Sports & Hip-Hop with DJ Mad Max
Doug Bradley, Pinhead

October 21, 2019

I would like to thank Horror Icon Doug Bradley, who played Pinhead in the Hellraiser films, for calling into my show, Sports & Hip-Hop with DJ Mad Max on WSJU Radio at St. John's University. Doug talked about what it was like growing up in Liverpool, England, meeting Clive Barker in High School, and working with Clive on the masterpiece film Hellraiser. Doug discussed his most memorable moments playing Pinhead, including his favorite lines from the films. He described what pleasure and pain in the films meant, and that everyone has their own interpretations of what those words mean to them. He talked about the makeup process for the film. It took an average of 4-5 hours to become Pinhead. Doug also talked about his book, Behind the Mask of the Horror Actor Doug Bradley and his Spinechillers series. Go checkout his website.
