An insult

There comes a time when a story just needs to end. This can be due to a number of things. Either it's become too familiar, strayed too far from the source, or has stretched itself too thin. However, if there is still money to be made an end may be nowhere in sight. Dimension Films is known for milking franchises for all they're worth, especially Horror. Multiple sequels can kill a franchise, but not all of them are bad. The 'Hellraiser' series started on such a high and had it's ups and downs through seven more films. It appeared that it had finally died, but jump ahead a few years and we now have this embarrassment.

Pros: Story has potential. Actors do their best, especially Nick Eversman. Quite good effects.

Cons: Flat direction. Amateurish writing. Even at 70 minutes the pace drags. Repeats some things from the original, but less effectively. Way underdeveloped characters that you won't care about. Doug Bradley was wise to pass on this, but his replacement is terrible. Generic score. You remember very little of this by the end credits. Plot holes a plenty.

Final thoughts: It is no secret that the only reason this was made was so Dimension could retain the remake rights. That doesn't mean this film had to be bad, but it certainly is. I couldn't wait for this waste of film to be over. It's like a fan made 'Hellraiser' sequel shot with real film cameras. Like they say, "A polished turd is still a turd."

My rating: 1/5

Prequel to the next suck

This was terrible. I just spoke to Doug Bradley when he was at Crypticon who had been offered the script. He said it was the worst piece of crap that he'd ever read. So he passed.

His exact words were that when he had spoken to Weinstein Entertainment about it and how terrible it was. They said "We don't give a crap at how terrible this movie will be. We need one more in the can to secure the franchise for the reboot".

Needless to say, because if his ridicule of the whole idea, the reboot of Hellraiser was not offered to Doug Bradley, which is too bad.

It is also rumored that it will be PG13. This movie will fail even worse that this one did.

FYI, straight from Doug's mouth, Clive Barker is NOT in support of this remake anymore. This franchise is officially dead now.

Thumbs down.

Disappointing

This had so much potential. A decent plot, great make up and special effects, and a solid twist ending were all tossed aside with how terrible the acting was.

It was very reminiscent of the first Hellraiser, even going as far as quoting it several times and reenacting several scenes. My biggest concern was Doug Bradley not playing Pinhead; however, Stephan Smith Collins was overall bearable even if he was just mimicking Doug Bradley's performance.

Despite all the potential, not a single actor/actress from the main cast gave a solid, consistent performance.
