The moment we’ve all been waiting for is finally here. The official trailer for Hulu’s upcoming Hellraiser reboot has been released. And, as you can see below, it looks like it’ll be an incredible interpretation of Clive Barker’s iconic story.
Clive Barker first created the Hellraiser franchise with his novella The Hellbound Heart. The story was later adapted as the much more iconic 1987 horror film Hellraiser. Clive Barker directed this interpretation which also gave Doug Bradley the role of “Pinhead.” This was a role he continued to portray for the following seven films, ultimately being recast for the next two “sequels,” and further paving the way for this year’s reboot.
Jamie Clayton takes over as Pinhead this time around, and as revealed in the trailer, it looks like she’ll be doing a great job.
Here’s the official Hellraiser trailer:
Luckily, fans won’t have much longer to wait for the highly-anticipated film. With less than a month before it’s scheduled to be released on Hulu, it will an incredibly short wait. While it’s only been a few years since the last Hellraiser installment was released, a proper reboot has been in development hell for much longer than that. Now that we’re finally getting one – it’ll be exciting to see what’s in store for the property going forward.
David Bruckner directed the upcoming Hellraiser reboot. David Goyer wrote the story for the film, with the screenplay having been written by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski.
Jamie Clayton has been cast as the Hell Priest, otherwise known as Pinhead, who was notably played by actor Doug Bradley in the past. The rest of the film’s cast includes Odessa A’zion, Adam Faison, Drew Starkey, Brandon Flynn, Aoife Hinds, Jason Liles, Yinka Olorunnife, Selina Lo, Zachary Hing, Kit Clarke, Goran Visnjic, and Hiam Abbass.
Fans will finally be able to view Hellraiser via Hulu on October 7, 2022. Stay tuned to ScreenGeek for additional updates on the highly-anticipated reboot as we have them.
