Earth has been silenced, and mankind eradicated by one final war. Now in the bowels of Hell, Pinhead - leader of the Cenobites - finds himself bored, tortured by his own immortality, and facing the fear that his own dark legion will eventually turn upon him. The only thing left to do? The last possible slice of sensation he can experience? To open the puzzle box himself.

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.

Editor Randolph K. Bricker was brought in by Joe Chappelle (who was Miramax's replacement for original director Kevin Yagher) to assemble a completely new cut of the film. This version was the one that was ultimately released in theaters in 1996. See more »
When the Lament Configuration shoots chains out at Sharpe, and the gateway opens, look at the box in the wide shot and you will see that there are no chains coming from it. See more »
[to Paul while looking at the Earth]
Glorious, is it not? The creatures who walk its surface, always looking to the light, never seeing the untold oceans of darkness beyond. There are more humans alive today than in all of its pitiful history. The Garden of Eden. A garden of flesh.

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 »
When a movie uses the name Alan Smithee instead of the real director, it doesn't mean he wishes to disassociate him/herself from the movie because it's bad. In fact, that CANNOT do that.
The only way a director can do it, is to prove that they no longer have creative direction over the film, due to one reason or another - usually political reasons within the film's money suppliers. Too much interference.
The change has to be approved by the Directors Guild of America (DGA) and Association of Motion Picture and Television Producers.
See the wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Smithee Now, this doesn't mean the movie is bad. In fact, it's possible that the original director was making such a bad movie that people had to intervene, and he/she didn't want to hear it. It's possible that the movie may have been much worse. Or better. We can't know.
