My Top Ten Picks for
The Best Killers
10. Dr. Phibes
Anton Phibes, famous organist with doctorates in Music and Theology was thought to have been killed in a car crash while rushing to the side of his ill wife, Victoria. He was in fact horribly disfigured in the accident but survived only to discover his wife had died on the operating table. Phibes, convinced that his beloved wife was a victim of incompetent doctors, spends several years planning a vendetta against those who operated on his wife.
Inspector Trout suspects Phibes but finds little support from Scotland Yard as Phibes is believed dead. Trout is also hindered by the incompetence of his police force. Eventually Dr. Vesalius, head of the team of doctors that operated on Phibes's wife, begins to believe inspector Trout is right and aids him in the hunt for Phibes.
Using various highly imaginative methods, Dr. Phibes kills seven doctors and a nurse with the help of his beautiful and silent female assistant Vulnavia (played by actress Virginia North). He has reserved the final punishment for Dr. Vesalius. He kidnaps the doctor's son and places him on a table on which a container full of acid is waiting to destroy the boy's face. A small key implanted near the boy's heart will free him, but Vesalius must perform the surgery within six minutes to get the key before the acid falls. The operation succeeds and the acid instead strikes Vulnavia.
Convinced he has accomplished his vendetta, Phibes retreats to a stone sarcophagus beside the embalmed body of his wife. As he drains out his own blood and replaces it with embalming fluid the coffin's inlaid stone lid slides into place, concealing them both in darkness. Trout and the police arrive and discover that Phibes has mysteriously disappeared. Trout and Vesalius recall that the "final curse" was darkness and they speculate that they will encounter Phibes again.
The Ten Plagues of Egypt
Dr. Phibes takes his inspiration for the murders from the Old Testament, the Ten plagues of Egypt:
Boils: Prof. Thornton is stung to death by bees (not shown, only referred to during the film)
Bats: Dr. Dunwoody is mauled to death by bats
Frogs: Dr. Hargreaves's throat is crushed by a mechanical mask of a frog
Blood: Dr. Longstreet has all the blood drained out of his body
Hail: Dr. Hedgepath is frozen to death by a machine spewing ice
Rats: Dr. Kitaj crashes his plane when attacked by rats
Beasts: Dr. Whitcombe is impaled by a brass unicorn head
Locusts: Nurse Allen is eaten by locusts
Death of the first born: Phibes kidnaps and attempts to kill Dr. Vesalius's son Lem
Darkness: At the ambiguous ending of the film, Phibes drains the blood from his own body while injecting embalming fluid, apparently joining his wife in death.
9. Michael Myers
Michael Myers was raised in the small, mid-west town of Haddonfield, Illinois. At age 6 (in the original film) Michael murdered his oldest sister, Judith on Halloween night. It was always unknown why he killed her; or why he spared his baby sister... After being locked up in Smith's Grove Mental Hospital, Michael escapes on October 30 and head home to Haddonfield. At least, that's where his psychologist, Dr. Sam Loomis assumes he is going. Michael, who is now 21, returns home and bides his time. That night he tracks down his baby sister, Laurie Strode (who has been adopted and is oblivious to her violent roots) and proceeds to murder 2 of her friends. He pursues her that entire night (which continues on in Halloween II) but eventually fails. Over the next twenty-four years, Michael killed and killed, believing that his sister Laurie is dead (car crash). He even kills his niece and any person who is attached the Myers/Strode families and anyone who stands in his way. He finally realized Laurie wasn't dead and caught up with on the twentieth anniversary of their original encounter (Halloween: H20). Laurie escaped that event under the impression she'd finished her brother...until four years later when he caught up with her and killed her. It is unknown what became of Michael after Halloween: Resurrection.
On November 9, 1988, Charles Lee Ray, the notorious "Lakeshore Strangler" was being chased down a street by a cop, Mike Norris, who proceeded to fire on Ray, fatally injuring him. Bleeding heavily, Ray stumbled into a toy store and collapsed into a pile of Good Guy dolls. Knowing he would probably die, Ray used voodoo to transfer his soul into one of the dolls. The store was then struck by lightning, and it burned to the ground. Before he died as a human, Ray had randomly murdered several people, many of whom simply got in his way. For ten years, he attempts to use Andy Barclay to transfer his soul into since Andy was the first person to whom Chucky revealed his secret, and thus the only person Chucky could transfer his soul to, in accordance with the voodoo spell
7. Jacob Goodnight
Jacob's killing sprees are owed to religious abuse by his mother. Some of the deaths in the film include zapping a man with a taser then crushing him with a vault, a man tortured to death, and a hook going through a police officer's chin.
6. The Devils Rejects
Captain Spaulding was born on April 13, 1918 in Ruggsville, Texas with the name Johnny Lee Johns. He spent a small part of his childhood in the Ruggsville County home for orphaned boys until being adopted by a black family. Johnny Lee would soon grow very close to his adoptive brother Charlie. Johnny Lee developed an interest in sideshow deformities and violent crime photography, foreshadowing his Captain Spaulding persona. He began his murder spree as Mr. Ding Dong a Bo-Bo using his clown character's name. Charlie would refer to him as Cutter after Johnny Lee stabbed a man to death, which he would take as his name. Around the fall of 1947, Cutter met Mother Firefly, who at the time took the alias Eve Wilson. She already had two children of her own, Rufus and Tiny. Cutter lived with Eve Wilson, even raising their daughter Vera Ellen together. During the summer of 1965, Otis B. Driftwood, wandered into Ruggsville County. He and Otis quickly became close companions and rivals. The two would often fight for control of the family. Otis was asked to live with the family; whom Otis called The Fireflys and it was he who also nicknamed Cutter, Captain Spaulding.
Otis Driftwood was born December 23rd 1929. He was abused and neglected by his parents, who didnt even name him. Otis later claims that he committed his 1st murder at the age of 13. For most of his life Otis was a drifter, travelling over the country from Wilmington, Delamare to Hurst Texas. In the small town of Ruggsville he meets Cutter aka Captain Spaulding and is soon living with his new friends family whom he nicknames the Firefly family after characters from the Groucho Marx movies, the family consists of Spaulding's wife, whom Driftwood calls Mother, her 2 sons and daughter, Vera Ellen whom Driftwood immediatly forms a bond with and nicknames "Angel Baby". Otis and Baby roam across the country, murdering anyone in their path. Beginning in the summer of 1975, Otis begins committing his now famous "Son of Satan" murders. In the winter of 1976, Baby returns to Ruggsville alone and resumes her life on the Firefly farm. Otis, meanwhile, continues his murderous rampage, eventually returning home.
Jonathan Kramer, commonly referred to as The Jigsaw Killer or simply Jigsaw, is a fictional character in the Saw film series. Jigsaw made his debut appearance as the primary antagonist in the first film of the series Saw, and later Saw II and Saw III. He is portrayed by American actor Tobin Bell.
Jigsaw is introduced in the series as a dying cancer patient who is obsessed with teaching people the value of their own lives. As stated by the producers of the third film, and Director Darren Lynn Bousman, Jigsaw is not considered an actual serial killer, but a "scientist" who is determined to initiate the survival instinct in his "subjects", believing that humanity no longer used its instinct of survival.
In the series, Jigsaw usually builds deadly traps for his subjects, which are often a symbolic representation of what is seen as a flaw in the person's life. Jigsaw calls these tests "games", and tells the person the "rules" of the game either by audio or video tape. The rules are tasks that the person must perform in order to pass the test and survive; however, the tasks often involve extreme self-mutilation, although Jigsaw on occasion has used psychological torture for the subject's test.
Even though Jigsaw is not considered a conventional killer, in the first film, he can be seen slashing the throat of a detective in an attempt to escape arrest. The detective lives, but is killed by another character later in the film.
Appearances John Kramer before he became Jigsaw.The Jigsaw Killer character was introduced in the 2004 film Saw through the character Dr. Gordon's recounting of his first killings. Jigsaw is described as a mysterious murderer who kidnaps people he sees as wasting their lives and putting them through symbolic death traps, being a physical representation of the problems that Jigsaw saw in their lives. As his victims increase, the media dub him the "The Jigsaw Killer" - or simply, "Jigsaw" - because of the jigsaw puzzle-shaped piece of flesh that he cuts from an unsuccessful victim, a practice explained in Saw II as reflecting the victim "was missing a vital piece of the human puzzle; the survival instinct". Throughout the film his identity remains mostly unknown; the unstable ex-cop David Tapp suspects he is in fact Dr. Gordon, one of the film's two protagonists, and near the end of the film Gordon and fellow protagonist Adam Faulkner are led to believe it is the hospital orderly Zep. Only at the end of the film is it revealed that the Jigsaw Killer was in fact a terminal cancer patient of Gordon's, John, who spent the entire movie posing as a corpse to watch the test he subjected Adam and Dr. Gordon to.
Much of the character's backstory was revealed in Saw II, the one-shot comic Saw: Rebirth, and Saw IV. John Kramer was originally a building engineer and toy designer working at Standard Engineering Ltd. who lived an uneventful life out of laziness and complacency. The first radical change in his life occurs when his wife Jill started a clinic for drug addicts, something John was not in favor of, as he feels drug addicts are beyond help. His wife is pregnant with a boy at that time, who they plan to name Gideon, after the company that houses in the first building John designed. Jigsaw's signature doll is a design he had made for the boy. However, one of the drug addicts, Cecil, forces his way into the clinic one day to steal some money, and this assault causes Jill to lose the baby. John becomes a broken man, and understands that drug addicts can only help themselves. He subjects Cecil to his first trap, which involves mutilating his face in order to survive. Cecil succeeds, but learns nothing from the experience and instantly tries to attack John, who simply steps aside and allows Cecil to fall into a box filled with razor wire. John's bitter attitude toward life makes him unrecognizable for his wife and friends. John implicitly blames Jill for losing the baby by chosing a dangerous line of work, and his wife's suspicions that John has killed Cecil results in Jill leaving him. Shortly thereafter, John discoveres from Dr. Gordon and Dr. Lynn Denlon that he has an inoperable frontal lobe tumor and cancer, a revelation that makes him realize how valuable and temporary life is. During his stay at the hospital, John becomes distraught at seeing people wasting their lives, knowing his will end soon, and after discovering his successful coworker Paul (a victim in Saw) has cut his wrists he makes a suicide attempt by driving his car off of a cliff. The attempts fails, and John instead decides to dedicate what remains of his life to make people appreciate their own lives by making them face death. Jill tries to make contact with him during that time, but severs all ties with him, as she feels as if another person has crawled from the ashes of John's accident.
In Saw II, Jigsaw leaves a hint in one of his traps that leads the police to apprehend him. There, he puts police Detective Eric Matthews through a test by showing him his son trapped in a house filled with sarin, along with people whom Matthews had framed for crimes they did not commit. Jigsaw offers to let the younger Matthews survive if the Detective sits and talks to him, which ends with Eric brutally beating Jigsaw and forcing him to lead him to the house. Upon their arrival Jigsaw is rescued by Amanda Young, one of his victims who, having survived her trap and seeing her captor as a savior, has become his apprentice.
Jigsaw pouring wax over a tape. By Saw III, a dying Jigsaw is bedridden and extremely concerned over Amanda's practice of making traps that have no escape, a significant break from his M.O. While having Amanda conduct his final experiment, Jigsaw simultaneously puts her through a test to see if she is capable of continuing his work after he dies. She fails this test as she grows jealous of the attention that Jigsaw was giving to the victim Lynn Denlon, the doctor charged with keeping him alive until her husband Jeff Reinhart completed the test set out for him. Amanda ultimately shoots the doctor as Jeff enters the lair. Witnessing his wife getting shot down, Jeff kills Amanda. Jigsaw puts Jeff to the final test, by offering Jeff the change to forgive him for putting him through his ordeal. Jeff fails, as he slices Jigsaw's throat with a power-saw, triggering a device attached to Lynn to kill Lynn and sealing them all in the make-shift hospital room. A final tape activated by Jigsaw upon dying reveals that he has also kidnapped Jeff's daughter, and by killing Jigsaw, Jeff has effectively destroyed the one opportunity to save her.
Jigsaw's death has been confirmed as canon and the producers have no plans to resurrect him, although he is planned to appear in future installments in the Saw franchise. A scene from Saw IV released by Fearnet shows a tape being found in Jigsaw's stomach during his autopsy taunting the police that "the games have just begun". A toe-tag on his corpse revealed John to be 52 at the time of his death. Saw IV also revealed that Jigsaw actually has another student who helped him set-up the earlier traps and who will continue his work, besides Amanda. This person is revealed to be Det. Hoffman, a colleague of Eric Matthews. The tape found in Jigsaw's stomach reveals that there are more students who even Hoffman does not know of.
