YouTuber Mr. H is known for his baritone tenor and explorations of today’s favorite horror and sci-fi movies. Over the past few months, he’s released a series of biography videos exploring the lesser-explored Cenobites who inhabit Clive Barker’s Hellraiser Franchise. We’ve previously brought you illuminating studies of The Chatterer, Butterball, and The Engineer, (among others) all of which we highly recommend—especially if you’re a Barker fan.
Three of his most recent Hellraiser biographies feature the female cenobites, and the adage about Hell having no fury like a woman scorned is absolutely apropos. While Pinhead is the leader of the Cenobites on celluloid, the leader of The Order of the Gash in the novella The Hellbound Heart was actually a woman—and she was fierce!

Below, learn more about The Female Cenobite aka Deep Throat (played by Grace Kriby in Hellraiser and Barbie Wilde in Hellbound: Hellraiser II), Angelique (played by Valentina Vargas) in Hellraiser: Bloodline, and The Wire Twins (played by Maureen Sue & Darlene Levin) in Hellraiser V: Inferno. While the Twins are the most bizarre and mysterious, they are actually the most true-to-the-source adaptations of Barkers Cenobites on film.
Give the videos a spin and let us know what you think in the Comments section. Are you a fan of the female Cenobite of Hellraiser? Which biography did you find the most illuminating?
Now if we can only get Mr. H to do a biography of Julia (played by Clare Higgins in the first two Hellraiser movies); she is, after all, the most evil of them all!
