“I am a jealous god,” we see written in blood in the first Hellraiser: Judgement trailer, though the writer might be envious of the simple charm of the original classic horror film. Hellraiser (1987) was Clive Barker’s directorial debut. It was based on his novella The Hellbound Heart. and introduced moviegoers to the Cenobites. The tenth film in the Hellraiser franchise turns Pinhead into serial killer. But it probably won’t be enough to kill the series. Hellraiser: Judgment will be meted out on Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD on February 13 from Lionsgate.
Hellraiser: Judgement follows homicide cops on a devilish beat. “Three detectives trying to stop a diabolical serial killer are sucked into a maze of otherworldly horror, where hellish denizens including the Auditor, the Assessor, and the Jury await to pass judgment,” reads the official synopsis.
Writtten and directed by Gary J. Tunnicliffe (Hansel & Gretel), Hellraiser Judgement features an appearance by horror icon Heather Langenkamp (A Nightmare on Elm Street, Wes Craven’s New Nightmare), and stars Damon Carney, Randy Wayne, Alexandra Harris, John Gulager, Mike Jay Regan, and Diane Goldner.
The trailer promises ritual killings, dark mazes and gallons of blood. You can watch it here:
