Footage from Beyond Fest’s special screening of “Hellraiser,” a reinvention of Clive Barker’s 1987 horror classic from director David Bruckner debuting on October 7 in the U.S. exclusively on Hulu as part of the streamer’s annual “Huluween” celebration of fright-filled content. In attendance were “Hellraiser” cast members Odessa A’zion, Jamie Clayton, Adam Faison, Drew Starkey, Jason Liles and Selina Lo, along with Director Bruckner, Producer Marc Toberoff, Executive Producers Peter Oillataguerre and Todd Williams and Co-Producer Chris Stone. To the delight of everyone in the audience, there was also a surprise appearance by Clive Barker, who wrote and directed the original “Hellraiser” and is a producer of this film.
In the all-new “Hellraiser,” a young woman struggling with addiction comes into possession of an ancient puzzle box, unaware that its purpose is to summon the Cenobites, a group of sadistic supernatural beings from another dimension.
The ensemble cast includes Odessa A’zion (“Fam,” “Grand Army”), Jamie Clayton (“The L Word: Generation Q,” “Sense8”), Adam Faison (“Everything’s Gonna Be Okay,” “Yes Day”), Drew Starkey (“Outer Banks,” “The Devil All the Time”), Brandon Flynn (“Ratched,” “13 Reasons Why”), Aoife Hinds (“The Long Call,” “Normal People”), Jason Liles (“Stereoscope,” “Rampage”), Yinka Olorunnife (“The Transporter”), Selina Lo (“Boss Level,” “Q8 Unleashed”), Zachary Hing (“Halo”), Kit Clarke (“Leonardo”), with Goran Visnjic (“The Boys,” “Timeless”) and Hiam Abbass (“Succession,” “Blade Runner 2049”).
A Hulu Original, in association with Spyglass Media Group, the film reunites Director David Bruckner, Screenwriters Ben Collins & Luke Piotrowski, Writer/Producer David S. Goyer and Producer Keith Levine, all of whom were teamed on 2020’s “The Night House,” along with Producers Clive Barker and Marc Toberoff and Executive Producers Gary Barber, Peter Oillataguerre and Todd Williams. Chris Stone and Gracie Wheelan serve as co-producers.
