is anyone else sick of hearing the misinformation about this thing?

the new pinhead is advertised everywhere as a woman, this is triggering troglodytes moaning about feminism and always having to ruin everything with a woman.

its a TIM and frankly it looks like one even with the make up.

I am so sick of the blatant misinformation Hellraiser throws us under the bus twice, once by not giving a female actress the role and again by making misogynists think women have "ruined" the film.

I'm obsessed with Hellraiser so I resigned myself to the TIM lead, deciding I would watch regardless as I've been waiting on this movie for years. Then the trailer came out and I lost the small amount of hope I had that I would enjoy it. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised, but the writing/direction looks generic af.

Of course, the fact the woman's role went to a man is just icing on the shit cake, and hearing wokebro willies refer to him as a "female" is infuriating, so I'm just staying out of horror spaces for now. Hopefully the HBO show is much better, if it hasn't been axed yet.

I reccomend X and Pearl and Midsommar if you want quality female driven horror. written and directed by dudes mostly but Mia Goth had a huge hand in Pearl and I assume she will help write and/or direct Maxxxine as well

I watched X yesterday and outside of it being a tad too long, it was far too derivative of Texas Chainsaw. There's homage and then there's X.

Edit: The only Ti West movie I've genuinely enjoyed was The House of the Devil.

HARD disagree. for me Texas Chainsaw was always just slasher. X was so much more.

I forget which shitty celeb said this but it's one of my favorite joke-quotes, "You're entitled to your wrong opinion" 😂😂😂

genuinely curious how you'll feel about Pearl if you end up seeing it tho ☺️

I'm not a big Ti West fan, but I'm always about women lead horror. I'll have to check them out!

I hadnt been following Ti up til this point. I actually saw the Pearl trailer FIRST and was like woah what's this about, watched X, and then just saw Pearl in theaters. Pearl was better than X imo but I do think you should see X first so you can fully enjoy the feel of an ORIGIN story. it will have a totally different feel if you just see Pearl first imo
