We’re just a couple of weeks away from Pinhead’s return to our screens, and we’re now getting a better look at the upcoming Hellraiser reboot with both a new trailer and poster.
The trailer gives us the best look yet at Jamie Clayton’s portrayal of Pinhead, along with a few of the other Cenobite characters that come along with the franchise’s classic villain. The clips also show the human characters becoming more and more fascinated with the mysterious puzzle box, which of course leads to plenty of suffering and pain for those who refuse to stay away.

We also got a look at the first poster for Hellraiser, which shows a silhouette of Pinhead with the franchise’s iconic puzzle box making up the backdrop.
Hellraiser is headed to Hulu on October 7.

The movie’s official synopsis says, “In the all-new Hellraiser, a young woman struggling with addiction 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.”
Alongside Clayton, Hellraiser will star Odessa A’zion, Adam Faison, Drew Starkey, Brandon Flynn, Aoife Hinds, Jason Liles, Yinka Olorunnife, Selina Lo, Zachary Hing, Kit Clarke, Goran Visnjic, and Hiam Abbass.
Clayton is the fourth actor to play Pinhead, while Hellraiser 2022 marks the eleventh film in the franchise. Fans are hopeful this one can start to right the Hellraiser ship, as 2018’s Hellraiser Judgment only dug the franchise into a deeper hole.
