Mark Phillips, founder of Nightmares Unlimited, developed a solid reputation for creating screen-quality replicas of props from horror fans’ favorite films; popular items include Freddy Krueger gloves, Phantasm Spheres, and Re-Animator syringes. In the past couple years, however, he’s achieved legendary status for his creative mash-ups. His most recent masterpiece is certainly a sight to marvel at: A hybrid of Hellraiser’s Lament Configuration and the deadly Sentinels from Phantasm. Behold: The Cenosphere!
Phillips explains how this collaboration took place, telling Dread Central, “Derek Neal of Configuration Boxes and I met about 6 weeks ago at Flashback Weekend. We were discussing the Hell-Razor glove when he asked if I had seen his lament spheres. We both kind of looked at each other and decided to collaborate on a Hellraiser/Phantasm mash up! I can see The Tallman and Pinhead teaming up if they ran into each other. The Red Planet gets the bodies, Hell gets the souls! Truly a match made in Hell! So, I sat down and drew up the designs and it was born.
“Derek Neal makes the spheres. I cut the blades and have them engraved by Billy Effner at Engraveyard Studios. He also helped me with the design pattern on the blades. And I put them all together. Special shout out to my buddy Forrest Warner for coming up with a bad ass name…the Cenosphere!”
