Always been a fan of Hellraiser franchise, and I know they make terrible sequel;
But finally they made a decent one. I recommend a viewing if you into grotesque leviathan being movies.
Cenobite are interesting to see, the art people kept close to the vest to keeping it like the original while at the same time making their design uniquely their own. (Probably the choice of leather for outfits). They don’t look like recycles copies. Most have a female anatomy (wait until people complain about that, heh) which does have a more balance male/female/thing ratio in the works
Rules of the game is interesting too. Won’t spoil it.
Without knowing previous film, this movie give you all the details of the lore as if it could carry itself like an original.
Story is well paced, and very clear.
Main characters. They unfortunately suffer the same fate like all horror films, why bother to care for them.
They don’t push the bar. You seen it once, you seen it 11 times (yea their that many) but I don’t want to really push part. I think this is better than almost most of them. Some were killed off screen, but that’s Hulu for ya.
I like what I got, was very satisfied with the quality Hulu throws in. They did very well bring in fan favorite like Predator and add a little twist to the recipe to make it into Prey. Same idea with hellraser 2022, You get what you order, may taste different but it a pleasant meal either way.
Got watch it or not, you heard my thought.
