Pinhead from Hellraiser!
Hellraiser was the 1987 Horror movie that introduced audiences to Pinhead.
Clive Barker wrote and Directed the movie that would later go on to be a cult classic.
Hellraiser was Clive Barker’s directorial debut and his screenplay adapted from his own story, The Hellbound Heart.
Pinhead from Hellraiser is a Cenobite,an extra-dimensional being who takes the form of a mutilated body. Clive Barker reportedly did not like the name Pinhead and insisted on the name Hell Priest, but the nickname Pinhead has appropriately stuck.
There have been 9 movies in the Hellraiser film franchise, with one more in production. Actor Doug Bradley has portrayed Pinhead in 8 of the previous movies and has even been credited as a Make-Up assistant, due to his expertise in applying and removing his own prosthetic appliances.
