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. Written by

When Amy is stabbed she gets up out of bed. In one shot there is a thick spot of blood on the right shoulder of her night shirt as she gets out of bed. Then, as she stands next to her bed for a few seconds, the blood on her right shoulder is now light and smeary and not thick as was already shown. When she gets into the bathroom there is now no blood on her shoulder. See more »

It's not a case of lucky number seven for the Hellraiser series.
Journalist Amy Klein (Kari Wuhrer) likes to live life on the edge, taking assignments that offer her danger and excitement; when she is given the opportunity to track down a bizarre cult in Romania, who are allegedly able to bring the dead back to life, she happily hops on the first plane from London to Bucharest (where, as it so happens, horror films can also be made on the cheap).
Not long after her arrival, Amy tracks down the apartment of Marla (Georgina Rylance), one of the cult's members, where she finds the girl's dead body clutching a strange puzzle box. A video tape made by Marla warns Amy not to open the box, but the intrepid reporter doesn't listen and winds up having to face her demons (both metaphorically and literally)...
Directed by Rick Bota, who also made Hellseeker (the previous film in the franchise), Deader is, for the most part, a confusing load of twaddle largely thanks to a script that was never originally intended to be part of the Hellraiser franchise, but which was adapted to accommodate the Lament Configuration, Pinhead and his Cenobite pals.
To his credit, Bota does what he can with the resultant mess, actually managing to deliver a couple of surprisingly well-staged scenesAmy trying to reach past Marla's corpse to get to a package, and Amy waking to discover that she has a knife buried in her backbut despite these memorable moments, some reasonable gore and a smattering of gratuitous nudity (including brief toplessness from Wuhrer), the film as a whole still continues the gradual downward slide for the series.
4.5 out of 10, rounded up to 5 for IMDb.