4. Jason Voorhees
Jason Voorhees is as a non-verbal, indestructible, machete-wielding mass murderer. He's like a great white shark. You can't really defeat him. All you can hope for is to survive. Jason as a "psychotic mama's boy gone horribly awry...Very resilient. You can't kill him, but he feels pain, just not like everyone else. Jason is a "psycho-savant", and believes his actions are based on pleasing his mother, and not anything personal.
Thomas Hewitt is the main killer of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake series. He was born in a slaughterhouse and left to die in a dumpster. He was discovered by Luda Mae Hewitt while she was searching for food to feed her poor family and she took him home to raise. It was soon discovered that Thomas had a degenerative facial disease that discolored his skin and rotted off his nose. Due to this disease Thomas was treated badly by his peers, which may have caused his reclusiveness lack of emotion in the series. It was revealed that Thomas was also self-mutilatory and made masks out of animals as a young child.
Thomas would later take employment in the local Slaughterhouse (which was, ironically, where he was born), hiding his disfigurement with a small muzzle mask. After the slaughterhouse was condemned, his boss and another employee attempted to drive him out, insulting him by calling him a "dumb animal" and a "retard." Acting on a long-burning rage, Thomas beat and killed his boss with a sledgehammer and stole a chainsaw which would become his iconic weapon. After his Uncle Charlie assumed the identity of the local sheriff, Thomas would began torturing and butchering the victims that Charlie would usually spot and at times kidnap. After torturing and killing one victim, Thomas skinned his face and used the skin as a mask, another trademark that earned him the moniker, "Leatherface."
After one of his victims severed his arm and escaped the police discovered the Hewitts deeds, Thomas attacked and killed two police officers and fled. He was never captured and the case today remains open.
2. Norman Bates
Inspired by the ghoulish real-life murderer Ed Gein, Robert Bloch created Norman Bates as the protagonist of his novel, Psycho. Norman is a fat middle-aged drunkard who has an unnaturally close relationship with his mother. He runs the motel his mother owns. But Mother is insane; and when she suspects Norman of desiring an attractive young guest, she sneaks into the girl's room and stabs her to death as she showers. Norman covers up the murder; but Mother soon kills a private investigator hired to find the girl.
We learn at the end that "Mother" is Norman himself who developed a split personality after murdering his real mother and her lover in a fit of jealousy. Unable to bear the guilt, he took on her personality to persuade himself that she was still alive. Even more ghoulishly, he stole her corpse and preserved it, which helped maintain the illusion she was still living in their house by the motel.
The above also describes the character and predicament of the cinematic Norman in Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho (1960), but for one key difference. At the suggestion of his scenarist, Joseph Stefano, Hitchcock cast the young, boyishly handsome Anthony Perkins, a leading heartthrob at the time, in the role of Norman Bates. Perkins's charm and good looks made it easier for Hitchcock to conceal his surprise ending, which reveals the true nature of the troubled young man. He doesn't drink (as far as we know), but he's no less a psychopath than his literary counterpart.
We meet Norman when an attractive girl (Janet Leigh) checks into his motel. We find this shy, nervous young man is lonely. He invites the girl to have supper with him at his house, which is right next to the motel. But Mother is having none of it. We don't see Mother, of course; but we hear "her" shouting from the forbidding Victorian house. Norman returns to the girl and, knowing she must have heard the shouting, apologizes. "Mother--what is the phrase? She isn't quite herself today."
Instead, the two of them have supper in a parlor behind the office. Norman tells her that the motel gets few guests because the main highway was moved. He's mostly alone with his mother, a situation he clearly regrets. We find that Norman is an amateur taxidermist, a fact confirmed by the stuffed birds that decorate the parlor. He likes to stuff birds because they're passive creatures. He couldn't bear to stuff more aggressive animals, like foxes, chimps, dogs, etc.
Norman's own passive behavior switches suddenly to anger when the conversation turns back to his mother, and the girl suggests that he have her put away in an institution. Outraged and almost frightened, he tells her that his mother is not insane: "She just goes a little mad sometimes." He quickly regains his composure.
The girl is ready to return to her room. Norman asks if she'd like to stay and talk some more, but she begs off. He has forgotten--or pretends to have forgotten--her name, and she reminds him: it's Miss Crane. But Norman checks the register again and is amused to find that it says "Marie Samuels."
