“It’s the tale of a young woman, who’s struggling with addiction and compulsive behavior, that comes in contact accidentally with the box and unfortunately begins to dabble with it,” says Bruckner. “And chaos ensues.”

In Bruckner’s Hellraiser, Pinhead is played by Jamie Clayton, a trans woman. “We knew we wanted Pinhead to be a woman. Jamie was just the right person for the role. A person’s identity can be really exciting for a role in many ways, but I have to emphasize that Jamie absolutely killed, that’s how we got there.”

There is also a new Cenobite. “We call him The Masque,” says the director. “The Masque is one of my favorite Cenobites and it’s just a tease of really what’s to come as far as the Cenobites are concerned.”

Hellraiser streams October 7 on Hulu.
