Editorial Reviews

From horror legend Clive Barker comes "the ultimate in fear!" Dan Scapporotti, Cinefantastique. Some call him the Black Prince of Hell. Some call him the Angel of Suffering. The horror fans everywhere, he's Pinhead (Doug Bradley), the urbane, spike-faced minion of evil with a bloodlust for human souls. Now Pinhead's back in the most diabolical Hellraiser of them all - Hellraiser III: Hell On Earth! TV reporter Joey Summerskill (Terry Farrell, Back To School) is on assignment at a local hospital when a bloodied teenage boy is rushed into the emergency room. As Joey watches, the writhing boy is literally torn apart by chains impaling his body. Fleeing the carnage, Joey follows the victim's girlfriend to a downtown nightclub, the Boiler Room. In the apartment above the Boiler Room rests the owner's newly purchased sculpture: A pillar etched with distorted figures and faces. Among the frozen images is Pinhead. Tonight he shall be released.

"I have seen the future of horror and its name is Clive Barker" - Stephen King

Well maybe at the time, Stephen. Hellraiser creator/writer Clive Barker was the J.K. Rowling of Horror in the 80's and 90's. So like King his novels caught the eye of anxious filmakers, wanting to see if it would successfully translate to screen. It seemed like a good idea at the time, due to the huge success of Horror with the likes of Friday The 13th, Halloween, A Nightmare On Elm Street, and the like. But after two medicore attempts (Transmutations & Rawhead Rex), it was time for Barker himself to take the reins, and direct what most consider to be his greatest work: The Hellbound Heart, what would eventually be known to filmgoers as simply Hellraiser.

Hellraiser was a landmark film for it's time. Back in 1987, American 80's horror fans hadn't seen a film so graphically surreal, so deep in plot, so....well British. It was a monster hit, giving tired franchises like Friday & Nightmare a run for it's money. He quickly followed it up with Hellbound:Hellraiser II going even deeper and plot-heavy to basically the same success. So once the filmbug bit him real deep, he decided to adapt another best-selling novel of his "Cabal" into a film known as to 1990 audiences Nightbreed. But at the time it didn't work. And just like that Clive Barker went back to the writing board of novels, only returning to the chair five years later with the equally poorly received "Lord Of Illusions". So maybe he wasn't the next Stephen King of films (not that King's film track record was all that great to begin with), but that addition of the two Hellraiser films will forever mark him as one of Horror's greatest pop-icon creators.

Warning: minor spoilers ! ! !

I've been Jones'n for this movie for such a long time it just isn't funny anymore ! I've always known that "Hell on Earth" was not for everyone, but for me, it was a surreal experience since the first time I saw it originally in the theatre.

The night club featured was so much like the old Underground Goth Clubs I had used to frequent like the Torture Garden or the Velvet Dungeon or the Rubber Ball. I saw a special truth that other horror film makers tended to overlook; the restless wanderings of the darker urban club culture. While showcasing their gravity towards their self-loathing empty nomadic existence, they get slaughtered and remade by the Black Pope of Hell.

Pinhead, dose this one amazing mockery towards Golgotha Hillock, and in a church no less ! Also forcing the resident priest to eat-of-his-flesh in further sacrilege to God's son (from Pinhead's own tortured and ruined flesh, symbolically of where the Lancea Longini would of defiled Christ's side - "side" was of course originally translated as of the body, torso, or breast and not literally one's side in the English).

Also, Terry Farrell portrays a disillusioned media conduit of skepticism who is transformed by her witnessing of the seedy supernatural tendrils of precisely manipulated agony from beyond. Everyone from the cartoony news room producer to the needy ex-girlfriend was in perfect tone for this movie.

Where else would you see a movie where scenes of old war carnage are mirror bookend with scenes of modern massacre within the same movie ! If you watch for the near subliminal implications within this movie, you will have a blast at picking out the references to religion/spirituality, social sexual domination, and restless social ennui.

Format: DVD
First, the DVD, it's not the greatest in the world, No Dolby 5.1 Surround, not letterboxed, but nice to complete the series on DVD at last. This is technically the unrated version of the film, 2 added minutes, which is mostly extended gore...Great stuff! There are NO extras either, oh well. It's available, I guess that's what counts and as originally a Paramount Pictures release I wouldn't look for a Collector's Edition any time soon. As for the movie itself, I loved it. With the introduction of new Cenobites, CD head the coolest of them all, gave us a fresh perspective of Pinhead's abilities to replace his former troup. Unfortunately they didn't give his new cohorts a lot time to explore. Pinhead does get more screen time (unlike Hellraiser Inferno) and finally Doug Bradley (not Doug Stewart as mentioned in another review) gets screen time without makeup, gives us a broader view of his backstory and how he became this monstrosity. ("Bloodline" gives us the Lament Configuration Box history). All in all a pretty good film except for some cheesy effects, the melding of Pinhead and Elliott at the end is a good example. Here's hoping for Hellraiser six, although when I met Doug Bradley he told me not to hold my breath for number 5, but I think he needs to redeem himself after "Inferno". To me Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth was Heaven on Earth.

Anyone looking to get this movie should know that a real RE-release of it is planned for August OF 2006, by Paramount Pictures. The re-relese will include a new Anamorphic widescreen transfer and Dolby 5.1 sound, along with a few extras.

This is a decent entry in the Hellraiser saga, and the frist time that this particular chapter is getting a real release. I would suggest anyone wanting this move to wait untill August and by it from Amazon then.

Why out of print?
This movie's had a very spotty history on DVD. First we get that cheap-o "special edition" in 2001 and then this version goes out of print in no time. I'm glad I snagged a copy last year.

I really don't know what the plan is. I hope Paramount sells the rights to Blue Underground or... Read More
