Hellraiser writer-director Clive Barker recently confirmed that he plans to work with a new creative team on a re-imagining of the 1987 film, scheduled for 2008 release. In an interview earlier this month, directors Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury (who helmed this year's exceedingly bloody French release Inside) said the new Hellraiser "will have a new Pinhead." That might seem like bad news for Doug Bradley, who played Pinhead, the needle-faced leader of the immortal sadomasochistic clan the Cenobites in Hellraiser and its seven sequels. However, Bradley has other projects on his plate, including the Hour with Death tour, which stops today at noon at Johnson County Community College's GEB 223 (12345 College Boulevard in Overland Park). During this free performance, Bradley lends the stentorian baritone that delivered classic Pinhead lines such as "I am pain" and "your suffering will be legendary, even in hell." He'll also read horror tales from William Shakespeare and Ray Bradbury, among others. For more information, call 913-469-3807.
