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.

starring: Dean Winters, Ashley Laurence, Rachel Hayward, Doug Bradley, Sarah Jane-Redmond, Jody Thompson, Kaaren de Zilva.
plot: Fifteen years after Kirsty (Ashley Laurence) survived a series of horrible events, she is now all grown up and happily married to Trevor (Dean Winters). One day, in the middle of an argument, they are in a violent car crash which kills Kirsty. The next morning, Trevor wakes up with amnesia and finds himself in a world full of sex, murder and greed.
the good: This one follows in the vain of INFERNO while also bringing Ashley Laurence (Hellraiser 1-3) back as Kirsty. While Laurence provided great nostalgia, the story provided great mystery.
Like the main character from INFERNO, Trevor must pay for his sins but also must find out if he is really in hell.
I also enjoyed the presence of Doug Bradley as Pinhead, like in the previous entry, this shows how Pinhead is not good or evil, but both in one.
The twist at the end was something I never saw coming and made the whole movie fun.
the bad: Some of this seemed too much like INFERNO, which made it slightly boring in some parts.
The director of this is directing the two upcoming sequels DEADER and HELLWORLD. I hope he pulls them off.
