Under the Skin: Doug Bradley on Hellraiser II - Hellbound is a short 10 minute (not 27 as the IMDb would have you believe) interview with Doug Bradley who played the infamous Pinhead in Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988) & it's a good one helped by the fact it wasn't shot with a promotional angle.
Obviously at only 10 minutes long time is a problem so he doesn't cover much here but what he has to say is relevant & interesting if your a fan of the film which I most definitely am.
He talks about how has been constantly asked about the famous still featured on the back of the box on various Hellbound: Hellraiser II video releases of himself & another Cenobite in the surgeon's gown, he states quite clearly once & for all the scene was abandoned & never shot & the only reason the still exists is because the unit photographer decided to take a picture of them.
There are also a couple of amusing anecdote's about his time on set about his meeting one of the cleaners & walking past the British snob of a film critic Barry Norman who notoriously doesn't like horror films... Interestingly he also says that by just plain bad luck the money-men transfered the budget for Hellbound: Hellraiser II from L.A. to England on 'Black Monday' & therefore they lost a 3rd of their budget & a few scenes in the script had to be scrapped.
As a free extra on a DVD it represents good value for money obviously & is a entertaining watch in it's own right, at least you feel you have learned something new by the time it finishes.
