Trans-Atlantic gave Hickcox six weeks to shoot the film, Hickox had previously established a very fast shooting schedule that used long hours, which meant the cast had to adjust to his unorthodox style and the studios demands. Doug Bradley said that he worked for 17 hours straight one day, and the large number of scene shot daily meant they had little time to perfect them. Hickcox's preference for in-camera editing sped up production but limited the actors view of the complete film, as it limited the editing phase.unlike the previous Hellraiser films, the stages used were all very close to each other and shared a single sound stage, which made shooting simultaneously with multiple crews difficult.

The US unrated laserdisc release from Paramount is uncut and features brief extra footage of a topless girl dancing in The Boiler Room and two new scenes:
Immediately after Terri moves out from Joey, there is a scene inside the Boiler Room nightclub where a couple are seen buying some drugs from a drug dealer. Terri is in the Boiler Room, where she witnesses a couple in love, which makes her even more lonely. Next, she purchases some coffee, and looks up to see JP who says "Hey baby, glad you could make it." This new scene ends here; next JP is seen telling Terri to "come on in" to his room. When Elliot tells Joey about his past, they are standing around a campfire. The Nightclub Massacre sequence was trimmed for the UK Theatrical version - but was released uncut when they released it on video as the Directors Cut.
There is a new scene immediately before the footage from Hellbound (Elliot playing with box at start), in which Elliot is seen buying the box in an Indian bazaar.
I liked the first two Hellraiser movies, they had good ideas and good scary visual, but I did not like Hellraiser III. I think it was made at the beginning of the CGI (Computer Generated Graphics) effects "fashion", but CGI was not yet prepared for a horror movie, at least not with their budget :) Props, make-up and even stop-motion would do a better job.
Oh! And (sadly) there were the new kinds of cenobites. I did not watch this sequel to see what new cenobite would came up, I was expecting a good and clever horror movie like the other ones, but instead I got lame cenobites, bad CGI effects, badly used cliches and a weak story. Sometimes it seemed they were making a bad parody. I even did not want to see the following movies, afraid that they would make dislike the whole series.
