Trivia

Doug Bradley said he enjoyed the production and working with Hickox, he experienced discomfort in some of his scenes. Early on, Bradley had to act from within the uncomfortable Pillar of Souls prop, were Pinhead is trapped. This limited Bradley's acting to just his face and voice. Bradley also said that the makeup from Hellraiser III was his least favorite. They changed Pinheads makeup to make it faster to apply and remove, but this had the side effect of making it more uncomfortable to wear. however, Bradley was able to find an optician that allowed him to wear a prescription version of Pinheads black lenses, allowing him to stay in character for much longer periods.

Pinehead in New York
28 April 2000 | by newsteadadamSee all my reviews

One of the reasons I liked the first two Hellraiser movies was because it had different elements of evil. You had the wife who was willing to kill for her creepy skinless lover that lived in the attic, and than you had the demons that came from a puzzle box. The sequel to the first one had the same things that made the first one great. But in this one you just have Pinehead who is not as witty as he was in the first and second one. It seems to me that the makers of this movie are looking for another Freddy and Jason and I have to say that those two are stating to look really good and Pinehead is starting to look really bad. This movie could have been something good. But its not so don't wast your money.
