Horror fans rejoice, you can almost watch Hellraiser (2022) online on Hulu. This reboot of the iconic (and often a bit grotesque) horror franchise looks like it should provoke a lot of conversation. Judging off the trailers alone, this chapter looks to be a more straightforward version of the complex series.

Hellraiser (2022) release date and time

Hellraiser comes out Friday (October 7) at 12 a.m. ET on Hulu (opens in new tab).

Whether that change (if we're correct) is for good or for bad is to be seen, but it certainly worked for David Gordon Green's Halloween movies, which erased many movies' worth of complication for a more straightforward version of the story of Michael Myers.

In Hellraiser, the iconic violent puzzle box known as The Lament Configuration is back, and it's already in the wrong hands. As you'll see below, Mr. Voight (Goran Višnjić) is already tempting unwitting people into unlocking the box that is tied to the Cenobites. 

Speaking of Cenobites, this new Hellraiser features a new female Pinhead (Jamie Clayton) leading the group of grotesque sadists who prey on human desire. And it seems like an addict name Riley (Odessa A'zion) is the latest prey in their targets.
