So ironically, two days ago I was watching Clive Barker’s Hellraiser. I watched it because the iconic film turns 30 this year and being nostalgic is always fun. Then yesterday, figuratively shooting across my desk, came this news about The Priest, Pinhead himself.
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of this horror icon, the folks at Composite Effects are working with Clive Barker to produce a limited run of 30 signed and numbered masks based off of Clive Barker’s original “Hell Priest” design sketches! Each mask is hand-made with meticulous care and attention to detail. Once the 30th piece is finished, the mold will be smashed in a ritual of rage and release. Along with a signed certificate of authenticity, a piece of the mold will be included with each finished mask, a sharp reminder of both pain and pleasure.
Pricing and availability will be announced at Transworld. Transworld attendees will have the first opportunity to purchase on Thursday (March 23). The mask will be offered to the public on Friday (March 24) until all 30 have been sold.
After all 30 have been cast, we will announce and host a live Facebook event allowing everyone to watch the mold getting destroyed!
These masks look perfect. I love this promotion and I love how alive Barker has kept his characters. Pinhead is just as alive and terrifying today as he was 30 years ago.
