Did You Know?


The original script by Neal Marshall Stevens had nothing to do with the Hellraiser mythos, but when it was decided that this would be a Hellraiser sequel, Tim Day drastically re-wrote the script, including an almost entirely new third act and plot and making the character of Winter a descendant of the toymaker Lemarchand.

In the scene where Amy grabs the envelope and the box from the "dead" woman in the bathroom, she takes the box from the woman's left hand and puts it in her bag. When the woman "awakens" you see Amy jump away. The scene then cuts to the woman in the bathroom and she is still holding the box in her left hand after it was supposedly removed. See more »

"I am the WAY!"
3 July 2005 | by (Kentucky) – See all my reviews

The latest installment in the Hellraiser series is by far and wide the worst entry. Fans seem to be torn in regards to the direction the direct to video sequels have taken. Some are upset Pinhead is no longer a central character, some don't care. I love Hellraiser II which features Pinhead prominently and I also love Inferno in which he barely has a cameo. So I am not biased either way. I will not tear this movie down just because Doug Bradley has a minuscule role. I will tear it down for being an incoherent piece of crap. This particular script was pre-existing (simply titled Deader) and the good folks at Dimension decided that they could turn it into a stellar Hellraiser film. It didn't work. Clive Barker's Cenobites just don't fit into this story. It's as simple as that. And that title: Deader. Talk about poor English. Expect yet another Hellraiser sequel (again directed by Rick Bota) in September.
