David Bruckner‘s (The Night House, The Ritual) all-new reimagining of Clive Barker’s 1987 cult horror classic Hellraiser is all set to debut in the U.S. exclusively on Hulu this coming October 7 as part of the streamer’s annual “Huluween” celebration of shuddersome entertainment. Accordingly, Hulu has today summoned the first official trailer for Bruckner’s latest feature.
Directed by Bruckner, with a screenplay penned by Ben Collins & Luke Piotrowski (Super Dark Times, The Night House), from a screen story they co-wrote with David S. Goyer (“The Sandman”, The Dark Knight, Blade), this reboot of the titular franchise tells the tale of a young woman struggling with addiction who comes into possession of an ancient, enigmatic puzzle box. What she is at first oblivious to is the fact that said artifact serves to summon the Cenobites, a group of sadistic supernatural beings from another dimension.
Hellraiser’s extensive ensemble cast includes Odessa A’zion (“Fam,” “Grand Army”), Jamie Clayton (“The L Word: Generation Q,” “Sense8”), 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”).
A Hulu Original, in association with Spyglass Media Group, the film reunites Director David Bruckner, Screenwriters Ben Collins & Luke Piotrowski, Writer/Producer David S. Goyer and Producer Keith Levine, all of whom were teamed on 2020’s “The Night House,” along with Producers Clive Barker and Marc Toberoff and Executive Producers Gary Barber, Peter Oillataguerre and Todd Williams. Chris Stone and Gracie Wheelan serve as co-producers.
Hellraiser debuts in the U.S. exclusively on HULU on October 7 and we’ll leave you with the official trailer below.
