HELLRAISER: Here's What Critics Are Saying In The First Social Media Reactions To Hulu's Horror Reboot

Critics have weighed in with their social media reactions to Hulu's upcoming Hellraiser reboot, and the consensus appears to be that this is a definite return to form for the long-running horror franchise.

The social media embargo for Hulu's upcoming Hellraiser reboot was recently lifted and it looks like the movie is receiving widespread critical acclaim thus far. 

There had been some concern that the franchise, which has been running on fumes for a very long time, might struggle to resonate with horror fans. Instead, it sounds like this is a pitch-perfect take on the property that restores it to its former glory after more than a few underwhelming entries over the years. Oh, and the Cenobites? They sound utterly terrifying. 

Hulu is proving to be a great place for some of the properties that Disney inherited from 20th Century Fox during the Disney/Fox merger as Prey (a reboot of the Predator series) was also a huge hit. We're still waiting for news on a sequel to that, of course. 

Hellraiser, a reimagining of Clive Barker’s 1987 horror classic from director David Bruckner, debuts exclusively on Hulu on October 7 as part of the streamer's annual "Huluween" celebration of fright-filled content. 

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.
