So far this gore-hound horror franchise, if nothing else, seems to be one of the most ambitious. Not in terms of budget but story. They always seem to be trying to do something different. This story has particularly large pretentions trying to cover how Cenobites first arrived & their "destruction" w/in a reincarnation scenario over 3 periods in time. Unfortunately there's a meaty story, but the execution is lacking. It also seems to have cut out (for running time?) scenes that might have helped

Hellraiser 4 has this amazing concept of putting Pinhead in space. I don't know who thinks it's amazing but whatever. I could be swayed to get behind that premise but this film offers it up and snatches it away so that over 45 minutes of flashbacks can lull you to sleep before the space premise rears its ugly head again. Adam Scott has never looked better than as a 1990's version of an 18th century dandy.

Adam Scott paid his rent on time, but it would be years until he could live without a roommate.

Pinhead holding a family hostage because he forgot he is a being from another dimension. The more Hellraiser story they come up with the worse it gets. I really hate Pinhead, but not as much as the child actor in this, total goober, just go endure the shining mini series to witness real hell(raiser).

[Workprint Cut] The unofficial, fan-based attempt to reedit the footage into an intent director Alan Smithee* and the studio would disapprove of proves the old adage, You can't shine shit, but sometimes you can make a helluva sculpture. I've now determined Hellraiser has always had intentions loftier than its budgets, and a 3-century familial battle with cenobites ending IN SPACE qualifies as the loftiest. Curiously, the film's original structure looks like The Fountain: to space and back again.

It's really bad and no real surprise Yagher wanted to give "Alan Smithee" the credit. I'd love to hear the moron pitching this movie. "Guys, seriously guys, check this. Pinhead? Awesome. Space? Also awesome. Pinhead IN space? Fucking bananas awesome!" No sir, not awesome. Stupid.

Hellraiser: Bloodline is the Jason X (the Leprechaun 4, if you will) of the Hellraiser franchise. The shitty, horror/sci-fi mix that producers try to pass off as a legitimate entry. That being said, Hellraiser Bloodlines is devoid of the fun of the other 2 films mentioned. It's script is atrocious, its plot a mockery of Pinhead, its director probably on crack; this film is devoid of almost any and all goodness.

The first of many horror series to look to the stars for a setting. Unlike the series that followed in its footsteps this one uses the space timeline as a tool to further the story, and in the end closes the entire story arc while leaving room for sequels that take place in between. I don't get the universal hate for this, I might be biased, but I friggin' love Hellraiser movies and this one is no where near the depth that its peers sequels dove to.

Pinhead in space, but unfortunately not for long. Essentially a 60 minute prologue with 20 minutes of actual story development, Bloodline spends too much time scrambling chronology in order to explore the history of the box and its relationship to the central players, resulting in a conspicuous lack of forward movement. Logistical problems aside, it isn't particularly interesting, and the film eventually topples under the weight of its narrative ambitions, which are entirely pointless.

Yes, it's HELLRAISER IN SPACE - low budget and choppy series entry (ominously credited to Smithee) attempts a backstory for Pinhead and his cenobites - awkwardly structured using multiple flashbacks, undoubtedly inserted to try and improve coherency, but they just manage to make things even more confusing. A complete lack of tension and scares is the real killer, though Vargas' amateurish performance doesn't help matters. Watchable and not unbearable, but pretty dire. Oddly abrupt ending.

This one tried to get pretty creative, juggling three different timelines, one of which is in the distant future, and also tackling the "origin" of the cenobites' puzzle box. It has some fairly cool monster effects in it, but we're once again seeing the Pinhead who wants to take over the world or kill all humans or whatever. I bet that's probably going to become the standard of the series from now on, since that's just a more easily-understandable motivation for an evil guy to have.

A stunningly bad movie, but kind of hilarious in its way. The studio cut it to ribbons so the story makes virtually no sense, Pinhead is reduced to cheap B villainy, and the integration of science fiction elements is... poorly handled.

Production-wise, there have been many poorer movies, and Bloodline introduces some interesting elements to the Hellraiser mythos, but it is too disjointed to make much of an impact, and what little impact it does make is dissipated by the many stupid ideas here, like the cenobite dog and the solar oven spaceship. The most notable thing about this entry is that it stars Kim Myers (Freddy's Revenge), Adam Scott (Parks & Rec), and a Noomi Rapace lookalike.

It's usually a pretty sure sign a flick's in big trubs when an auteur signs his work "Alan Smithee," the standard pseudonym adopted by disgruntled directors. Unhappily for horror hounds, this movie is no exception to that celluloid rule. The film's actual helmer, veteran FX ace Kevin Yagher, does accept design credit for Pinhead's pet hellhound, "Chattering Beast," which ranks as one of this otherwise weak sequel's few horrific highlights.

A strange, yet darkly clever entry in the Hellraiser saga, this one features three different time periods, and follows the bloodline of the man who created the puzzle box, and shows how his descendents try stop the terror of Pinhead and his Cenobites. This film also puts Pinhead in space, which is undeniably cool. This is truly the most creative of the entire saga.

Once again this hellraiser (as the previous ones) makes no sense (if you want it to make any sense) although it tries desperately in some regard. This hellraiser is actually "the end of hell" and should be watched after all the other Hellraiser movies (not that it matters that much). Some nice gore and action scenes make for an enjoyable evening.

A bit better than the III, but not exactly a brilliant movie. Fewer gaping plot holes than I have become accustomed to in this franchise, but lacking in either horror or gore.

Slightly better than the third due to an over the top view of the hellraiser story, explaining and sort of relating all the movies which has been , and follow. Sort of cool but not the greatest acting . All the shit in the past and in the future are so silly, tho the past sort of works, cos damn, there were allotta silly , simple people back then! Again, only for the fans of the series.

A gyp. You think it is going to be cheesy cenobytes in space, but it's a guy on a spacestation telling flashback stories about the history of the box. When they finally have some action onboard the ship, it might as well be a warehouse. Severe timeline issues, like Pinhead (cenobyted circa WWI) being on a first name basis with a demon who has been on Earth since the 1800s. For the most part, the kills are just plain stupid. One good quote though: "I am so exquisitely empty."
