Brit actor Doug Bradley, whose name has been synonymous with the iconic horror character Pinhead, has been replaced with Chicago born actor Stephan Smith Collins (below). He’ll take over the role of the spiky headed one in Victor Garcia’s ‘Hellraiser: Revelations’ sequel. Doug Bradley, whom had previously been playing the head cenobite since 1987 didn’t sign up for this follow-up due to pay issues.
“‘Hellraiser: Revelations’ tells of two friends who unleash Pinhead, who becomes their master of pain. Apparently, one of the friends has a change of heart. He backs out on his oath hoping to swap himself out with one of his friend’s family members.”
The straight to DVD sequel (the 9th installment in the franchise) was penned by Gary J.Tunnicliffe.
