Tony Randel who directed Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988) co-wrote the story with Peter Atkins who completed the first draft of the screenplay in 1991. Many major elements remain unchanged from the shooting script, but the Barbie and CD cenobites do not exist. The end of the screenplay has Pinhead and Elliot merge into one being, but following this Joey makes a deal with him to be his willing bride in return for a successful life. Subsequent rewrites introduced the CD and Barbie Cenobites, Pinheads deception as Joey's father, and a happier ending. The setting was made unambiguously American, ending the first two films tradition of mixing British and American elements. See more »

You want it?
Is it yours?
No. Not mine. Yours.
How much you want for it?
Whatever you think it's worth.
Exactly the figure I had in mind. Take pleasure in it.

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. See more »

Hellraiser III: Hell On Earth
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.
