Coming next month exclusively to Hulu is a brand new Hellraiser film that features a new cast and a new story. This isn’t a reboot or remake but rather a continuation in the same universe.
But first, the trailer:
The official synopsis involves “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.“
Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, director David Buckner stated very bluntly that this film is not a remake but a new story that takes place in the same universe as the originals. Here is his whole quote on the subject:
“This is not a remake. I just didn’t think you could ever remake the original Hellraiser. It’s too much its own thing and it would be, I think, perilous territory for filmmakers, because how do you top that? This is a new story in the Hellraiser universe.”
Hellraiser comes exclusively to Hulu on October 7th. The film is directed by David Bruckner.
