Did You Know?

Trivia:
The initial 1-sheet artwork featured a side shot of Pinhead's screaming face. The MPAA said the artwork was too intense and asked that Pinhead be removed from the poster campaign. Miramax instead decided to use a composite photo of Pinhead from the original Hellraiser 1-sheet and successfully argued that it was suitable as it had already been used in the past. The MPAA relented and allowed this new poster art to be used.See more »
Goofs:
Plot holes: Pinhead cannot touch the puzzle box but has no problems doing this in the previous films.See more »
Quotes:
[first lines]
Bum:[referring to the Pillar of Souls] You want it?
J.P. Monroe:[laughs] Is it yours?
Bum:No. Not mine. Yours.
J.P. Monroe:How much you want for it?
Bum:Whatever you think it's worth.
[receives money]
Bum:Exactly the figure I had in mind. Take pleasure in it.

Passable Sequel In the Long Running Series, 16 October 2014
Author: Nancy_Grease from Canada

Hellraiser: Hell on Earth stars Terry Farrell as a young television reporter investigating a horrific murder where the victim appears to have been torn apart by hooks and chains somehow connected to a strange puzzle box discovered near the body. The clues lead to a prostitute and a sleazy nightclub owner who's latest art installation is a remnant of the cenobite dimension left behind on our world which contains the blackened soul of Pinhead. Hellraiser II director Tony Randel co-wrote the screenplay for Hell on Earth and he tries to pack a bit too much into the film. The climactic chase through the city streets with pyrotechnics and special effects exploding all around feels forced, like much of the action here. It's dictated by the unwieldly script rather than flowing natuaraly. If you like the first two Hellraiser films you'll want to see Hell on Earth and you may even enjoy it.
