A shady businessman attempts to piece together the details of the car crash that killed his wife and rendered him an amnesiac-- and left him in possession of a sinister puzzle box that summons monsters.
Earth has been silenced and mankind eradicated by one final war. Now in the bowels of Hell Pinhead, Leader of the Cenobites finds himself bored, tortured by his own immortality and facing the fear that his own dark legion will eventually turn upon him. The only thing left to do?..the last possible slice of sensation he can experience?...to open the puzzle box himself.

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.

Both times Trevor reads the sheet of paper with Sage's address, it says #202. When he enters her place about an hour and 4 minutes into the movie, "206" is on her door. See more »
Rick Bota's "Hellraiser:Hellseeker" is a straight-to-video horror film that offers plenty of morbid atmosphere.Kirsty Cotton(Ashely Laurence)is married to Trevor(Dean Winters).This guy knows very little about Kirsty's past.He also sees really strange things and is slowly losing contact with reality."Hellraiser:Hellseeker" is easily among the best three "Hellraiser" films.It's surpassed only by the first two films.Unfortunately there is only a little bit of gore,so splatter freaks will be disappointed.In many ways "Hellraiser:Hellseeker" has a similar look and feel to "Hellraiser:Inferno",in which we find ourselves watching a stark reality that is very much our own.Of course there is also the matter of Pinhead,the Cenobites and the famous puzzle box.However they only make a token appearance toward the movie's end.Still this film is quite good,so if you're a fan of "Hellraiser" movies give it a look.8 out of 10.
