Tony Randel was attached to direct, but the producers removed him after they became worried that his vision for the film was too bleak. Anthony Hickox replaced him after a mutual friend whom Hickox had cast in Waxwork II: Lost in Time (1992) suggested him. Clive Barker, who disliked Hickox's prior work, believed him a poor fit for the Hellraiser series, as Hickox was known for horror comedy films. When Hickox met with him, Barker stressed that he expected Hickox to take the material seriously. Hickox, a fan of the series, agreed, and used the first two films as a guide for the proper tone.

Some of the things trimmed from the Boiler Room massacre include:
A man cutting his face on a broken martini glass.
A woman getting half of her face ripped off by a hook.
A more graphic creation of the CD Cenobite
A man getting his jaw ripped off by a hook.
A reference to the Female Cenobite from the first two films with a woman getting her throat sliced in half and the flesh being pulled to the sides by wires.
A long line of people hooked together, including a chain to the throat for one woman and through the chest for one man.

* out of 4.
Cheap looking sequel reduces the complicated Hellraiser and Pinhead legends into your standard Freddy and Jason cliches complete with teenagers running around in distress and discussing their so called problems in between.
This time around Pinhead (Doug Bradley) and a TV news reporter (Terry Farrell) battle it out for possession over a box that can open the gates of hell and end the world as we know it. Not even Bradley's commanding presence can breath life into this.