Norman has a creepy habit. Once "Marie" is in her room, which is right next to the parlor, he watches her through a peephole as she takes off her clothes. After getting his fill of her nude body, he goes back to the house. Soon he returns to the motel and sneaks into her room as she showers. Now, dressed in his mother's clothes and wielding a knife, he believes he is Mother, avenging "herself" against the slut who is trying to seduce "her" son. "Mother" stabs the girl to death with a kitchen knife and runs out of the room.
Norman switches back to his own personality, "sees" that his mother is covered in blood and runs back to the motel. His fears are confirmed. The girl is dead, and "Mother" has killed her.
Like the dutiful son, he covers up the crime. He wraps the corpse in the shower curtain, puts it in the trunk of the girl's car along with all her other belongings and drives the car out to a swamp. He sinks the car and returns home.
Later, a private investigator named Arbogast (Martin Balsam) shows up at the motel. He's looking for the girl, whose real name is Marion Crane. Norman tries to get rid of him, but is forced to admit that Marion had spent the night at the motel recently. Arbogast wants to speak to Norman's mother, whom he sees sitting near a window of the house. Little does he know, this old woman is only a corpse.
Arbogast finally leaves, but predictably, returns. He sneaks into the house, hoping to find Mrs. Bates. Norman knows this man is dangerous to him. He switches over to his Mother personality, then finds Arbogast at the top of the stairs where he stabs him with his kitchen knife. Arbogast stumbles down the stairs. Norman meets him at the bottom of the staircase and stabs him to death. Arbogast's last sight is that of Norman dressed as the woman he had been looking for and surely regrets finding.
Norman once again covers up the crime he believes his mother has committed. He hides his Mother--again, just her corpse--in the fruit cellar. "She" protests, but Norman picks her up against her will and carries her into the basement. Despite her proven ability to overpower and kill men and women alike, she is unable to resist.
Norman, as he expected, soon has more visitors. They claim to be a married couple wanting a room for the night, but Norman doesn't buy it, especially since the woman looks so much like his last guest. He may well suspect who they are, but he never learns for certain. But we already know: they're Marion's sister Lila (Vera Miles) and Marion's boyfriend Sam (John Gavin).
Soon, Sam visits Norman in his office, claiming that his wife is resting and that he would like to chat. Sam's small talk quickly turns into hostile interrogation before letting slip a hint--which Norman immediately deciphers--that Lila is in the house looking for Mother.
Norman and Sam struggle. Norman grabs a vase and knocks Sam out cold, then runs to the house. He doesn't immediately go looking for Lila. First he dons his mother's personality and dresses in her clothes. He finds Lila in the fruit cellar and intends to stab her with his knife. But Sam has revived in time to run to the house and overpower Norman before he can.
Norman never hears the explanation for his crimes that we hear from the psychiatrist who examines him. We can judge ourselves how accurate the doctor's judgment is. One thing is certain: Norman is gone and "Mother" has taken over.
The doctor predicts this development is permanent. When Anthony Perkins returns to his role in Psycho II (1983), we learn this is not true. Norman is indisputably back, but by the end of the film so is Mother.
Pinhead was not always a Cenobite, but was in fact once human. Pinhead originated as Captain Elliott Spencer, who was born into the middle class British society of the Victorian Era circa 1887.
He joined the British Expeditionary Force, eventually rising to the rank of Captain and served during World War I. Spencer was a charismatic and eloquent man, who could feel great empathy and compassion for those around him. These are factors which undoubtedly assisted in his mental breakdown which he suffered after the Battle of Flanders in 1916. Spencer did not believe he had a right to live after watching many of his comrades perish in horrific circumstances. He had also lost faith in the human race after witnessing the inhumanity one individual could enact upon another. He had lost faith in God, who he believed had failed humanity, claiming "God fell at Flanders too."
Whilst other survivors of the war turned to religion, philosophy, music, art and poetry, the disillusioned and jaded Spencer wandered the world and became something of a hedonist, turning to the baser methods of gratification for satisfaction and pleasure. These included opium, alcohol, and sex; however these were insufficient, as the sensations were never strong enough and Spencer always wanted greater highs, leading to his dabbling in the Occult, Satanism and black magic. By his own definition, he had become "an explorer of forbidden pleasures." He had indeed become a lost soul, descending deeper and deeper into madness and eventually sadomasochism as pain became indistinguishable from pleasure.
