Behind the Monsters –Season Finale

Behind the Monsters takes an in-depth exploration of the creation of favorite horror icons including Candyman, Chucky, Michael Myers and Freddy Krueger. No horror icon came out of a filmmaker’s first draft fully formed. There were early drafts, wrong turns, experimentation. Once made flesh (or latex), there’s presentation, impact, audience response and legacy. The final episode explores the iconic character of Pinhead. When Clive Barker wrote ‘The Hellbound Heart’, he never imagined the character he penned as “Lead Cenobite”, would go on to the become the horrific and undeniable symbol of pleasure and pain and thanks in large part to childhood friend Doug Bradley, the icon of the Hellraiser film franchise. With a reboot and an upcoming series in the works, this seductive super masochist from hell who will literally tear your soul apart continues to fascinate and enthrall us.
