Hellraiser: Deader – Winter’s Lament is a non-profit fan film prequel to the seventh Hellraiser film, Hellraiser: Deader (2005). Winter’s Lament is a character study, filling in the back story of Winter, the main antagonist of HR: Deader. This film will tie-in, and in some cases re-create, scenes and/or events from Hellraiser: Bloodline (1996), Hellraiser: Deader (2005) and the fan film Hellraiser: Prophecy (2006).

The story examines the key events in Winter’s life, spanning nine years, that led him on his journey towards his final confrontation with the Cenobites. By December, 2007, all 21 roles had been cast, and the film went into pre-production. Principal Photography began on Febuary 2nd, 2008, in New York, and proceeded for four weekends through March.

The film is intended to premiere in 2009.
