Plot Summary

It's the year 2127. Pinhead, the evil cenobite of the series, has found himself on board a space station in outer space, run by scientist Dr.Merchant. Dr. Merchant's mission is to close the gates to hell forever. Because his ancestor, a toymaker in the 18th century, built the evil puzzlebox that opens the gates to hell. And through the generations, the family of the bloodline has tried to stop it. But now, Dr.Merchant has built the reverse box. The box that will close the gates to hell instead of opening it.

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Smithee: disowned the version with cuts made behind his back due to conflicting artistry ideas. Yagher's version contained much more graphic imagery, plot, and explained everything that happened in the film. The producers disagreed and demanded Pinhead should appear sooner despite every version of the script up until then having him appear around the 40-minute mark. When Yagher was unable to satisfy he disowned it and never finished filming some final scenes. Joe Chappelle was brought on to finish the film, filming new scenes from re-writes including the narrative framing device. Some scenes of the original script were thus never shot. See more »
Goofs As Angelique says to Pinhead "Things seem to have changed" she is standing in front of him. Then as Pinhead responds "Hell is more ordered..." she is now standing closer and to his side. This is because the original filmed line was "Things seem to have changed, I was expecting my clowns" in reference to Demon Clowns that were cut from the past segment of the film. Cutting "I was expecting my clowns" means her position 'jumps' closer to Pinhead and creates this continuity error. See more »

Crazy Credits 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 »
