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 makeup 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.
