There's been a lot of rumblings in the Hellraiser arena of late, with rumors of another reboot, grumblings over the delayed release of Hellraiser: Judgment and even Tom Savini resurrecting the original Doug Bradley's Pinhead for a new fan Meet and Greet.

Now Simon Bamford, who played the blubbery Cenobite, Butterball, in the Hellraiser series has shared some disgustingly cool early make-up test shots with horror fans via his Facebook page. The British actor portrayed the rotund interdimensional demon in 1987's Hellraiser and its sequel of 1988, Hellbound: Hellraiser II. These vintage Polaroids were taken back in 1986 during preproduction of the Clive Barker-directed classic and show some of the evolutionary process of the costume and character.

Have a peek in the gallery below and tell us if Bamford's Butterball will always have a place in your heart.
