Trans actor Jamie Clayton has been cast as Pinhead in an upcoming remake of the very camp, very queer horror classic Hellraiser – and fans are overjoyed.
Hellraiser quickly became a cult horror classic when it was released in 1987. The film revolves around Pinhead, the leader of a group of sado-masochistic beings who are unable to differentiate between pain and pleasure.
Now, Hellraiser is getting the reboot treatment. The new version of the film will debut on Hulu and will see Sense8 star Jamie Clayton taking on the legendary role of Pinhead.
