Out of many bad sequels...the worst.

None of the films have been as good as the first three in this series. This one is no different.

Most of the acting, especially by the lead antagonist, Nick Eversman, is terrible. The effects and gore are nothing more than copies of scenes from the other movies with nothing new added to make it any more interesting.

I love the original Pinhead character, played by Doug Bradley in all of the other films. Stephan Smith Collins who portrays Pinhead in this sequel tries to recreate him but manages doing a poor man's imitation, instead of bringing anything new to the screen.

To future writers of any more sequels: STOP! Either come up with a new lead so we don't miss Bradley's performance so much or reboot the series from the start and try to come up with something new. Maybe consult with Clive Barker to see where he would go with it. Or better yet, put together some real money and have him write it instead.

Why not?

Every review of this movie has ripped it to shreds. Some reviews were fair, however. I'm one of these people who looks deeper into what he sees before him rather than the surface. While it is true that this film is by no means a masterpiece, it certainly isn't the biggest cinematic monstrosity of all time ("Children of the Living Dead" owns that title).

First off: Doug Bradley's absence. I'm a huge Doug Bradley/Pinhead fan, and there will never be anyone to play Pinhead better, but you have to look at what the new guy was up against. Very short shooting schedule and immediate fan ridicule pretty much doomed this poor guy. Overall, I felt he did a decent job with what he was given.

Second: special effects. Come on people, it's a direct-to-DVD movie. Are we looking for 'Star Wars' visuals here? Honestly, I felt the effects here were a bit better than they should have been.

Seriously, if you're a fan of this series, leave high expectations at the door and just give it an honest chance. You never know, you might end up liking it.

An insult

There comes a time when a story just needs to end. This can be due to a number of things. Either it's become too familiar, strayed too far from the source, or has stretched itself too thin. However, if there is still money to be made an end may be nowhere in sight. Dimension Films is known for milking franchises for all they're worth, especially Horror. Multiple sequels can kill a franchise, but not all of them are bad. The 'Hellraiser' series started on such a high and had it's ups and downs through seven more films. It appeared that it had finally died, but jump ahead a few years and we now have this embarrassment.

Pros: Story has potential. Actors do their best, especially Nick Eversman. Quite good effects.

Cons: Flat direction. Amateurish writing. Even at 70 minutes the pace drags. Repeats some things from the original, but less effectively. Way underdeveloped characters that you won't care about. Doug Bradley was wise to pass on this, but his replacement is terrible. Generic score. You remember very little of this by the end credits. Plot holes a plenty.

Final thoughts: It is no secret that the only reason this was made was so Dimension could retain the remake rights. That doesn't mean this film had to be bad, but it certainly is. I couldn't wait for this waste of film to be over. It's like a fan made 'Hellraiser' sequel shot with real film cameras. Like they say, "A polished turd is still a turd."

My rating: 1/5
