Hellraiser 3: Worst of the four

Rated a Helpful Review

Pros:Excellent dialogue and some good new cenobites

Cons:some cheesy acting and a few laughable cenobites

The Bottom Line: There's some good gore but it's weak compared to the others in the series.

This is my least favourite of the Hellraiser series. But it's still a great movie. After a brief and fruitless insurgence against Leviathan, Pinhead and his crew seemed finished. But as they say. "Evil never dies." After being imprisoned in a pillar of souls, Pinhead must wait for the one thing that can set him free. Blood.

We are introduced to a new heroine. A starving reporter (played by the lovely Terry Farrel) named Joey. After bearing witness to a victim of The Lement Configuration at a hospital, Joey becomes determined that there is a great story behind what she saw. Which is unspeakable.

A local gigolo who owns the hottest night club in town purchases the pillar from a gallery (sold by a demon in disguise). Being a macabre piece of work it definitely suits it's surrounding at the club (you have to see it). As Pinhead witnesses the owner's desire and hunger from his confines, he begins planning a return. Only this time his release will be "unbound, unstoppable".

Using blood and trickery (and awesome dialogue) Pinhead is unleashed and begins a massacre that is unparalleled. We are introduced to new cenobites that are conveniently created along the way.

The only thing that will send Pinhead and his minions back to Hell is, of course, The Box. Which Joey possesses. With the help of a ghost (which I'll leave as a surprise), Joey will have to stomach the trail of blood left in Pinhead's path, confront the demon and send him back to where he belongs. Hell.
