Average sequel with some flair left, 10 March 2001
Author: Scott Murray (Django-21) from Scotland

This is an ok and entertaining movie. Still I would have preferred another Kirsty adventure to explore the various concepts and ideas of Hellraiser 2 in more detail. The original two Hellraiser movies had more creative input from Clive Barker and also had a more British gothic feel. This americanised approach to sequelitis gives us the usual yawn inducing jokes, lots of explosions and special effects overdrive that made the horror sequel (and most of the originals) so archaic and at times plain embarrasing in the late eighties and early nineties. However Hellraiser 3 still has a lot more to offer viewers looking for something darker or more thought provoking tan the average stalk 'n' slash sequel. The nightclub owner, JP Monroe (character name) is a selfish hedonistic male slut who has sex with women and then doesn't want to know them. But he is shocked initially, when he sees the fate of his latest conquest at the hands of Pinhead (still in statue form from the end of Hellraiser 2). This

makes his agreeing to procure more victims for Pinhead even more evil and it's good to see some sort of layering of evil at work. Deep Space Nine's Terry Farrel is hardly in the Heather Langenkamp or Ashley Laurence school of intelligent and resourceful heroines but she is more than a few steps up from the Denise Richards school of bimbos. Character Terri (Paula Marshall) is pretty pathetic at times, but as she's probably been under the influence of creeps like JP Monroe her whole life, it is possible to sympathise to an extent and there is a nice twist to her victim role, when it's her time to feed Pinhead. Once Pinhead is freed from the statue there is some fun to be had with the nightclub massacre, the creation of new cenobites and the pursuit of Joey (Terry Farrel) who has what Pinhead needs but can't just take. The original Hellraiser score is as effective as ever and helps inject some mood into the early parts of the film and it also subtly foretells Terri's expected demise. Ultimately however, Pinhead has been reduced to camp bogeyman and to some extent it is your usual Hollywood gore sequel, but there is enough of a sombre tone carried over from the earlier Hellraiser movies to raise it above some of the garbage that horror fans were being fed at the time. And at least it does develop (if not totally satisfactorily) the human origin of Pinhead from the previous sequel. I'd say 3 out of 5.
