“Hellraiser,” a new take on the terrifying horror franchise, premieres October 7 on Hulu. The reboot of Clive Barker’s classic film presents a reimagining of Pinhead, the sadistic otherworldly being with nails sticking out of their face.

In “Hellraiser,” a young woman accidentally unleashes a massacre when she solves an ancient puzzle box that releases the Cenobites, a group of tormented supernatural entities. The woman must find a way to put them back in the box before she becomes the victim of their excruciating reign of terror.
