The pit of eternal suffering that is the Hellraiser franchise still has fresh torments to offer those for whom all other earthly pleasures have lost their appeal, as a trailer for the 10th installment in the series, Hellraiser: Judgement, premiered this afternoon on horror site Bloody-Disgusting.


Shoehorning the ongoing adventures of Pinhead and pals into films “inspired” by more successful horror movies is a signature of the late Hellraiser franchise, and this time around they seem to be going for a redo on the S7ven-esque serial-killer narrative of 2000's Hellraiser: Inferno. (Fun fact: That objectively pretty terrible film marked the directorial debut of future Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson.) And we quote: “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.”

Veteran makeup artist Gary J. Tunnicliffe, a longtime fan of the series who worked on the third, fourth, sixth, seventh, eighth, and ninth Hellraiser movies, directs, with a newcomer, Paul T. Taylor, as Pinhead. Hellraiser: Judgement will premiere on DVD, Blu-ray, and VOD on February 13.
