Hulu’s upcoming Hellraiser is intriguing as hell. The talent attached to the thing is very promising. David Bruckner has been on my faves list going all the way back to The Signal. He has just kept on going with the goods. The Night House and The Ritual were both outstanding and genuinely creepy. So, who better to handle a Hellraiser reboot. A Hellraiser that is “jaw-dropping” according to producer, David S. Goyer.
“I will say that we went back to the original novella for the source material, we’re really honoring Clive’s work. I can say that David Bruckner is a genius. It’s filming right now. The footage is terrifying and amazing, and the Cenobites are jaw-dropping.” Goyer told Collider.
I love that Bruckner is taking the material seriously. The idea that he is going back to Clive Barker’s The Hellbound Heart is fantastic news and exactly what a fan needs to hear.
The first two Hellraiser films were outstanding and are fucked up and menacing to this day. So, this has a lot to live up to. Filming is currently underway in Serbia with an aim for a 2022 release on Hulu.
