At the end of the film Pinhead tricks Joey into giving him the puzzle box by posing as her dead father. As soon as she hands the box over he takes a knife from his belt with his left hand and poises to strike. Then it cuts to a shot from behind and he's now gripping the knife with his right hand.

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.

I have yet to see Bloodline or Inferno, but Hell on Earth is the worst of the first three Hellraiser movies. It lacks both the wit and the sheer terror of the first two films. What's more, it breaks the rules established in the previous Hellraiser films (that is, Cenobites cannot harm the truly innocent, the Cenobites can be summoned or banished by the box, and so on). And while Pinhead actually spoke very little in the first two films, in Hell on Earth he is downright talky. Unfortunately, only a few of his lines are very memorable. It is unfortunate that Clive Barker did not have more to do with this movie (he wrote and directed the first and wrote the story for the second), as it might have turned out much better.