His transformation into Pinhead (a.k.a. "Lead Cenobite", "The Angel of Suffering" and "The Dark Prince of Pain") occurred when he opened the demonic Lament Configuration, which he picked up from a market in India in 1921. In the Hellraiser comic book series, Pinhead is depicted as the latest incarnation of the Cenobite spirit Xipe Totec, an entity derived from Aztec mythology.
Pinhead's role has varied with each Hellraiser installment. In the original Hellraiser, Pinhead was simply the "Lead Cenobite" and was part of a collective group giving pleasure and pain to those who opened the box. They were not "evil" as such, simply a force that existed to explore experience. The second film followed this but the third film radically changed the original concept, making Pinhead and the Cenobites into typical Hollywood monsters. In the fourth film he is presented as a demon of Hell bent on world domination, and by the fifth he simply tortures those who solve the box. The seventh film reverts closer to the original film, with the Cenobites responsible for pleasure and pain, but the characters seem more demonic as in later installments. In the Hellraiser comic book series, it would seem that Leviathan might be considered the overlord of the Cenobite world.
Pinhead presented something of a departure from the horror movie villains who preceded him. Unlike Leatherface, Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers, he can and does speak. However, he is rarely comical, as are Freddy Krueger or Chucky. When he does indulge in humour, it is notably dry. Another difference between Pinhead and other film killers, supernatural or otherwise, is his need to have been purposely summoned, as The Lament Configuration must be opened for the Cenobites to enter the (real) world. Pinhead does not kill indiscriminately, nor for vengeance; he kills because he was conjured from Hell by the opener of the puzzle box.
Pinhead's other difference from typical film killers is that he can be reasoned and bargained with. In both Hellraiser and Hellraiser: Hellseeker, the Kirsty character bargains with Pinhead to offer him more "souls" in exchange for her own (in particular, her human adversaries), thus resulting in her life being spared. Pinhead does not kill quickly, as he and the other Cenobites are well-versed in torture. Death does not end the suffering of his victims either, as they are brought to Hell/The Labyrinth, where, Pinhead says, "We have an eternity to know your flesh." Sometimes he stands back as the other Cenobites under his command do the actual killing. Pinhead is obsessed with pain and exploring the limits of the flesh, calmly observing his "experiments" as they suffer under the ministrations of him and fellow members of his order.
The act of opening The Lament Configuration is not always sufficient reason to be killed: in Hellbound: Hellraiser II, Pinhead stops the Cenobites from killing Tiffany, an emotionally traumatized girl who opened the box only after being manipulated by Dr. Channard. Pinhead remarks, “…it is not hands that call us, it is desire…” Later in the film Pinhead is killed by Dr. Channard who is by then a Cenobite himself, but not before Channard returns Pinhead to his original human form, as opposed to the other Cenobites, who were killed outright and then returned to their human forms upon dying.
He very rarely speaks to his subordinates and usually does so only when issuing an order. Only Cenobites of comparable ranking to himself, such as the Cenobite Princess Angelique, are spoken to as equals.
Pinhead is an extremely powerful being, and as such, has several supernatural abilities. He is virtually unstoppable and invulnerable in the physical sense, but rarely engages in physical combat, instead letting hooked chains do his bidding. His favorite form of attack is summoning these hooks and chains to mutilate victims, often pulling in several directions to rip them apart. These chains are subject to his total mental control and he may direct them at will. The chains may even change shape after having attached to a victim. Pinhead is highly resistant to damage and direct assault, able to shrug off all but the most potent attacks.
His magic is also used for creating objects out of thin air, teleporting, creating explosions at distances and deceiving opponents with illusions. Pinhead is also familiar with the Occult and magic, with an ability to read minds. He is at once charismatic and terrifying, and can often persuade others to perform horrific acts to his favour.
It is not known if Pinhead's power exceeds that of other Cenobites, although he was once killed by the Channard Cenobite after remembering his human life. In Parts 3 and 4, Pinhead creates Cenobites from his victims, which tend to be physically manipulated to resemble an aspect of their human lives with special abilities granted in the process. Pinhead is rarely without an entourage of such beings.
When the Pinhead character's inhuman evil (Unbound Pinhead) manifests in the world in Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth, it seems to have nearly unlimited and highly versatile powers. He could telekinetically control vast areas, transfer matter to different forms whether it be living or non living, create and control fire, animate objects, and the like. Towards the end of the film, Pinhead's human side suggests that he is no longer bound by the rules governing other Cenobites (suggesting others among them might have such power).
