Hulu dropped their first Hellraiser teaser and we finally get our first red-tinged voyeuristic peek at Jamie Clayton (The L Word: Generation Q, Sense8) as the new Pinhead! This will be a reimagining of Clive Barker's 1987 horror staple (pin?) This time the script is penned by Chainsaw Award winners Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski (The Night House) who reunite with The Night House director David Bruckner along with writer/producer David S. Goyer and producer Keith Levine, bringing back a whole Night House team, which.. if you've seen it.. is very promising indeed.
Hellraiser follows a young woman struggling with addiction as she 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. We could have told you the purpose, lady, but summon away! Cenobites assemble! We've already mentioned Clayton will be stepping into the role of the lead cenobite, the ensemble cast also includes Odessa A’zion (Fam, Grand Army), Adam Faison (Everything’s Gonna Be Okay, Yes Day), Drew Starkey (Outer Banks, The Devil All the Time), Brandon Flynn (Ratched, 13 Reasons Why), Aoife Hinds (The Long Call, Normal People), Jason Liles (Stereoscope, Rampage), Yinka Olorunnife (The Transporter), Selina Lo (Boss Level, Q8 Unleashed), Zachary Hing (Halo), Kit Clarke (Leonardo), with Goran Visnjic (The Boys, Timeless) and Hiam Abbass (Succession, Blade Runner 2049).
And now, behold... such sights...
That blood-tinged, grungy lens as we peek through the windows of the letters! Pins on high alert, passing by like watching the rapidly receding scenery from a train car! Punctuated with: we have such title fonts to show you, and it's a good one. We can't wait. Luckily, we won't have to much longer!
Hellraiser debuts in the U.S. exclusively on Hulu on October 7. And you can safely bet the film will receive ample coverage in the next issue of FANGORIA.
