In London, after investigating crack addicted junkies for an article in her newspaper, the journalist Amy Klein watches a bizarre videotape. Her editor Charles Richmond received the footage of an underground group of youngsters in Bucharest apparently becoming zombies through the power of their leader Winter from a member, Marla, and invites Amy to prepare the story. Amy accepts the challenge, and once in Romania, she finds Marla dead with a puzzle cube in her hands. She brings the object to her hotel room, and opens it, beginning her journey to hell.

Dead in the Water....
7 January 2008 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Hellraiser VII :Deader is the usual Rich Bota abomination. Scant regard is given to the ideology of the original concept so what we have here is a cheap attempt at a Psycho thriller without the thrills.

Bota shoots everything in mid-shot and he loves still shots of…well…nothing. The script is appalling with the English characters talking in an overblown form that is simply ridiculous and smacks of ignorance.

The scene in the bathroom where the female lead finds a dagger plunged in her back quickly turns into blatant comedy. I am sure this was not Bota's intention but the director's ineptitude is in almost in every frame of this travesty.

The set up is a 'snuff type video', which is so obviously fake that any Journalist worth their salt would disregard it in an instant. It is a mark of a director's quality when they can't even make a home video look real.
