In a recent interview with Entertainment WeeklyBruckner noted that he became a fan of the 1987 film when he saw it as a teenager, which is why he wanted to become a filmmaker and after many years be the director of this reboot.

“It was a movie that really scared the hell out of me. She’s delving into things that are so disturbing that she was almost afraid of the people who created her! This is not a new version. I just didn’t think you could ever redo the original. It’s too much of its own and I think that would be dangerous territory for filmmakers because how do you get past that? This is a new story in the universe of hellraiser”, he indicated.
