Hulu and Spyglass Media have shared a sneak peek of Jamie Clayton as Pinhead in the upcoming Hellraiser reboot.
Back in October, Deadline confirmed that The L Word: Generation Q actress would be leading the horror film alongside Odessa A’zion, Brandon Flynn, Goran Visnjic, Drew Starkey, Adam Faison, Aoife Hinds, Selina Lo and Hiam Abbass.
The report also revealed that the project had already wrapped filming and secured Clive Barker – author of the Hellraiser novels and writer/director of the original film – as one of its producers.
“Next year marks the 35th anniversary since Hellraiser first haunted our dreams. It’s only fitting to come full circle in collaborating with Clive, the original creator and master of visionary horror,” said Peter Oillataguerre, President of Production for Spyglass.
“We look forward to working with our partners at Hulu in bringing this unique take on the original to new audiences.”
The film, which David Bruckner directs, is set to follow a young woman struggling with addiction who stumbles across the iconic puzzle box. Like the original film, the mysterious item summons the horrifying extra-dimensional Cenobites.

Since the casting announcement, Clayton has shared small behind the scene’s tidbits from the movie via social media – including a selfie with the aforementioned puzzle box and a video of the make-up team creating her Pinhead mould.
However on 25 August, Hulu finally released a brief glimpse of Clayton in her forthcoming role during a new teaser for the film.
In the 15-second clip, sinister music can be heard playing in the background as the film’s title scrolls across the screen.
Amidst the red lettering, Clayton’s pin-faced character can be seen in the background staring menacingly into the camera.
While the teaser refrained from giving too much away, it did reveal that it would premiere on 7 October via Hulu – just in time for spooky season.
The original Hellraiser film, released in 1987, starred Doug Bradley as Pinhead. Although the film wasn’t a smash hit at the box office, it has since been recognised as a cult classic in the horror genre. Nine sequels followed, the first seven of which saw Bradley return as the character.
