The ‘Hellraiser’ reboot is coming sooner than expected, we’ve got a release date and a first look at Jamie Clayton’s Pinhead!


Straight from the official Hulu Twitter, we learned that the upcoming hellraiser the reboot with Jamie Clayton should be released much sooner than we might have thought.

Recently rated as a hard R, due to “heavy, gory horror violence, pervasive language, sexual content, and brief graphic nudity”, the reboot has so far been met with mixed reactions from loyal fans of the franchise.

Hulu reinvigorates Dead Horror franchises

Hulu’s re-imagining of the Predator franchise.

Hulu seems to be on a bit of a roll lately, with its excellent Costs drop earlier this year, then most recent Prey, which garnered rave reviews and gave fans of the Predator franchise new hope for the future. Hulu seems to be taking things seriously, including with the new hellraiser, bringing in franchise creator Clive Barker as executive producer to ensure its quality.

The upcoming reboot feels like a fresh, yet faithful, take on the franchise.

“A young woman struggling with addiction comes into possession of an ancient puzzle box, unaware that its purpose is to summon the Cenobites, a group of sadistic supernatural beings from another dimension.”

While that doesn’t reveal much, it looks like we’ll be seeing the familiar faces we’ve grown accustomed to in the franchise’s previous ten films, which is something at least.

As already mentioned, the official Hulu Twitter announced the David Bruckner-led reboot of hellraiser will hit our screens just in time for Halloween, October 7th.

With our first look at Jamie Clayton’s Pinhead, albeit obscured, the reimagined and updated version of the classic horror figure appears to be similar to the original.

As already mentioned, Jamie Clayton of Sense8 the celeb stars alongside an ensemble cast that includes Odessa A’zion (family), Adam Faison (Everything will be alright)Drew Starkey (the devil all the time), Brandon Flynn (13 reasons why), Aoife Hinds (The long call) and many others in undisclosed roles.

A full trailer surely won’t be far away which will shed more light on the film, but for now fans will have to make do with what we have.

It doesn’t look like the next movie will be the only modern foray into the franchise, with HBO developing a Hellraiser TV series. From now on, David Gordon Green of Halloween, Halloween kills, and Halloween ends trilogy is attached to produce a few episodes, including the pilot. HBO followed in Hulu’s footsteps by having Clive Barker produce the show as well.
