These are the Cenobite Designs from the ‘Hellraiser’ Reboot

Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer's Hellraiser may be dead, but their concept art will live forever on the internet.

Our beloved affiliate Shock Till You Drop got a fantastic exclusive yesterday in the form of concept art for the Hellraiser reboot we were supposed to be getting but is, apparently, pretty dead in the water. You may recall that both Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer, who were directing and writing the proposed reboot (respectively), gave us updates on their Hellraiser project in interviews a few months ago (linked above). It wasn't a remake, shockingly, but rather a new story in the Hellraiser universe that would apparently have included some new designs for Clive Barker's most famous creations: The Cenobites.

Most famous of all the Cenobites is, of course, Pinhead, who apparently wouldn't undergo so much of a redesign as get a new article of clothing in the form of a high-collared top. Like, ridiculously high-collared. It looks uncomfortably restrictive, which of course fits the character's origins as perpetually-tortured demigods of the damned. Check out Shock Till You Drop for the rest of the Cenobite designs they were able to get their hands on!
