In addition to having obtained the first look in image at the protagonist Jamie Clayton (Sense8, The L Word: Generation Q) fully characterized as Pinhead!, the new installment of the cult classic Hellraiser from the director David Bruckner and the co-writers Ben Collins y Luke Piotrowskioffers us another sneak peek.
This time it’s about the first image of Lament Configuration (Lament Configuration puzzle box) that we can see in the Hulu Original movie of Hulu and Gary Barber’s Spyglass Media Group. You can find the promotional image at the end of the note (via Hulu).
The premiere of this new installment was set for on October 7, 2022 on Hulu.
In a recent interview, Bruckner shared the following about the film:
“This is not a remake. I just didn’t think you could ever remake the original Hellraiser. It’s too much of its own and I think that would be dangerous territory for filmmakers, because how do you get past that?”
“This is a new story in the Hellraiser universe.”
“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.”
The MPA (Motion Picture Association) awarded him the R Rating by: “Heavy bloody horror violence and gore, language throughout, some sexual content, and brief graphic nudity.”
