Steve Michael Martin,
A shady businessman attempts to piece together the details of the car crash that killed his wife and rendered him an amnesiac-- and left him in possession of a sinister puzzle box that summons monsters.
It's the year 2127. Pinhead, the evil cenobite of the series, has found himself on board a space station in outer space, run by scientist Dr.Merchant. Dr. Merchant's mission is to close the gates to hell forever. Because his ancestor, a toymaker in the 18th century, built the evil puzzlebox that opens the gates to hell. And through the generations, the family of the bloodline has tried to stop it. But now, Dr.Merchant has built the reverse box. The box that will close the gates to hell instead of opening it. Written by
Was intended to be the final installment of the "Hellraiser" franchise, ending with Pinhead destroyed once and for all. 5 direct-to-video sequels followed. See more »
After the chain goes through Merchant's throat, in the shot where the blades open up, the wires used to open the blades are visible. Just before the chain is pulled back there is another shot of the blades and the wires are gone. See more »
Young... unformed... oh, what appetites I could teach him.
Just give him to me, please!

Just tell me what you want!
Oh, I want bait... live bait...

The end credits have the "Filmed in Panavision" moniker, suggesting the film was shot in cinema-scope (2.35:1), however the film was shot in flat (1.85:1) ratio. The end credit was more than likely meant to read "Filmed with Panavision cameras and lenses". See more »
Yes, all lame horror franchises eventually go to space to die, where they re-enact the second Aliens Movie.
the plot line here is that an eccentric scientist has hijacked a space station of his own design, and relates to the authorities that in fact, his ancestor created the puzzle box that releases the Cenobites, and that they have spent the last few hundred years tormenting his family.
There are three stories within the movie, on in 18th century France, another in Modern America, and the last in space. In this film, Doug Bradley's character of Pinhead starts to take an increasingly subordinate role. (He doesn't actually appear until the second modern story, which is probably accurate, since he was a WWI human before becoming a demon.)
Instead, the focus is on a female demon named Angelique, who inhabits the body of a dead prostitute after a foolish nobleman releases her. Except halfway through the movie, she is forgotten and we have the Scientist trapping Pinhead in a dimension where he can only phone it in for the Direct to DVD sequels.
