Chatterer is a Cenobite appearing in the movies Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II. He was originally a child before he was pulled into the Labyrinth and severely mutilated into his current form. Like all Cenobites, he is clad in black leather. His mouth is stretched open by eight hook tipped wires exposing his namesake chattering teeth. His tan skin has been warped and burned and scarring covers his nose and eyes. Like the Female Cenobite, in Hellbound: Hellraiser II, his appearance is altered; the wires on his face are taken off (the damage caused by the wires remains), the scarring over his eyes is stripped off, he is able to breathe through tiny nostrils and his ears are starting to grow back. He is killed by the Channard Cenobite when a tentacle-spear was thrown into his chest. When he was killed, he reverted back to his human form, which was revealed to be a young boy.

The NECA packaging suggests he is "the 2nd Lieutenant of Hell" though nothing in any other media supports this and, in fact, the Female and Butterball cenobites act more as equals to Pinhead with Chatterer acting more as the 'muscle' of the group, actively grabbing and gagging Kirsty with his fingers in the original film.

In the fourth Hellraiser movie, the similar Chatter Beast was introduced. Pinhead's canine familiar, it underwent the same process as Chatterer, with exposed large and sharp teeth that click constantly. In the movies to follow, a new Chatterer was introduced: Chatterer III.

The Chatterer in Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II was played by Nicholas Vince; who also appeared in Nightbreed as Kinski. The role of the Chatter Beast in Hellraiser: Bloodline was played by Jodie St. Michael. While the Torso Chatterer from Hellraiser: Inferno and Chatterer III from Hellraiser: Hellseeker, Hellraiser: Deader and Hellraiser: Hellworld were all performed by Mike Jay Regan.

Chatterer will appear in Hellraiser: Revelations. He will be portrayed by Jolene Andersen.
