The Hulu-exclusive adaptation of Clive Barker’s Heart of Hell finally has its first trailer for fans of the series.
Fans finally got a closer look at the new Hellraiser movie. The film has been around for a while — even its release date has been set — but today marks the first time the film has shown the right footage.
The trailer introduces fans old and new to the series’ famous puzzle box, and shows off Cenobites’ updated grotesque design. Perhaps most notably, we also get to see the latest iteration of Pinhead’s iconic design.
The original Hellraiser (released in 1987) was a film adaptation of the novella by renowned horror author Clive Barker called Heart of Hell. Stephen King called the author “The Future of Horror,” and the film itself became a genre classic.
Horror fans will remember that the original Hellraiser film produced not one, not two, but nine sequels between 1987 and 2018. While the new film will be the 11th Hellraiser film, it’s being billed as a new adaptation of the original short story that spawned it, rather than a continuation of the other films.
In “Hellraiser,” a young woman battling drug addiction possesses an ancient puzzle box, unaware that its purpose is to summon the Cenobites, a group of sadistic supernatural beings from another dimension.
Hellraiser will premiere exclusively on Hulu on October 7, 2022. The original author, Clive Barker, is one of its producers.
