The end credits have the "Filmed in Panavision" moniker, suggesting the film was shot in cinema-scope (2.35:1), however the film was shot in flat (1.85:1) ratio. The end credit was more than likely meant to read "Filmed with Panavision cameras and lenses". See more »
Just before release, Miramax had some scenes deleted and other re-shot, causing director Kevin Yagher to disown the film (the theatrical release has a director credited for 'Alan Smithee'). A new director, Joe Chappelle, was brought in to shoot the additional material. See more »
Yes, all lame horror franchises eventually go to space to die, where they re-enact the second Aliens Movie.
the plot line here is that an eccentric scientist has hijacked a space station of his own design, and relates to the authorities that in fact, his ancestor created the puzzle box that releases the Cenobites, and that they have spent the last few hundred years tormenting his family.
There are three stories within the movie, on in 18th century France, another in Modern America, and the last in space. In this film, Doug Bradley's character of Pinhead starts to take an increasingly subordinate role. (He doesn't actually appear until the second modern story, which is probably accurate, since he was a WWI human before becoming a demon.)
Instead, the focus is on a female demon named Angelique, who inhabits the body of a dead prostitute after a foolish nobleman releases her. Except halfway through the movie, she is forgotten and we have the Scientist trapping Pinhead in a dimension where he can only phone it in for the Direct to DVD sequels.
