Hulu has given a release date and put out a teaser for their upcoming reimagining of the 1987 horror classic Hellraiser. The film will debut exclusively on the streamer as part of their “Huluween” celebration on October 7th. The franchise is based on a 1986 Clive Barker novella called The Hellbound Heart that the writer then went on to script and direct as a film the following year. The film made $14 million worldwide and spawned nine sequels.
The new take on the franchise comes from director David Bruckner (The Night House) and tells of a young woman fighting addiction who comes across an ancient puzzle box, unaware of it’s true purpose of summoning a group of sadistic supernatural beings called the Cenobites. The cast for the film includes Odessa A’zion, Jamie Clayton, Adam Faison, Drew Starkey, Brandon Flynn, Aoife Hinds, Jason Liles, Yinka Olorunnife, Selina Lo, Zachary Hing, Kit Clarke, Goran Visnjic and Hiam Abbass.
