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 waiting to turn left at the intersection in front of the cops, a closeup of the car's speedometer console shows no illumination, yet the car's headlights are on. See more »
cast: Craig Sheffer, Nicholas Turturro, James Remar, Doug Bradley, Noelle Evans.
plot: Crooked cop, Joseph Thorne (Craig Sheffer) lies cheats and steals. One night, he opens the lament configuration and is trapped in a world which forces him to wonder if he is after a serial killer or trapped in hell.
the good: This is a fresh sequel after HELL ON EARTH and BLOODLINE. While the last two was this good vs. evil thing, this one is the struggle between a man's good side and his bad side.
The idea of a man forcing to face all of the sins he has committed throughout his life and him wishing he did not make these mistakes sort of hit home, and there's some great gore and violence to go along with it.
Also, people complained that there was too much Pinhead in 3 and 4, and then that he has such a little part here. I think it makes his presence much better. He had just a little more screen time in 1 and 2.
