Four years after ‘Hellraiser: Judgement’, the 11th film in the franchise had its first trailer revealed last week much to a lot of positive feedback.
‘Hellraiser’ serves as a reboot that sees new characters become victim to the demonic Pinhead and the Cenobites after completing a unique puzzle.
After being continuously being disappointed by the sequel’s, the reboot’s first trailer actually looks brilliant. While the previous instalments started to lean towards CGI to capture the grotesque imagery, this entry looks to be going back to its roots and implementing practical effects. And they look fantastic and gruesome.
Furthermore, Pinhead and the Cenobites look incredible. Instead of an organic, fleshy look, these demons have been given a new, almost mechanical design which also represents the new puzzle perfectly. And Pinhead is haunting! Portrayed by Jamie Clayton (Netflix’s Sense8), she’s made a fantastic first impression of her performance in the trailer and I cannot wait to see her full portrayal of the character when the film is released.
After being disappointed by the poor sequels, ‘Hellraiser’ looks fantastic. The decision to use practical effects was a good one and the new Pinhead and puzzle look incredible. Hopefully, the film is just as good as the trailer, because it’s made me very excited.
Hellraiser is an upcoming American supernatural horror film directed by David Bruckner, with a screenplay by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski, from a screen story they co-wrote with David S. Goyer. Intended to serve as a new adaptation of the 1986 novella The Hellbound Heart by Clive Barker, which served as the basis for Barker’s 1987 film Hellraiser, it is a reboot of the titular franchise and the eleventh installment overall. A co-production between Spyglass Media Group and Phantom Four Films, the film stars Odessa A’zion and Jamie Clayton as Riley and Pinhead, respectively. Brandon Flynn, Goran Višnjić, Drew Starkey, Adam Faison, Aoife Hinds, Selina Lo and Hiam Abbass also star in supporting roles.
