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

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.

Why not?

Every review of this movie has ripped it to shreds. Some reviews were fair, however. I'm one of these people who looks deeper into what he sees before him rather than the surface. While it is true that this film is by no means a masterpiece, it certainly isn't the biggest cinematic monstrosity of all time ("Children of the Living Dead" owns that title).

First off: Doug Bradley's absence. I'm a huge Doug Bradley/Pinhead fan, and there will never be anyone to play Pinhead better, but you have to look at what the new guy was up against. Very short shooting schedule and immediate fan ridicule pretty much doomed this poor guy. Overall, I felt he did a decent job with what he was given.

Second: special effects. Come on people, it's a direct-to-DVD movie. Are we looking for 'Star Wars' visuals here? Honestly, I felt the effects here were a bit better than they should have been.

Seriously, if you're a fan of this series, leave high expectations at the door and just give it an honest chance. You never know, you might end up liking it.
