Jamie Clayton Prepares For Pinhead in ‘Hellraiser’ Reboot
Clive Baker is of course the man behind the Hellraiser Franchise, having directed the first film based on his own novella The Hellbound Heart.. The film rights dropped back into his lap in the last couple of years and he’s certainly nor sitting on them. Not only do we have a new Spyglass/David Bruckner film, but we also have a TV series which will fit more canonically into the original series. Clayton will be heading the cast for the film, which will act as a reboot for the franchise, and push it into a different direction.
Clayton posted her video on Instagram showing how her head has been cast for the films prosthetics. This process first captures a negative image of her, using alginate and plaster, this will later be filled with plaster to provide a positive replica of her head, in which special effects artist can create a clay representation of the prosthetics. Another negative image is then cast and finally the positive prosthetics can be pulled from the mold. After this, they will need to be painted and applied onto the actress. Having you fast covered in plaster is not a very comfortable feeling, and can actually be very scary.

The new Hellraiser film has already started shooting, with this footage being captured back in July, but it’s still fun to see the prep work going into a new iconic horror character. No doubt we’ll be getting a full reveal of the new Pinhead soon. If producer David S. Goyer is anything to judge by, he seems super excited about the “Jaw Dropping” new look.
No matter what happens, most Horror Fans are just thrilled to have producer Clive Baker back in the driving seat for his amazing franchise. If anyone can do Hellraiser properly, it’s the man that created it.
I can’t wait to see the new Pinhead look. What do you think she might look like? Let us know in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram! You can also carry on the convo with me personally on Twitter @Lallen_UK
