25 Pinhead Quotes That’ll Bring You to a World of Pain

This list of the best Pinhead quotes is perfect for every Hellraiser fan who wants to know more about the leader of the Cenobites.

Pinhead is undoubtedly one of the strongest and deadliest among the Cenobites. He’s probably even more hostile and violent than Michael Myers and Jason Voorhees of the Halloween and Friday the 13th franchises. 

His method of attack is using his hooks to mutilate his victims. It’s bloody, inhuman, and downright scary! However, though he’s not a good guy, there has been debate about whether he’s actually evil or not. A snippet of his famous line goes, “Demons to some, angels to others,” and this makes us think about his true nature.

If you’re curious about it like us, or if you want to revisit his best quotes from Hellraiser, this list of quotes will be right up your alley. Read on, and be ready for a fright you’ll never forget!

Continue to the list below.

Did These Pinhead Quotes Have You Running for the Hills?

Hellraiser is undoubtedly one of the best movie franchises to check out if you want a good scare and psychological thriller. However, without Pinhead, the leader of the Cenobites and the Hell Priest, it certainly won’t be the classic it is now.

Pinhead is an enigma, and if you’re a fan of Hellraiser, you’ll know that he wasn’t introduced in the first installment. His identity was only addressed starting in the second movie, where we see flashes of his backstory as a soldier in World War I. War trauma disillusioned him with reality, humanity, and life.

This was the starting point of the pain that Pinhead is known for. As a Cenobite, he’s brutal, cold, and the epitome of evil and chaos. 

Though Pinhead’s presence in Hellraiser is one that’ll no doubt make the hairs on your arms raise, through his backstory, we still get a glimpse of his human side. In addition, we better understand how pain, suffering, and grief can distort a person’s reality and whole being.

With that, we hope you were able to gain a better understanding of Pinhead’s character through the quotes above. Remember, everyone has a reason for being who they are today, even you. So, try to be more open and compassionate about their backstory before judging.
