Trivia

Rushed into production after Dimension films realized that a contractual stipulation meant they stood to lose the rights to the Hellraiser franchise if they did not produce a sequel to 2005's Hellraiser: Hellworld. Consequently, the entire production time was roughly three weeks, including an eleven-day shooting schedule. See more »

Like with pizza, even a bad 'Pinhead' film is good horror.

'HELLRAISER: REVELATIONS': Two and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

This ninth chapter in the popular horror franchise was made on a budget of just $300,000, filmed in just three weeks and rushed into and out of production in order to save the studio, The Weinstein Company, from losing it's rights to the material. Due to the hastiness of the production long time star Doug Bradley decided not to return as 'Pinhead' and the resulting film is undoubtedly the weakest and most disappointing of the series. It's still interesting to a certain extent though, like all chapters in the mythology, and offers at least something to satisfy fans' bizarre fascination. It was directed by Victor Garcia and written by Gary J. Tunnicliffe. Actor Stephan Smith Collins steps into the notorious role of 'Pinhead'.

The film is the first based on an original script since the fourth installment and borrows greatly from Clive Barker's novella 'The Hellbound Heart'. It tells the story of two young men, Steven Craven (Nick Eversman) and Nico Bradley (Jay Gillespie), who run away from home to Mexico to party for several days until one accidentally kills a prostitute. While deciding what to do about the mess they've gotten themselves into a vagrant (Daniel Buran) approaches them in a bar and tells them he knows about their predicament. He gives them the infamous puzzle box which they later open and then go missing. The story flashes back and forth in time to the boys' families as they attempt to piece together what happened to the missing youths. They too open the puzzle box and must face Pinhead and his cenobites as well.

The acting, writing and directing are all weak but because of the subject matter the film is still interesting and somewhat horrifying. It would be pretty hard to really mess up Barker's original concept; putting 'Pinhead' and the cenobites into anything is always going to make for a compelling story. There has been a lot of press about the fact that the film is advertised as 'from the mind of Clive Barker' and Barker says this is untrue, (pretty profanely). So he obviously doesn't think too much of the film and with good reason. It was rushed through production and doesn't do true justice to his original vision at all. Like with pizza though, even a bad 'Pinhead' film is good horror. If you're a fan of the series you could still at least be somewhat amused (I was).
