Product Description

A spine-tingling thriller, HELLRAISER: INFERNO is the next inescapably terrifying chapter in the heart-stopping HELLRAISER series! It's the powerful story of a shady L.A. detective (Craig Sheffer -- THE PROGRAM, A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT) who finds himself lost in a darkly nightmarish world of evil when he solves the mysterious puzzle box that releases the diabolical demon, Pinhead! As those around him begin to meet tragic fates, he sets out to conquer the horrifying Pinhead and escape eternal hell! Also starring popular Nicholas Turturro (TV's NYPD BLUE, EXCESS BAGGAGE), HELLRAISER: INFERNO combines great special effects and relentless thrills to deliver exciting, edge-of-your-seat entertainment!

This is the first Hellraiser sequel that doesn't bear the imprimatur of creator Clive Barker, and that makes it a sequel that many Hellraiser fans will want to disown, but they shouldn't dismiss it altogether. Now under the control of Miramax producers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, the franchise takes an entirely new direction, and Inferno is primarily a detective thriller in which a corrupt cop (Craig Sheffer) takes on a case that will judge his soul and, ultimately, damn him forever. His judge and jury will be Pinhead (Doug Bradley) and his legion of twisted Cenobites, but before he can be tried and condemned, Sheffer's cop will watch as those around him are killed off one by one, leaving a trail of blood (and telltale severed fingers) that leads back to the torment of his own youth.

So, what you really have here is a variation on It's a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol, with all the themes reversed to hellish extremes. The plot doesn't hold together all that well, but you can't fault the film for establishing and maintaining a heavily somber tone. This is pretty dark stuff, after all, and although Hellraiser fans will lament that Pinhead's appearance is relatively brief, he's presented here in an intriguing new light--not merely an icon of pain and suffering, but a giver of counsel and justice to those (like Sheffer's cop) who arguably deserve the eternal anguish they will receive. Does that make Pinhead a good guy? If this otherwise lugubrious sequel achieves anything, it's that it raises that question and lets the viewer decide. --Jeff Shannon

This is one of the very worst movies I've ever seen.

If you really know the rest of the "Hellraiser" films, don't even bother with this one because you won't like it.
LadyLestat
The movie has a very good plot, decent enough acting, alright soundtrack and decent sound effects.

After having watched all four Hellraiser movies, I think Hellraiser Inferno is completely different. Well, I have got the feeling that a lot of true Hellraiser fans won't like this chapter. The protagonist of this movie isn't very sympathic and friendly: he takes drugs, sleeps with hookers(even though he has got a beautiful wife) and denounces his partner at the police station. A lot of people will despise this character and turn off the tv. However I stayed with this broken character and it is quite interesting to see how he unleashes the horrors of the box. His evil character traits are essential for the end of movie. Another flaw is that Pinhead only appears for two or three minutes on the screen. Nonetheless the movie deals with the desperate search of the protagonist for a mysterious person called the Engineer, who is connected with the box. If you accept the fact that this Hellraiser movie is completely different from the other parts, you'll enjoy a great and dark horror thriller.

If you pay close attention, you'll notice that the opening credits of HELLRAISER: INFERNO are missing the words "Clive Barker." In its place are a couple guys whose last names are Weinstein. That's a clue right there: this movie isn't interested in building on the Hellraiser mythos.

It IS interested in clues, though. Craig Sheffer (of One Tree Hill) narrates the film as Detective Joseph Thorne. Joe is a good cop ("I'm good with puzzles" he growls) but not a good man. He wishes he was good, but can't be bothered to do much more than wish. Not until people he knows start dying.

Along for the ride is Joe's hapless partner, Detective Nenonen (played by John Turturro's youngest brother, Nick). Together the two stumble onto a case involving sadistic deaths, a strange puzzle box, and a criminal mastermind known only as The Engineer. At the scene of each crime is found the severed finger of a mysterious child who -- by all accounts -- is still alive.

It's actually a pretty cool idea, when all is said and done, but the delivery here is tiresome. Sometimes films confuse the word "mysterious" with "confusing," and here its no different. Joe is tormented by mysterious dreams and hallucinations, grotesque visions that blur the line between reality and nightmare. Loathesome though he may be, Joe is the audience's viewpiece, and viewers are bound to realize they're being manipulated long before Joe discovers the same thing about himself.

A lot of Hellraiser fans who are simply Pinhead-freaks may not like this movie, but what about Clive Barker fans? I believe this movie captured his dark, atmospheric feel that (usually) only he can create. The first two Hellraiser movies bleed Clive Barker throughout. The third is more 'Fright Night' entertainment than horror, but I still love it because I'm a fan of the director Anthony Hickox's style, like in the Waxwork movies. The fourth wasn't really scary but I liked the idea behind the old demon vs. new demon thing. Still, the third and fourth didn't have that Clive Barker feel. I feel this fifth movie did him a lot of justice. First of all, he's said himself that he never intended for Pinhead to get all the spotlight. The movies evolve around those who are unfortunate enough to open the box and how it affects those around them. So the fact that Pinhead's appearance in Inferno is brief shouldn't bother Clive's fans because, after all, he wasn't in the first two for very long either. This movie covers something none of the others bothered to dive into much: what does the box's victims REALLY go through. Sure, in the the second movie we see Frank's 'hell' of seeing all the beautiful women writhing around under the sheets but aren't really there. It's fitting for Frank but not near as terrifying as what our Nightbreed pal Craig Sheffer goes through in Inferno. Also, I remember in an interview about Lord of Illusions, Clive Barker had mentioned how he'd like to see more mystery and detective stories intertwined with horror. That was his given reason for doing Lord of Illusions. In that sense, Inferno does him a lot of justice.Read more ›

Following some of the previous customer reviews of this movie I approached it with some trepidation. However I'm happy to say I was not dissappointed. I loved this film. After the dire Hellraiser4: Bloodline I thought that the series had no where else to go. I was wrong. What we have here is a new and interesting take on the Hellraiser mythology.
Pinhead is back to being a sinister presence lurking round the edges of the story. The violence and gore is kept to an effective minimium. The script is sharp and inteligent. The writers have carefully avoided churning out just another bog standard sequel and given us a much more refreshing horror movie. Graig Sheffer is a revelation in the lead role, managing to make his character brutal, corrupt, sympathetic and sexy.
I wouldn't usually buy a DVD without seeing the movie first but I have no idea when this film will be released in the UK. It was worth the risk. I was not dissappointed with Hellraiser: Inferno as a film. A few more extra features would have been nice though. There isn't even a trailer. The lack of features on the disc is the only reason that I have given four stars and not five.
