Paul T. Taylor Interview

Interview Conducted by Stuart D. Monroe

If you are a Hellraiser superfan right down to the canon of the comics and you’re offered the role of Pinhead, you’re on that like flies on shit. Right? Sure you are. Paul T. Taylor is no fool, and you’d better believe he’s relishing the role. Still, he knows those are mighty big shoes to fill. He also knows that the story of the Hellraiser franchise is ever-changing.

A veteran actor who’s been doing it since 1998, Paul had a memorable scene as the Assistant DA in the 2005 monster hit, Sin City. His work on the 2018 indie gem Sick for Toys is the stuff of nightmares. The man who would become Pinhead has seemingly found his niche in the darker roles. The chilling new version of Pinhead is in stark contrast to the genial man with the easy laugh that I had the privilege of interviewing at the Frightmare Collectibles Christmas Market.

We discussed what it means to be Pinhead, the coolness of his new “cult status”, the favorable reviews and following for Hellraiser: Judgment, and that aforementioned creepy-uncle-from-Hell in mask-to-mask interview that shouldn’t be missed. Enjoy!

About The Author
Stuart D. Monroe
Staff Writer
Stuart D. Monroe is a man of many faces – father, husband, movie reviewer, published author of short horror, unsuccessful screenwriter (for now), rabid Clemson Tiger, Southern gentleman, and one hell of a model American who goes by the handle "Big Daddy Stu" or "Sir". He's also highly disturbed and wears that fact like a badge of honor. He is a lover of all things horror with a particular taste for the fare of the Italians and the British. He sometimes gets aroused watching the hardcore stuff, but doesn't bother worrying about whether he was a serial killer in a past life as worrying is for the weak. He was raised in the video stores of the '80s and '90s. The movie theater is his cathedral. He worships H.P. Lovecraft, Stephen King, and Clive Barker. When he writes, he listens obsessively to either classical music or the works of Goblin to stimulate the neural pathways. His favorite movie is Dawn of the Dead. His favorite book is IT. His favorite TV show is LOST.
