Cenobite Me

The First “Hellraiser” Trailer is Here and Holy Pinhead

In 1987, gay British auteur Clive Barker introduced the world to the Cenobites, a cult of pain-loving hotties who live in another dimension and will absolutely ruin your life if you mess around with a certain puzzle box. Needless to say, it was an instant classic that absolutely fed the gays for years. The iconic frontman of the Cenobites, Pinhead, remains a classic choice of Halloween attire and, if you’re Gottmik, the perfect drag showstopper.

It was such a stunning look that Gottmik even got called to audition to play the cult leader in a new reboot. But Mik isn’t the only trans icon who adores Pinhead, the genderqueer Cenobite who lives to see you die a horrible death. When news of a Hulu reboot of Hellraiser came about last year, a collective joyous scream was heard as we learned that “Sense8” actress Jamie Clayton was chosen to take Pinhead to the next level.

Today, we got a look at the series’ first trailer, and boy oh boy oh boy oh boy.

Naturally, the gays were excited, to put it mildly.

Are we still psyched to see it? Absolutely.

It’s all about Jamie.
