Odessa A’Zion has joined the new Hellraiser reboot in the lead role.

The horror genre is making a major comeback as blockbusters return to theaters, bringing another spike in scary movies that has been trending upward for most of the past decade. With movies like the two recent Andy Mushchietti’s It films and John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place duology gaining worldwide popularity, horror movies are claiming their place in the fray of huge Hollywood hits.

The film world is going to get its cut of horror projects soon, which will be highlighted by the upcoming Hellraiser reboot. With 35 years and 10 movies’ worth of history to date, author Clive Barker’s cult classic will see a new story emerge in a rebooted version of the long-standing horror franchise.
