Like Hellraiser: Hellseeker (2002) after it, "Inferno" was originally a non-Hellraiser related horror script owned by Dimension. To save money on writing a completely original Hellraiser story, the script was quickly edited to insert the Pinhead and the Cenobites. See more »
When Detective Thorne first finds the box at a murder scene, there is a candle on top containing a child's finger. Later in the movie it is revealed to be his own finger as a child and that he is trapped in hell. However, at the time the initial finger is found, he has not yet opened the box and therefore has not yet condemned himself to hell. See more »
Hellraiser Inferno was a great movie. The acting could have been better, but it took a completely different turn than I expected it to.
Pinhead is what he was in the first two Hellraisers, A judge of Hell. If you notice Hellraiser 3 and Bloodline make him the bad guy, while in the first two movies it was the humans who were the evil ones.
This movie requires you to THINK. If you don't like having to think about a movie don't watch it, but if you liked the Blair Witch Project, You will like this movie.
This sequel brings back the style of the first two, but with enough difference to shock you in new ways. I believe this movie gets the point across that I think Clive Barker was trying to get across when he started this series, You create your own Hell, and you confront your own demons.
This movie is not like the rest of the series. It is more of a psychological terror than a slasher film. Give this movie a chance, and think about it.
