David Brucknerdirector of the new ‘Hellraiser‘, was asked if he considers his film canon for the franchise – he even explained the absence of a subtitle or even number.
“Hellraiser sounded better than Hellraiser 11. It didn’t seem appropriate to put a subtitle this time”said Bruckner to io9.
which continued: “I see it as a reimagining, in some capacity. I think it fits the world of Hellraiser, what people have seen before. I wouldn’t say it’s absolutely strict with the canon. Once again, we let our imaginations run with it.”.
“Movies are dreams and sometimes feature weird iterations of each other. So we should just embrace it. My suggestion for fans is to watch it not thinking about exactly where it fits into the franchise’s history. Just enjoy the experience”concludes.
