You might not recognize "Sense8" star Jamie Clayton in the terrifying new trailer for Hulu's "Hellraiser" reboot, but it's her and she looks devilishly delightful.

 

As reported by Variety, the official trailer for the film shows Clayton as the titular Pinhead raising havoc in the life of a young woman named Riley, played by Odessa A'zion.

 

The trailer shows Riley, a struggling addict, stumbling upon an ancient puzzle box that summons Cenobites, supernatural beings that come to Earth to raise hell. Hence the title of the film, "Hellraiser."

 

The film is an adaptation of a 1986 Clive Barker novella called "The Hellhound Heart." In the 1987 film, Doug Bradley played Pinhead, the leader of the Cenobites, and launched numerous films as the character.

 

Stepping into Bradley's role, Jamie Clayton gave a sneak peek of her full Pinhead look earlier this month and fans of the original franchise began gagging with excitement.

The film hits Hulu on Oct. 7. Also included in the film's cast is Brandon Flynn, Goran Višnjińá, Drew Starkey, Adam Faison, Aoife Hinds, Selina Lo and Hiam Abbass.
