“It opens up, and it cuts you! And then they come to collect…” Hulu has revealed an official trailer for Hellraiser, their brand new take on this classic horror franchise. David Brucker, of The Night House and The Ritual, directs from Clive Barker’s original book, reuniting him with David Goyer as producer / writer. The big twist in this one is that the new Pinhead is a woman – played by Jamie Clayton. And she looks freaky!! Can’t wait. In this reimagining of Clive Barker’s seminal Hellraiser franchise, a young woman must confront the sadistic, supernatural forces behind an enigmatic puzzlebox responsible for her brother’s disappearance. The ensemble cast includes Odessa A’zion, Jamie Clayton, Adam Faison, Drew Starkey, Brandon Flynn, Aoife Hinds, Jason Liles, Yinka Olorunnife, Selina Lo, Zachary Hing, Kit Clarke, with Goran Visnjic and Hiam Abbass. This is gnarly, holy shit!! Looks like it might be brutal and extra gory.
