SHOCKtober Day 4

These two favorite characters couldn't be more different...or maybe I mean ALIKE.

(I mean different)

Pinhead (Hellraiser, Hellraiser in Space, Hellraiser in the Computer, Hellraiser in the Old Days, That Hellraiser with Kari Wuhrer, Some Other Hellraisers Probably)

Sayeth the chooser of Pinhead: "Pinhead. Specifically, Doug Bradley as Pinhead, because fuck that new guy. I don't even know his name, but seriously, fuck that guy. Also, if I can be even more specific, Doug Bradley as Pinhead in the original Hellraiser. The sequels are mostly awful."

Scotty Parker (Silent Scream)

If anybody every asks why someone would choose Scotty Parker, I would just silently point to this picture. SILENTLY and SCREAMINGLY, I mean.

The chooser of Pinhead puts it perfectly. Doug isn't a sinister or sadistic-looking guy (quite the opposite). That's exactly why his portrayal of the character has resonance. The Cenobites aren't natural-born killers, they're us.

Pre-puzzle Pinhead should remind us of our favorite uncle, and that's just what DB projected in Hellbound (the best of the series).
