And a frozen grief. I felt now that Pinhead existed in an emotional limbo where neither pain nor pleasure could touch him. A pretty good definition of Hell for me. The Pinhead makeup took six hours to apply. During rehearsals, Barker told Bradley, who at the time was more used to working in theatre, to subdue his movements and gestures, in order to give Pinhead an aura of complete control.
Paul T. Taylor portrays Pinhead in Hellraiser: Judgment , an experience he describes as a dream-come-true.
According to Taylor, "[Pinhead] was always my favorite horror icon because he was the most twisted and intelligent in my mind. Gary Tunnicliffe gave Taylor room to create his own interpretation of Pinhead, as Taylor brought an intentional vulnerability to the role. In addition to prior knowledge, Taylor used Hellraiser comic books as preparation for the film.
Signs and Stages of a Demonic Possession
In the first Hellraiser script drafts, Pinhead was credited as "Priest". The name "Pinhead" was coined by the makeup crew that applied the prosthetics on Bradley to distinguish the Cenobites. Clive Barker had no say in choosing "Pinhead" as a name and did not like it, as he thought it was undignified. The name is also used as a derogative term towards the Cenobite by Jophiel, God's advisor and Pinhead's superior, before he kills her in Hellraiser: Judgment, during the film's finale. The name also appears in the film Hellworld, referring to the fictional character portrayed in the Hellraiser game.
Pinhead's role has varied with each Hellraiser installment. In the script for the original film, Barker describes Pinhead and the other cenobites as "demons" in his notes; the character himself, however, upon capturing Kirsty Cotton, identifies himself as neither explicitly angelic nor demonic, stating that he and his fellow entourage are "Explorers in the further regions of experience.
Demons to some. Angels to others. The third film radically altered the original concept, making Pinhead into a purely evil demon of chaos, explained by Pinhead losing the human, 'orderly', part of himself during the previous film. In the fourth film he is presented as a megalomaniac bent on world domination,  and by the fifth he acts as a judge, punishing those who open the box for their sins by making them face their personal demons. In this film, he goes by the title of "Engineer",  a name derived from the lead cenobite in Clive Barker's original novella. Of the four we know about, he is the leader, but the Cenobites have been around for centuries.
To me, Pinhead is the chief Cenobite of the 20th Century.. The character's past, which is alluded to in Hellbound , is expanded upon in Hell on Earth. Spencer participated in the Battle of Passchendaele , after which he lost faith in humanity and God. He wandered Earth indulging in a hedonistic lifestyle to bury his trauma, turning to the baser methods of gratification and pleasure until finding the Lament Configuration in British India in According to Clive Barker, as the writing of the Hellraiser script took place during the height of the A Nightmare on Elm Street , Friday the 13th and Halloween film series, his intended portrayal of Pinhead as an articulate and intelligent character was initially not well received by the producers: some suggested that Pinhead should act more like Freddy Krueger and crack jokes, while others suggested that he be a silent character like Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers.
Barker insisted that Pinhead's personality be more evocative of Christopher Lee 's portrayal of Count Dracula : "Part of the chill of Dracula surely lies in the fact that he is very clearly and articulately aware of what he is doing — you feel that this is a penetrating intelligence — and I don't find dumb things terribly scary — I find intelligence scary, particularly twisted intelligence; it's one of the reasons why Hannibal Lecter is scary, isn't it?
It's because you always feel that he's going to be three jumps ahead of you. Though described by Pinhead's human half in Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth as being "very persuasive and very inventive",  Pinhead prefers using coercive methods in order to obtain his goals, a fact which brings him into conflict with his ally, the demon Princess Angelique. Pinhead can be reasoned and bargained with. In both Hellraiser and Hellraiser: Hellseeker , Kirsty Cotton bargains with Pinhead to offer him more "souls" in exchange for her own in particular, her human adversaries , thus resulting in her life being spared.
In his demonic incarnations, Pinhead is irreverent toward Christianity : in the third film, club owner J. Monroe exclaims " Jesus Christ ," to which Pinhead mockingly replies, "Not quite. Taylor, who portrays Pinhead in Hellraiser: Judgment , described the character as "twisted and intelligent". Finding Pinhead's mannerisms and demeanor to be unique among horror icons, Taylor tried to capture that in his performance: "It's about the stillness.
He's already so terrifying that when he makes a move, it means something.
He's very economical and when he speaks, he's so eloquent. I feel like I was in character the whole time, and I don't mean that in some sort of artistic, lofty way.
I mean I maintained the demeanor the whole time because I had to. Described by Doug Bradley as stronger than Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers,  Pinhead is an extremely powerful being, and as such, has several supernatural abilities.http://grupoega.com/components/2019-08-25/7127-rastreador-de.html

