Hellraiser(2022) Release Date & Time, Trailer, Cast, and Online Availability! 

Hellraiser, the popular horror film, returns to our screens in a reboot-slash-sequel.

Clive Barker’s Hellraiser saga is one of horror’s longest-running franchises. Hellraiser, which was adapted and directed by the author himself from his own novella, “The Hellbound Heart,” in 1987, quickly became a genre staple.

In a genre dominated by slashers and serial killers, the story of the Cenobites and their merciless exploration of the boundaries of pleasure and pain stood out. For good reason, the central antagonist, Pinhead, became one of the most instantly recognizable villains in horror film history.

Studios have tried and failed numerous times to remake or reboot the Hellraiser saga. However, just in time for Halloween, Hulu is resurrecting the Cenobites with director David Bruckner in the R-rated Hellraiser this fall (the same title as the very first film in the series.) Both horror veterans and newcomers should brace themselves for an all-new descent into hell.


Hellraiser’s Release Date & Time

Hellraiser premiered in theatres on September 28 at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas, and on October 4 at Beyond Fest in Santa Monica, California. On Friday, October 7, 2022, the film will be released on Hulu.

Who is Part of the Hellraiser Cast?

Hellraiser stars Odessa A’zion (Family) as Riley, with Jamie Clayton (Sense8) taking over the iconic pinned helm as the new female Hell Priest (aka Pinhead). Aside from the recognizable Hiam Abbass from Succession, the Hulu original cast includes Yinka Olorunnife, Jason Liles, and Selina Lo as other Cenobites, as well as Goran Vinji (ER), Drew Starkey (Outer Banks), Adam Faison, Brandon Flynn (13 Reasons Why), and Aoife Hinds.


What is the Storyline of Hellraiser?

Riley McKendry, a young addict in recovery, stumbles upon The Lament Configuration, an ancient puzzle box. What she doesn’t realize is that by fiddling with the box, she summons the Cenobites, a cult of supernatural sadomasochists from another dimension who prey on human desire by inflicting a combination of pain and pleasure.

Expect expanded Hellraiser lore, themes of sexual pleasure and pain, and — you guessed it — plenty of gore and body horror in this resurrection (not the remake) of the horror classic.

Hellraiser Trailer

Following the release of a teaser for the new Hellraiser, an official trailer has been released, providing fans with the best look at the horror franchise’s reboot. Following a brief explanation of the puzzle box that unleashes the Cenobites, the trailer gives fans their first glimpse of the demons from another dimension, including Jamie Clayton’s Pinhead. Watch the trailer (along with the previous teaser) directly below:


Will There Be a Hellraiser Sequel?

No further films in the Hellraiser franchise have been announced, but if the Hulu original does well, the streaming service may request a sequel. Interestingly, a completely unrelated Hellraiser TV series for HBO Max is currently in development, with David Gordon Green and Danny McBride, who worked on the successful Halloween (2018) reboot, attached to the project. It is still unknown whether or not this will happen. Until then, you can watch the latest iteration, which was released just in time for Halloween.

Director of Hellraiser?

This Hellraiser remake is being directed by David Bruckner. Bruckner, a horror filmmaker at heart, made his solo directorial feature debut in 2017 with The Ritual, an adaptation of Adam Nevill’s novel about five friends whose hiking trip in Northern Sweden goes horribly wrong.

Prior to that, he co-directed The Signal with Dan Bush and Jacob Gentry in 2007, about a world in which people become murderous due to a mysterious signal sent through their electrical devices. He also contributed to the V/H/S anthology series. His critical acclaim peaked in 2020 with The Night House, a psychological horror film that received two Critics’ Choice Super Awards.
