Will we be getting a Female Pinhead in ‘Hellraiser’ Reboot?

by | Jun 21, 2021

Get your lament configuration boxes out, it looks like the Hellraiser reboot has cast it’s first role. This weekend, The Illuminerdi reported that Actor Odessa A’Zion has signed up for the lead role in the new film. However, we are unsure of exactly what that means? 

Clive Barker’s original film also had a lead female star, in Ashley Laurence’s Kirsty Cotten, with the cenobites and Pinhead being supporting cast. So whilst the rumors’ are that Odessa will be playing a gender swapped version of Doug Bradley’s character, it may also point towards a new human lead character.

Hellraiser was developed and directed from Barker’s own novel called The Hellbound Heart, and in this story the cenobites were led by a gender neutral character that has never been seen in any of the films.

“Frank had difficulty guessing the speaker’s gender with any certainty. Its clothes, some of which were sewn to and through its skin, hid its private parts, and there was nothing in the dregs of its voice, or in its willfully disfigured features that offered the least clue. When it spoke, the hooks that transfixed the flaps of its eyes and were wed, by an intricate system of chains passed through flesh and bone alike, to similar hooks through the lower lip, were teased by the motion, exposing the glistening meat beneath.”

So whilst fans are super excited with the prospect of a female Pinhead, as of now, it is still very much pie in the sky.
