The release date, trailer, cast, and everything we know about the horror remake of Hellraiser

A reboot-slash-sequel to the popular horror cover comes to our screens.

Clive Barker''s saga is one of horror''s longest-running franchises. Originally adapted and directed by the author himself from his own novella, "The Hellbound Heart," in 1987, quickly became one of the genre''s staples. As slashers and serial killers dominated horror, the story of the Cenobites and their glaring pain stuttering among the crowd. Pinhead, the central antagonist, became one of the most instantly iconic villains in horror films and

The studios have spent a long time trying to remake or reboot the series, but everything failed. This fall, Hulu is reviving the Cenobites with the help of the R-rated (the same title as the very first film in the series). Horror enthusiasts and novices should prepare for an all-new descent into hell.

So here''s everything we know about the brand-new.

When is the Hellraiser release date?

On Hulu, no word has been made on its international distribution, although it appears probable it will turn up on Disney Plus outside of America, as well as other Hulu properties.

What is the plot of Hellraiser?

According to the IMDb synopsis (opens in a new tab), the remake is a "reimagining" of Barker''s franchise, focusing on "a young woman who must confront the sadistic, supernatural forces behind her brother''s disappearance." This series, which is titled "Reimagining," will not be a straight-up remake of the first film or novella, which focuses on a sadistic man and his lover who tries to detach him as well as the C

The Cenobites are the central antagonists of the saga, a series of interdimensional beings who serve as guards for The Order of the Gash. They were once human but were later transformed into their grotesque, bondage-inspired fetish appearances after opening the puzzle-box they now look after. Cenobites are so alien from their previous human beings that they can no longer distinguish between sensations of pleasure and pain. When summoned by humans who open the box, they take

The first three films follow a remarkably well-constructed narrative arc, with a large emphasis on Kirsty, whose devious uncle and stepmother helped to usher in the Cenobites, and the lead Cenobite Pinhead. After that, the film quickly devolved into more traditional slasher fare, which quickly splintered all of the characters and moved it further away from its origins. The new seems eager to return to the original story''s simplicity.

Hellraiser trailer

An official trailer for the Hellraiser has been released that gives fans a more detailed look at the sequel to the horror franchise. Following a peek at the puzzle box that unleashes the Cenobites, the trailer allows fans to take a first look at the demons from another dimension, including Jamie Clayton''s Pinhead. Watch the trailer immediately below (as well as the previous teaser).

Who is in the Hellraiser cast?

Doug Bradley, who played Pinhead in almost every movie, was the uniting force. This time around, Jamie Clayton is being played from Netflixs and Showtime''s.

Clayton is one of the most well-known trans actresses currently working in the novella, and her casting is pretty much perfect for the lead Cenobite. In the novella, the Cenobite (who isn''t actually named Pinhead until the second film) is described as having "the voice of an excited girl," and being "sexless." In the film, the opportunity to reassert Pinhead as a queer character is very satisfying (Barkers''s work is famous

Riley, the heroine who wants her brother, is staring alongside Clayton. They include Brandon Flynn (, Goran Visnjic,, Drew Starkey, and Hiam Abbass).

Who is the Hellraiser director?
