New Looks At HELLRAISER’s Pinhead And The Masque

With Hulu's franchise reimagining of Clive Barker's 1987 horror classic, Hellraiser, set to release on October 7th, the network has released additional images of Jamie Clayton as Pinhead and one of the new Cenobites, The Masque (Vukašin Jovanović).

In the new Hellraiser, “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.”

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. The leader of the Cenobites, later referred to as "Pinhead", was portrayed by Doug Bradley between 1987 and 2005. Later depictions of Pinhead were played by Paul T. Taylor and Stephan Smith Collins, with Fred Tatasciore providing the voice.

David Bruckner (The Ritual, V/H/S) directs from a script by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski (The Night House). Barker is also on board as producer. The ensemble cast joining Jamie Clayton 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.

Hellraiser releases exclusively on Hulu from October 7th. See the gorgeous photos below:
