Did You Know?


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 »


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 »


Chief Surgeon: What have we got here?
[pulls an eel out of Trevor's throat with tweezers]
Chief Surgeon: And we have a winner. OK, zip it up, we'll finish at the morgue.
Dr. Allison: Wait, wait.
[to Trevor]
Dr. Allison: Sorry I had to leave you like that for a minute, Trev. I'm back. Can you hear me, Trevor?
Chief Surgeon: [disgusted] Jesus, Allison, what possesses you to talk to cadavers?
Dr. Allison: What if there's no afterlife? Wouldn't you want someone to talk to you like a normal human being one last time?
[touches Trevor's hair]
Chief Surgeon: You're creeping me out and I'm the coroner.

Good Flick
19 June 2004 | by (Omaha, Nebraska) – See all my reviews

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.
