Goofs

When Terri tries to leave the hospital, Joey stops her and asks her about the boy with the chains attached to him. Terri is standing right in front of a pair of double doors while she is speaking. Joey is then distracted and hurries back to the room with the injured boy, and in the background we see Terri hesitate for a second, before starting to back up and go slightly through the double doors. But when the camera then does a close up on Terri, she is still standing hesitating in front of the doors and is a little further forward than she was before. She then backs up and exits through the doors again. See more »

What happened?
8 October 2001 | by (Somerset, MA) – See all my reviews

I'm not quite sure what happened to poor ol' Pinhead, but his character sure got an overhaul for this misfire of a film. He is transformed from his more mysterious visage into a gimmicky Freddy Krueger-type mass-murderer.

Once upon a time in the series, you had to open a puzzlebox searching for the secrets of pain and pleasure to be attacked by the Cenobites. But no more. Hell, all you have to do now is go to a nightclub and you're on the victims list. Sillyness abounds as the DJ becomes a CD throwing cenobite and a cameraman launches missiles (yes, missiles) from the lens buried in his head. Stupid.

Way off base when compared with the rest of the series, and not worth your time.
