The director David Bruckner was asked if he considers Hellraiser canon for the franchise, and also explained the absence of a subtitle.

“Hellraiser sounded better than Hellraiser 11. It didn’t seem appropriate to put a subtitle this time.”

Said in an interview with io9.

“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 this. 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.”

In Brazil, Hellraiser should arrive in the Star+ catalog on October 7th.

The film brings Jamie Clayton in the iconic role of Pinhead and promises to bring a new look at the franchise.

In the 1987 production, the audience is introduced to a mysterious box, the Lament Configuration, which opens a door to a horrible world where the Cenobites, mutilated beings dedicated to torture and led by the one known as Pinhead, live.

The film quickly achieved cult status, spawning a franchise that would span ten films, comics, and other products.
