To my fellow Hellraiser fans, and fans of Pinhead and the Cenobites:

The new Hellraiser on HULU is worth the watch and I THOROUGHLY enjoyed it. I reccomend.

I know it is likely complicated and would be a bit of a reach, but it would be so cool if we got new cosmetics from this movie.

What do you all think? Did you like it? Will you watch it?

    I loved the design of the cenobites and thought it looked great. Basically everything to do with the cenobites I really enjoyed. There were some really creepy scenes and gore throughout.

    I did not care for the plot or the characters after the first half hour or so tbh.

    I'd love to see some new skins based on this!

    I loved it. I posted my thoughts on it in Off-Topic. I watched it the day it came out cause I was so excited for it and the movie did not disappoint

    Another Hulu produced sequel that was an unexpectedly great revival of a tired franchise and should have gotten a theatrical release (Prey earlier this year is another).

    The movie has so much positive reviews, I'll definitely watch it.

    Yes!! I'm a hardcore fan of the originals as well as Clive Barker's Hellbound Heart novella and the Hellraiser comics. I absolutely love this new film!!

    I think the cenobite design was good, but they didn't seem as menacing. Main character was super annoying. Characters in general I didn't really care much for.

    Too many wide/distant shots especially of cenobites, lacked claustrophobic feeling of the first two films. Too much box CGI. And sadly the actress playing Hell Priest had none of the screen presence of Doug Bradley.

    I would consider a skin but the voice lines would need to be redone. I hated the generic "demon" processing on her voice. I'd prefer the female cenobite skin from Hellraiser II.

    i watched the Interview with Cote and i thought it was clear there would be no new skin for pinhead.

    If what "The king" said is right the possibility for more Hellraiser skins is a "no"

    I've been avoiding it incase it sucks. Seems like that might not be the case?

    It doesn't suck, but I wouldn't have too high expectation either.

    I hope they also release these movies "normal".

    A lot of interesting ones are scattered on too many different streaming platforms.
