Trivia

The uncredited coworker who interrupts Trevor and Bret at the water cooler was referred to by director Rick Bota as a "$10,000 extra." Labor laws of British Columbia forbade directors from directly instructing non-speaking extras - all orders had to be conveyed through the assistant director - and after Bota told the man to play the scene differently, the man was due a few thousand dollars in compensation.

not bad at all. great, in fact.
20 December 2003 | by nathallSee all my reviews

I've never been a 'big' Hellraiser fan. I saw the first one years ago, liked it, but never saw any of the sequels. A few weeks ago I was with my girlfriend at the video store and they had their typical 4 VHS for $20 special, so I picked this one up. I remembered I enjoyed the first one, and we couldn't agree on a fourth movie so this was it. I didn't even know what number this one was, but we watched it anyhow.

I have to say I loved it, as did my girlfriend. And she is *very* particular as to what she likes. She doesn't like most movies, actually. She enjoyed it so much in fact, she wants to see all the rest of them. We rented the first one last week (she's never seen it), and she thoroughly enjoyed it as well. But this one is still her favorite. I like 'em about the same.

This one is very interesting all the way through, and will keep you guessing until the end. Someone else said the last 20 minutes are the best, and I agree. But the whole movie was just awesome. I can't very well compare it to the rest of the series, but it sounds like the third and fourth are widely regarded as the worst. I'll decide that for myself when I see them.

I do know that Hellseeker fits very well as a sequel, and would have been more than worthy to be a bigscreen feature. There is no overuse of Pinhead, and there is just enough gore (but not too much).

I give it 9 out of 10 stars. A few more cenobites would earn it a perfect 10. If you're holding off on this one because you think the series is going downhill, SEE IT TODAY. I can't wait until the seventh one comes out. With all the negative surrounding this one, I had to throw in my two cents.
