Hellraiser Reboot Announces Date, Teases New Pinhead Look

With the recent success Hulu had bringing back a Predator, it’s time for them to bring back another iconic creature. The streamer’s Hellraiser reboot finally has a release date of October 7. It’s all part of “Huluween,” the annual celebration of all things horror. To make the announcement, the streamer released a short video that uses a Zoetrope-style effect to reveal the first tease of the new Pinhead look. Jamie Clayton will play the master Cenobite, now depicted as female for the first time in live-action.
