The the new Hillrice Coming to Hulu next month, fans of the horror series Clive Barker are eagerly waiting to see what Director David Bruckner To distinguish his film from the many serial entries that came before. One big change makes this eleventh Hillrice Film Highlights: Casting Jimmy Clayton as a demonic opponent Pinhead.

Before the movie was released, io9 got a chance to speak with Bruckner (night house) and Clayton (feeling 8) Via video chat about what Hillrice Believers – and newcomers with franchises – can expect this.


Cheryl Eddy, io9: The Hillrice The franchise has been around for 35 years. How do you handle balancing the appeal of old fans and people who might watch a Hillrice Film for the first time?

David Bruckner: being Hillrice Admire myself, it’s so easy to instantly want to bring everything you love into the original movies to life, and you can’t have it all in one movie. So it’s kind of easy to follow those inspirations – but you also have a commitment to this story. This has always been a new story which sometimes takes you to different places, and you have to follow your inspiration wherever that is. spirit Hillrice I think he embraces invention and advancement in design and is always ready to go [to] Some crazy places. So we wanted to find something that hits the notes that fans want – but also allowed itself to do new things for a new audience and see this as a people’s gateway to old movies. That would be great. This will make me very happy.

io9: Jimmy, Doug Bradley’s portrayal of Pinhead is clearly very likable and iconic. Did you study his performance when shaping your approach to “the priest”?

Jimmy Clayton: David and I had many conversations before I filmed any of the larger scenes about the intent, what the priest feels and thinks, and all of that stuff. He sent me a specific scene to watch—that’s our little secret—but he sent me one scene that was his favorite from the original movie, and I remembered it. It was very useful because it was kind of a tonal idea. This abstract idea was, you know, one of the many colors with which we painted this beautiful painting. And so there I was which – which. But I really just wanted to make it my own. That was the goal. I mean, the point was, even in picking a woman, he was trying to take the burden off the audience’s shoulders even in trying to compare the two shows, because they’d be completely different right away.

io9: How much makeup was functional and how much was CG, and how did you develop your character’s speaking voice?

Speaker 3: The makeup took four and a half to six hours depending on the day, how many other Cenobites would be working, and how many people I worked with. But all-whatever you see, if anyone knows the language of Hollywood, “Last Look” is when the makeup artists jump in before you’re about to actually start shooting a scene. For any actor, it’s a bit of powder on the forehead, and some lip gloss. But to me and the rest of the snobs, it was all blood, like a pin calendar. All these things [were] my work. There are some pieces that have been painted over to get rid of the seams, but that’s all I have for it all.

The audio was fun because I made a sound when I recorded my test, and I was enjoying something. On the callback we did some funny stuff that was playing with volume and drop and all that. And then once I finally got down to [filming] In Serbia, there was a moment as well, when we talked and I said, ‘I probably won’t do what I’ve been doing.’ But the neck piece is too tight and too restrictive, kind of I can not I do nothing more than I do. Once [the costume was] everything , [I was not] able to expand [or take a full breath]So, everything lived here again [in the back of the throat]. We have just found it, and we find in it levels, expression and tone, disappointment or sensuality. We found these things there.

io9: David, after all Hillrice Movies in the world, some are very vulgar, including related works newly Rick and Morty episodeHow do you keep making it? Hillrice scary?

Bruckner: It’s always a challenge to make things scary. And I feel like if you’re doing anything in a horror movie, you’re out on a crazy limb – you have industrial monsters, you usually fight the elements, and when you’re out there on Earth, there’s always a risk that none of them will work. but look, Hillrice It revolves around a lot of different things. It is a fantasy. It’s horror. There are surreal qualities to it. It is a reflection of the characters’ inner dilemma. I liked to say that we kind of chased away the sick laugh, the side of us that feels like we’re getting away with something, and then we also allow ourselves to experience a little bit of awe in horror, being smaller than matter in some ways. So I guess you just trust it and believe in it. There is truth to Hillrice which I admire. And of course, when something becomes iconic on the pop culture front, there will necessarily be another satirical side to it. But I don’t think this challenges the experience in any way that we can’t fall behind.

io9: Have you ever subscribed to the HBO series that was Announced in 2020?

Bruckner: I don’t know anything about her, but I wish them well. I know Clive [Barker’s] I work on it. And I think if they can move on, I’ll be a fan. I would like to see what happens.

io9: Speaking of Clive Barker, he was listed as a producer in your movie. How was he involved?

Bruckner: He was wonderful. He was very involved. We had a lot of conversations when I was in the process of making, long after editing, and it’s a creative product, so it was there to look at the material, to challenge me, to encourage me to consider different ideas. Send me a lot of art. We had a lot of conversations about it. He fully embraced the idea that this was after the core HillriceBut it was also a departure in some ways. Even before he saw the designs, [he] We must find a new way to do some of this, he told me; Times have changed and his spirit must be renewed. And so I hope that’s something we’ve accomplished. But I am grateful to him for his time, and it is a marvel to work with and talk to him. He was very generous with us.

Hillrice Premieres October 7 on Hulu.
