New Hellraiser Gets Official Emoji Celebrating Pinhead

Hulu is getting serious about promoting its next hellraiser movie, with a new trailer released today and a new emoji hitting Twitter, which appears when you use the #Hellraiser hashtag. The film stars Jamie Clayton as a new version of Pinhead, and will follow in the footsteps of the hugely popular Preythat revived the long flag Predator franchise. They’re also employing the recent trend of using the same title as the original, rather than adding a number or subtitle, even if it’s not an easy reboot. Actor Doug Bradley helped bring the iconic villain “Pinhead” to life in eight hellraiser films, but so far he has lent his support to the choice to bring in a new actor, and a woman, to succeed him in the role of the new film.

The original film was adapted from Clive Barker’s short story “The Hellbound Heart,” with Barker directing. With the first woman to play Pinhead joining the cast, much has been made of the fracture that the character’s description in that original story detailed slightly more feminine traits, with Clayton’s casting for the new film being more faithful to the source material. .

“Everything about hellraiser it’s always been offending,” original pinhead star Doug Bradley said during a recent appearance at the convention. “Everything, always, from start to finish. It’s not a new idea in that sense, but it intrigues me. I’m in the same position as the rest of you, I guess, to see where that goes.”
