Dead by Daylight Chapter 21 Teaser Trailer; Could it be Pinhead from Hellraiser?

Dead by Daylight Chapter 21

Behavior Interactive has teased Chapter 21 of Dead By Daylight, with clues and speculation pointing to Pinhead from Hellraiser. 

While the use of a TV would initially seem to indicate Sadako Yamamura from The Ring, the trailer does feature other cryptic clues. The impossible 19:87 time in the corner could mean the year 1987, and there is an image of what could be a blooming red flower hidden in the static. The word “hell” also reportedly appeared in clues via the game’s Discord, along with letter clues posted on Twitter spelling “raiser.”

Combined with two tweets indicating bells and four notes, the most popular theory is the next killer being Pinhead from Hellraiser. Nonetheless, fans are also theorizing the antagonist of Candyman, and Spingtrap from Five Nights at Freddy’s. 

You can find the Chapter 21 Teaser below.

The series’ popularity has led to plenty of horror-based crossovers. Including Silent Hill, Resident Evil, Halloween, Nightmare on Elm Street, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Scream. Whether original characters or those from other IPs, The Entity reaches out across the world and dimensions to pull more killers into its own twisted realm.

Dead By Daylight is available now on Windows PC (via Steam), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Android, iOS, and Google Stadia. In case you missed it, you can find our review here (we recommend it!)
