The out of print Paramount DVD despite the R rating on the package is really a completely different version and features the uncut sex scene and uncut gore scenes from the unrated version and runs 93 minutes. It also contains two music alterations, most obviously the end credits which have a 'stinger' sound effect and then it jumps right into the song "Hellraiser' blaring over the soundtrack. The original end credits fade out with the classic Hellraiser score building over the soundtrack and playing over the credits for a moment before the "Hellraiser' heavy metal song begins.The sound quality of this DVD is awful and heavily compressed at only 98 kbps. It appears this print matches the Lionsgate Canadian dvd that had been available for years. The Paramount DVD is anamorphic widescreen while the Lionsgate release is not. The true U.S. R rated version runs 91 minutes and is available on VHS from Paramount. It misses out on the more explicit sex and gore scenes, and also misses out on the added character moments available in the unrated 97 minute version released on VHS and Laserdisc by Paramount.

The third instalment of the "Hellraiser" franchise begins with a reporter the big story continues to elude until one night at the hospital she witnesses something supernatural and inexplicable. The mischievous cube has returned and is wreaking havoc. Then one of the creatures behind it offers a character named JP the chance to join up with it; at first JP is reluctant, he lures girls into his inner sanctum with flattery, and once he has had his way with his conquest of the night, gives her her marching orders. He may be a jerk of the first order, but murder for pleasure is not his style, even though the entity reminds him he murdered his own parents!
JP agrees to go along with it but the partnership doesn't last long because after he tries to feed his next conquest to it, she punches him out with a knuckle dustered fist, and takes his place. After that it all gets a bit confusing, as if it hadn't been already, but if you like gore, special effects and pyrotechnics, you should find something in the last twenty minutes or so of interest, and if you like the type of music one usually associates with films of this nature, you might like the soundtrack too, especially the title song by Motörhead.
