In Clive Barker's 1987 British horror movie, Hellraiser, the world was introduced to another iconic movie monster, 'Pinhead', who was played by Doug Bradley.

Cult horror favourite 'Pinhead' is the leader of the sadistic demon 'Cenobites', who can be summoned from an other dimensional Hell to claim the soul of anyone who solves the mysterious Puzzle Box on Earth.

To date there have been nine installments in the Hellraiser franchise and this special effects figure of Pinhead is from 1992's Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth and was created by Image Animation International. This movie prop was photographed on display at the Planet Hollywood Cafe in Las Vegas.

On a visit to the London Film Museum on January 25, 2011 I also discovered another Pinhead figure on display, plus a Puzzle Box prop from the first Hellraiser movie.
