Dimension films placed the cast and crew under a gag order, hindering Rick Bota's opportunity to promote the film when Fangoria magazine attempted to do a cover story on the film. Star Ashley Laurence, however, broke the gag order to speak about the film, claiming that she had only been paid enough money to make a payment towards a new refrigerator. See more »

This series, once again, has gone exactly where I would have expected it to go. Instead of pulling off another Freddie or Jason epic, they delve again into the psyche of what mean to be truly evil. Unlike Highlander II (1991), this movie has not fallen to the bean-counters. I personally believe that the expansion on the characters from Hellraiser V and VI have done nothing but good. They could have gone the road of Friday the 13th or Nightmare on Elm Street but that's been done to death. Seeing the ending reminds of how much I enjoyed the first movie. A good psychological thriller. I only hope that Rick Bota continues with his work (Clive seems to approve after hooking up with McFarlane.)
