Steve Michael Martin,
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 full shot view of the car sinking at the beginning of the film, it is clearly raining, as rain drops are seen on the surface of the water. All other shots and scenes show no rain at all. 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.)
