According to Janie Clayton, she gave out a step-by-step. guide to how to become the ultimate Hellraiser:

1)Watch the original HellRaiser: “I was very grateful to David for all of the time that he took,” she says. “He was working in Serbia months before any of us even arrived. David took so much time to schedule with me, late at night on Sundays […] to sort of help me get to a place where I could really become the Priest.”

2)Spend your half day getting into costume: Clayton mentions that it took her 4-6 hours to get into the Pinhead makeup. “I could not have asked for more amazing makeup artists and confidants,” Clayton says. “I always say getting your makeup done is a very intimate experience. I mean, you have someone in your face like this [gestures right in front of face]. And with prosthetics, it’s a whole ’nother level of intimacy.”

3)Walk on set and astonish the crew: Once you’re done with makeup, you gotta flex those pins! “You can always feel it on set,” Bruckner says. “A hush falls over the crowd, the crew pays their respects. Her Majesty is here. And it is her turn to speak.”

4)Raise Hell!: You gotta set the stage on fire. “I’ve been sitting in this for a year, not knowing what’s going to happen,” she says. “And finally people are starting to see it, and I’m starting to get caught [up in it] and really getting emotional. I’ve just been really worried and really scared. I mean, I liked it. Even David said to me after I saw it, ‘I’m so glad you like it.’ We’re all just, you know, on pins and needles.”
