Matt: I'll be honest. My expectations were at an all-time low heading into this film. Based on the previous disaster and the fact that Doug Bradley was still not returning to the role he made famous, I was expecting to put down a nice fat 0 or 1 on this film. However, Gary Tunnicliffe put together a mangled mess of a movie that somehow managed to be a little enjoyable. Sure, Pinhead wasn't truly Pinhead and his voice was awful, but at least it wasn't as bad as the last guy, right? I was fascinated by how low the producers were willing to go to deliver the sheer nastiness we've come to expect from a Hellraiser film. That being said, the acting was very robotic and bland, and aside from the final sequences of the film, it just fell flat on its face-- again-- just like the last five or so films before it. I did enjoy the performance of the Auditor, and the cameos thrown in from past Hellraiser films were a nice touch as well. An appearance by Elm Street veteran Heather Langenkamp certainly helped, but that's about all it had going for it. 2.5 out of 10.
