Hellraiser is a 2022 American supernatural horror film directed by David Bruckner, with a screenplay by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski, from a screen story they co-wrote with David S. Goyer. Intended to serve as a new adaptation of the 1986 novella The Hellbound Heart by Clive Barker, which served as the basis for Barker's 1987 film Hellraiser, it is a reboot of the titular franchise and the eleventh installment overall. A co-production between Spyglass Media Group and Phantom Four Films, the film stars Odessa A'zion and Jamie Clayton as Riley and Pinhead, respectively. Brandon Flynn, Goran Višnjić, Drew Starkey, Adam Faison, Aoife Hinds, Selina Lo and Hiam Abbass also star in supporting roles.
Plans for a Hellraiser remake commenced in October 2007, with Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury confirmed they would be directing the project, with Barker producing and Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton would write the script. After Maury and Bustillo left the project, Dimension Films announced that Todd Farmer and Patrick Lussier would be taking on this project, with production slated for the new year ahead of a late 2011, early 2012 release. However, following the release of Hellraiser: Revelations to secure continuing rights, Farmer confirmed that he and Lussier are no longer involved. By 2018, after the critical and commercial success of Halloween, Miramax Films had confirmed plans for new Hellraiser installments, including a prequel and a reboot. The film was green-lit in early 2019, with Bruckner directing it from a script written by Collins and Piotrowski that will adhere more closely to the source material than the original film. Filming took place from September to October 2021.
Hellraiser premiered at Fantastic Fest on September 28, 2022. The film is scheduled to be released by Disney Platform Distribution via streaming exclusively on Hulu as a Hulu original film on October 7.
