth entry of the long running franchise, Hellraiser: Judgement.
This alone may turn many die hard fans away and yes, it does bother me a little bit, but after seeing this trailer I'm a little more at ease. It actually looks pretty damn great! There's plenty of violence, gore and all-new cenobites to be seen in the trailer below, which was posted exclusively by Bloody Disgusting.
Hellraiser: Judgment will be released on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital, and VOD platforms beginning February 13th via Lionsgate. The film was directed by Gary J. Tunnicliffe and stars Heather Langenkamp (A Nightmare on Elm Street).
