HR4 Deleted Scenes Photos

This section needs a special introduction. These are not ordinary deleted scenes, Bloodline was the victim of a complete top to bottom change, dictated by the studio as filming was nearing completion. The film never began in the future, it was not intended as "hellraiser in space" but as a connected anthology of three storylines, shifting from past, present to future. The images below are organised in accordance to both the original script and known changes made at different stages of production. It is intended to be a pictorial guide to the version of Bloodline we were most likely intended to see. We hope you enjoy this taste of what almost was.

Phillip goes to the window and looks inside. He sees Angelique kissing the Lament Configuration, to make it "complete". She then offers a game. For each movement of the Box the Gamblers can make, she will remove an item of clothing. Eventually they open the Box and Angelique transforms into her demonic form. The Gamblers are restrained and the chandelier bends into four metal spikes that fall and impale them. Phillip flees.