His preferred method of attack is by summoning hooks and chains to mutilate victims, often pulling said victims in several directions to tear them apart. The chains may even change shape after having attached to a victim. He is capable of creating other cenobites from both living  and dead victims. In order to act in the physical world, Pinhead needs to have been purposely summoned through the Lament Configuration, though this in itself is not usually enough for Pinhead to target the puzzle-solver: in Hellbound: Hellraiser II , Pinhead stops the Cenobites from torturing an emotionally traumatised girl who was manipulated as a proxy into opening the Configuration, remarking " During this incident his powers were apparently expanded beyond their normal limits allowing him to physically warp reality to his will.
Pinhead at first has no memory of his human past, though is reminded of it in Hellbound: Hellraiser II , which results in what screenwriter Peter Atkins described as him being "spiritually weakened" and subsequently killed by the Chanard Cenobite. Pinhead is shown in all his appearances to be accompanied by other denizens of Hell. Although originally portrayed as a subordinate of "The Engineer" in The Hellbound Heart ,  his film incarnations show him as the leader of secondary cenobite characters. The most consistent members of his entourage are a trio of Cenobites named Butterball , The Female , and Chatterer.
The Dark Backward: Demons in the Real World
Though he usually dominates other demons present in the films, in Hellraiser: Bloodline , he encounters Angelique, whom he grudgingly treats as an equal:. This is something entirely new for Pinhead; he's never had a demonic cohort, so to speak. He's had his other Cenobites in the previous films, but the pecking order was always pretty clear.
Angelique is at least his equal, and certainly in Angelique's own mind possibly his superior. Pinhead doesn't quite see things that way, so their relationship is a little sparky.

Though initially reverent toward her, Pinhead is disillusioned when his methods in achieving his goals through coercion come at odds with Angelique's more seductive techniques. Doug Bradley has stated that he has not been approached to reprise the role of Pinhead in the remake, stating that "seeing someone else become Pinhead feels like a kick in the teeth". Gary Tunnicliffe, who was responsible for the Pinhead makeup in the last four films, improvised a new design for Pinhead called Project Angel: Recreating an Icon , the photos of which he published in Fangoria.
My design idea was to create something that still felt like Pinhead but that stepped away from the 'order' of the original design, something that was more painful, more chaotic. Among Tunnicliffe's redesigns included the usage of square shafted nails for the iconic pins, which were meant to look rusted and handmade. He also designed the new Pinhead as wearing a white priest's robe rather than the original black leather, as a homage to the origins of the word "cenobite" which implies a religious connection.
I don't think that's right. I think the whole point about Pinhead is that he isn't bloody - that his victims are bloody but he isn't. The other thing is that there are these lacerations that are diagonal and very random.

The original had the feel of geometry paper in school where it was broken up into segments and lines, which to me had a severity to it. Having the pins of the intersections of the crossroads made it have a surgical severity to it almost. I think this new version has sacrificed that feeling. Pascal Laugier , who was set to write the remake wrote an online statement, stressing that Tunnicliffe's redesign was unauthorised, and that he himself had a very different design in mind.
