Popular Cenobite character “Chatter” heads to Nova Nights London

It was announced this week that the iconic Cenobite “Chatter” from the Hellraiser franchise will be making an appearance. Actor Nicholas Vince plays the very popular creature from the abyss and he will be heading to Nova Nights which is an event hosted by former Bizarre Magazine editor Billy Chainsaw. Vince has been involved with many things since his role in films like NIGHTBREED. This night will celebrate his work and feature his short THE NIGHT WHISPERED and HELLBENT where here is the star. Read ahead for all the details and if you are in the area go check out Nova Nights on August 16th.

Conceived and hosted by horror and transgressive artist/actor/filmmaker/journalist and former film editor of BIZARRE magazine BILLY CHAINSAW, Episode 5 of his regular Nova Nights event takes place at London’s Horse Hospital and focuses on the life and work of NICHOLAS VINCE.

NICHOLAS VINCE is an actor best known for his magnificent performances in a trio of horror maestro Clive Barker movies – as the nightmarish Chattering Cenobite in HELLRAISER (1987), and HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER II (1988), and as the creepy Kinski in NIGHT BREED (1990). Since then, through his work in comic books, as an author, and more recently writing and directing his own short films, Vince has become a genre legend.

The evening’s running order is as follows:


Director Nicholas Vince

R/T 8 mins

Nicholas Vince’s directorial debut revolves around three teens that encounter a sinister stranger (Vince) and his dog on a late night walk home. It’s a subtle slice of atmospheric creepiness.

Live conversation between BILLY CHAINSAW & NICHOLAS VINCE discussing the artist’s work and influences + audience Q&A.


R/T 84 mins

Director: Paul Etheredge-Outz

Vince’s choice is regarded as the first gay stalk and slash movie. Unfolding at Halloween, the tale sees a devil-masked, naked torso-ed psycho decapitating gays and waltzing off with their heads. Suitably sick and darkly hilarious, this relatively low budget thrill-ride is chock full of well fleshed out characters, witty dialogue, and great gore set pieces.

The evening will conclude with an autograph signing session, during which all attendees will have the opportunity to talk to Nicholas Vince directly.
