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 »

not too bad, why doesn't this series attract more viewers like other horror series do?
It had been some time since I'd seen the first two Hellraisers, and possibly the third, and I hadn't seen any of the other sequels. It seems like a lot of genre fans have overlooked these sequels as well, for whatever reason, while the Friday the 13th, Halloween, and Nightmare on Elm Street sequels still seem to attract a fair amount of attention.
Local video stores have been selling off most of their videotapes cheaply, so I took advantage of this fact to pick up several of the Hellraiser sequels.
I enjoyed this one. It does feature relatively little of the cenobites, which no doubt may irritate many (though not as much as if they were absent entirely!). The storyline in this one largely revolves around the questions: what happened? and what is real?
I could see possibly picking up the series on DVD at the right price and watching them all through again. I'm disappointed to hear the recent news that they're remaking the first one, though.
