I only watched this bc it was supposed to be the return of Kirsty, the franchise's first protagonist & longest Pinhead nemesis. I wanted to see a final showdown & I do - in the last 25 minutes. Kirsty's neither heroic nor clever, but she has become more ruthless & it's enough to keep this from being completely awful, but it takes an hour to get there. Worse, the hour has so many meaningless & disconnected Is-Any-Of-This-Real dream-like scenes (& feels that way) I had to FF 2/3rds of the movie.

Hellseeker is pretty much a retread of Inferno. Given how poorly that was received, it's anyone's guess why they followed a similar path when it didn't work. It's a low rent psychological thriller about a bland corporate schlub who starts experiencing strange visions after being involved in a car accident that killed his wife. Bota employs the same tired tricks ad nauseum/ad infinitum, and the twist is straight out of Shyamalan's trash can. There isn't nearly enough Pinhead either.

The technique of the main character's life delving into maddness and the camera quickly spinning back to reality is overused to the point of absurdity. The acting is relatively good, still the lead in Hellraiser 5 probably the best acting out of the series. The movie itself feels more like Silent Hill than the original Hellraiser. It's not very scary, the story has some holes and the cinematography isn't as crisp or impressive as Hellraiser 5. It's not terrible but it's not good.

Just like the previous sequel, again a nice attempt at a hellraiser movie! A solid script combined with decent acting and some strange shit here and there makes a good watch! Again like Inferno a couple of good twists , and slightly better story because we get to see Kirsty Cotton again!If only they continued going up in the series, cos after this , it was all downhill.

Hellseeker is like a better version of Silent Hills: Revelations, but that's not saying all that much. Very obviously not supposed to be a Hellraiser film, its Hellraiser aspects feel so forced and intrusive on what might have been a semi-decent script. It is creepy, but the acting, camerawork, and stylization are so bad, its almost as unforgivable as Hellraiser 3 or Bloodlines.

The twist ending was one I saw by the half way point. The cenobites show up in hallucinations and quickly disappear without incident. I'll mark this one a dud for the Hellraiser series, in spite of it not being horrible. It's still far beyond the quality of it's peers by the sixth movie. This does, however, signal the decline of Hellraiser, which is a pale victory.

Starts off as a mediocre-but-watchable no budget indie horror thing, but then it becomes a Hellraiser sequel. It at least has more to offer than "hey, cenobites", so it's the best film in the series after the first two. I'm also not sure if I like Dean Winters for his acting ability, his screen presence, or my latent homosexual attraction to him.

It's another mystery-romp in the Sixth Sense sense, completely stripped of talent and finance.

Pretty much everything except the last 10 minutes or so of the movie is a series of dream sequences and hallucinations. It never stops for half a second to establish ANYTHING as "real" in the space of the movie, and so it's impossible to get invested in any single aspect of the story. In kind of a baffling turn, Ashley Laurence returns as the same character from the first two movies. That is, assuming this isn't just a sloppy adaptation of a prior screenplay (which it probably is).

A horrible truth is dawning on me: since the Hellraiser movies are all about pain, pleasure and suffering, I think the movies themselves are actually metaphysical puzzle boxes that remove pleasure from the equation but only force the viewer to experience horrible suffering. It's actually kinda clever of the makers and, of course, completely intentional. Or maybe I'm just going balls-to-the-wall insane from all these incredibly shitty sequels.

The best Hellraiser since the sequel. Handles dementia as well as Jacob's Ladder and manages to out-creep Silent Hill.

The second (and FAR worse) of the "It was all a dream" duo of Hellraisers. Avoid unless you like Dennis Duffy

By far the best Hellraiser in this horror series. It's actually more of a thriller. Less Pinhead equals more psychological warfare behind the camera. A great main actor best known for his role in the series Oz, Dean Winters and the return of the (now beautiful) Ashley Laurence make for a great watch! Horror and thriller fans, please don't miss this, it's very much underrated!!

Somewhat interesting story, but very disjointed and confusing at times. Ties up the 'loose end' of Kirsty in the series finally. At the very least, all the Hellraiser movies have excellent cheese value. Good to watch (and make fun of) with friends.

Originally written without Pinhead but adjusted to get produced, this is a creepy story with some amazing surreal scenes. The video camera girlfriend murder is as twisted as that can possibly be.

Similar to Inferno, but they try to shoehorn in Kirsty, the hero character from the first three movies. If I hadn't just seen part 5 this might have rated a little higher, because I am a sucker for madness in film.

Not as horrible as Hellraiser 5, but not golden either..it sums up as a fair thriller with a bit of sexual perversion and cenobites added.

The cheesy guitar intro gives away how bad this is going to be. I hate stories in which we don't know what's reality and what's not, so I was bound to dislike this no matter what.

The Hellraiser franchise reignites a little, even if it is in the more introverted, subdued vein of 'horror'. In fact, it's not a horror movie at all, more of a graphic supernatural thriller, and despite being slightly better than the previous few films, that's really not saying much for it. Acting: ok, script: an improvement on the last couple of hellraisers, plot: thriller, not horror, Special effects: reasonable, but not even that good for 2002.

The weaker version of Hellraiser: Inferno. Might be interesting enough on its own but watching these two back to back just made me go "oh my god, not again!"
