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

A couple of the drawings/paintings on the editors office walls are actual works by Clive Barker. See more »
Amy fakes out Winter and stabs the knife into the table next to the bed, the table holding The Puzzle Box. At first the blade is turned away from Amy, the next shot of the knife shows the blade is turned toward Amy. Then, as she grabs The Puzzle Box off of the table, the knife blade is turned away from Amy. 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.
