After Hulu released some first-look photos of Pinhead & Co. last week, now comes the first trailer drop for the much-anticipated reimagining of Hellraiser, produced by none other than genre icon Clive Barker. Be sure to watch the Hellraiser trailer down below.
In the new Hellraiser, “A young woman named Riley (Odessa A’Zion), who is 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.”
The 1987 original was written and directed by Barker, based on his ’86 novella The Hellbound Heart. The supernatural horror involved a mystical puzzle box, the Lemarchand Configuration (renamed as the Lament Configuration in the films), with the power to summon the Cenobites, a group of formerly human-turned-demonic sadomasochistic beings.
David Bruckner (The Ritual, V/H/S) directs from a script by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski (The Night House), with the story by David S. Goyer. The film’s ensemble cast includes Jamie Clayton as Pinhead, 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.
The Hulu original debuts on October 7th. Watch the Hellraiser trailer below:
