The Hellraiser remake has been summoned by Hulu. The streaming service just scooped up the Spyglass Media pic, which will be helmed by The Night House director David Bruckner. The film will be yet another adaptation of Clive Barker’s The Hellbound Heart, which Barker adapted himself into the 1987 film Hellraiser. The story involves Cenobites, demonic S&M lovers who can be summoned to our world via a puzzle box known as the Lemarchand Configuration.

It’s been a surprisingly busy year for Hellraiser news (perhaps because we’re all trapped in hell). There’s a Hellraiser TV series in the works at HBO, with Halloween director David Gordon Green at the helm. And then there’s a Hellraiser reboot from filmmaker David Bruckner (The Night House). And now here’s perhaps the biggest Hellraiser news of all: the American rights to the franchise are now back in the hands of original creator Clive Barker.

The Hellraiser TV series is bringing back a familiar face, and I don’t mean Pinhead. Clive Barker, the original Hellraiser filmmaker and creator, is now on board as an executive producer for the HBO Hellraiser TV series being directed by David Gordon Green (Halloween). And it sounds like Barker will have actual involvement with the project and not just an honorary producer credit.

We’re celebrating Halloween by giving away a bundle of Blu-ray and 4K horror movies. One lucky winner will score the discs, which include a Hellraiser 4 movie collection Blu-ray, a Stephen King 5 movie collection Blu-ray, the 4K release of Shutter Island, The Haunting on Blu-ray, and more. You could say it’s a spooktacular deal! But you shouldn’t, because you would sound silly.

Pinhead is about to be very busy. Not only is there a Hellraiser movie reboot in the works, there’s also now a Hellraiser TV series in the works at HBO. The series will be an “elevated continuation and expansion of the well-established Hellraiser mythology,” and Halloween director David Gordon Green is set to direct the pilot and several episodes.

That Hellraiser reboot is still happening, and it has found its director. Last year, word broke that David S. Goyer was writing and producing a new take on Clive Barker’s horror classic, and now the project has attached David Bruckner to helm. Bruckner directed segments in horror anthology films V/H/S and Southbound, as well as the Netflix title The Ritual, and the upcoming The Night House.

Word recently broke that a Hellraiser remake was on the way from David S. Goyer. But that’s not the only plan for Pinhead and his pain-loving pals. There’s also a Hellraiser TV series in the works. Details are vague at the moment, but the plan is to either build on the mythology from the films and create either an anthology series, or a more traditional show with an ongoing narrative. That could work, but I have one pressing question: will the DJ cenobite who shoots killer CDs be featured?

David S. Goyer has such sights to show you. Like a Hellraiser remake. The Batman Begins screenwriter will write and produce a remake of Clive Barker‘s horror classic, marking the end of a very long journey to reboot the gore-drenched franchise. Barker’s original, released in 1987, centered on a puzzle box with the power to unleash demonic deviants from another dimension. It would go on to spawn many sequels, most of which were downright terrible.
