Storyline

The youngsters Chelsea, Allison, Derrick and Mike are grieving the suicide of their friend Adam, who became obsessed with an internet game called Hellworld. Their former friend Jake blames the group since they have not stopped playing the game even when Adam was unstable. When they receive an invitation to a Hellworld party in an isolated mansion, the reluctant Chelsea decides to join the group and they surprisingly find Jake in the party. He explains that he was invited by a girl he met in a chat room. They are hosted by the owner of the place, who shows them his private macabre collection. Along the night, they find that they are in a party in hell. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

something different for the franchise
10 September 2005 | by (Everett, Washington) – See all my reviews

After seeing a bunch of these negative reviews, which are completely unwarranted BTW, I feel compelled to speak up in defense of Hellworld.

First of all, this movie is not *NEARLY* as bad as these people are making it out to be. And I have been a fan of Hellraiser since the first movie.

I go into movies not knowing what to expect, and therefor not expecting anything, aside from expecting to enjoy the movie on some level.

That said, this movie is completely and entirely different than any of the other movies in the series. Obviously you can say that about any of the Hellraiser movies compared to any of the others, but this movie is on an entirely different level.

I felt this movie is all around a whole lot of fun, almost a "valentine" to fans of the Hellraiser series. Like you step back and take a look at the first seven movies as a series (of sorts), and then this as a separate entity dedicated to their legacy.

This movie is not about Pinhead, Leviathan, the Box, it's history, an individual's internal evil, or their own personal hell. This movie is about fans of the series (like you and I) and one exciting night in their lives that goes bad.

FWIW, Pinhead and the Cenobites are not *AT ALL* demoted to Freddy Kruger analogues spewing one-liners for their comedic effect, as others have posted here previously. I wonder if these folks have actually watched the movie.

Do not go into this movie expecting something intellectual, because you won't find it. This movie has a lot of fun, and it does it well. You also can't go into this movie expecting to see something like any of the other movies, because you won't find that either. "Dark," "creepy," and "twisted" are probably the adjectives you use to describe the other episodes in the series. Those don't apply here, except maybe "twisted" to some extent. You probably won't be frightened watching this movie. But the gore is *definitely* there, and Hellworld accomplishes it in an interesting and fun (there's that word again) way.

You might be able to call some of the shots along the way, but I can almost guarantee you won't call the final twist.

Being the avid Hellraiser fan that I am, I bought this movie the day it came out and watched it. I thoroughly enjoyed it on the level mentioned above. And I will watch it again.

I don't see it as an extension of Clive Barker's original vision for these movies, but rather a tribute to some part of that.

I give this movie a 7 out of 10. I give it a 7 because I enjoyed the movie, but the acting by most of the leads could have used a bit of work. OK, maybe more than a bit. But Lance Henriksen, as ALWAYS, was simply fantastic. Long live Lance! If you enjoy any of the Hellraiser movies, I recommend you at least rent this movie and give it a chance. Watch it like a tribute to your favorite series. I think you'll enjoy it.
