Kirsty Cotten is now grown up and married to Trevor Gooden. Her memory of the events that took place back at her parent's home and the mental institution have dimmed, but she is still traumatized. One fateful day, the two get into a fatal car crash, killing Kirsty. Now, Trevor finds himself in a strange world full of sexy women, greed and murder, making him believe he may be in hell. He follows the clues all the way to Pinhead. Written by
Like Hellraiser: Inferno (2000) before it, "Hellseeker" 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 Cenobites and references to Kirsty's past with them. A scene written specifically to try and bring the largely unrelated plot in line with the canon of the first two Hellraiser films was subsequently cut, but is available on the DVD as a special feature.

During the opening scene, two ramps are visible when the car swerves off the side of the overpass. See more »
First off, don't listen to any of these supposed Hellraiser fans that don't truely understand what the series is about. You hear so many complaints about the movie being slow, not showing enough Pinhead, yank yank... Does anyone remember the first movie? It was slow, virtually plotless, and really didn't have much Pinhead.
It just doesn't makes sense to me why so many people bash the newer Hellraiser flicks when the only bad ones were 3 and 5. Everything else has had a decent story.
On par acting, on par story, and still the same amount of Pinhead you've come to expect... This one should please any true fan of Hellraiser simply because it follows the ideals of the first movie well enough. Slow moving pace, interesting plot twists, and general confusion until close to the end kept me interested. Definitely not for everyone, but if you dig Hellraiser you'll dig this.
