A couple of the drawings/paintings on the editors office walls are actual works by Clive Barker. See more »
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 »
This latest instalment in the Hellraiser series is probably the worst since Bloodline.
You won't care for a single character and the constant flashbacks only hinder an already poor plot which seems out of context with anything that has come before it, at times it's like Buffy with a cameo from Pinhead.
Sadly the low budget roots aren't as well disguised as Inferno/Hellseeker and it clearly looks and feels like a TV Movie!
The amount of screen time that Pinhead has is limited (like the past two movies) only in this case he isn't as sinister when he does make an appearance.
Definitely one to avoid, watch Hellraiser 6 if you want a good sequel.
