Yesterday we reported that Australian actress Peta Wilson (below) had signed on to join the cast of 'Hellraiser: Revelations', the ninth 'Hellraiser' installment in yet another long-running horror franchise clinging dearly to life. Victor Garcia will be helming the project, but we've just got wind of some great new character details including some Cenobite info too. Awesome! Sadly Doug Bradley will not return to play the seminal role of Pinhead.
"PINHEAD is back and in his chamber of soulless delights, he thought he had two willing participants in STEVEN and NICO. But Nico wants out and decides that a member of Steven's family will serve as proper barter. Terror ensues."
DR. ROSS CRAVEN Early 40s, handsome, a family man. His son disappeared two years ago and it has been a hard road back to family stability. He is a good man that has fought hard to keep his family together.
EMMA 18, daughter of Ross and Sarah. She is lovely and inquisitive and on the verge of her own womanhood.
STEVEN 20, son of Ross and Sarah. He is a seeker, a true misanthrope. After he graduated high school, he went on a backpacking trip with his friend Nico through Mexico, where he was presented with a choice to "experience a reality beyond current existence" and the puzzle box is presented and Pinhead becomes his master.
NICO 20, Steven's best friend and travelling partner. Once Nico realizes that the commitment to Pinhead is FOREVER, he attempts a daring switch plan to release himself from the puzzlebox.
ENGINEER Male with dark olive skin, cloudy eyes. He is creepy looking, a man that has lived on the streets for years. The Engineer is a man of mysterious origins, and it is this man that draws the curious souls into Pinhead's reality.
MALE CENOBITE Male 20-30s, British accent, Caucasian, very pale, tall and thin, the actor should be comfortable in full body makeup along with special effects contact lenses, face and head special effect makeup. Stunt background / experience a plus.
PSEUDO-PIN HEAD Tall and very thin, deathly pale, in his early 20s. Should be comfortable in full body makeup (head covering, etc.), and tight fitted black leather clothing. This pseudo pinhead is such a devoted servant of Pinhead, he mimics his appearance as closely as possible, and revels in the pain that leads to his pleasure. Stunt background / experience a plus.
FEMALE CENOBITE Tall and thin, this actor should have training in contemporary dance / ballet / mime / as well as be able to work within an environment of sensory deprivation (vision will be impaired within this character's mask). The actor cannot be claustrophobic in any way, as this character wears full body makeup, wears a mask that covers her entire head and face throughout the film. This character can only communicate though body language and movement. She is a haunting presence in the film and conveys all emotion through her body movement. This female cenobite is also a devoted slave to Pinhead.
The shoot commences in Louisiana sometime next month.
