Editorial Reviews

Amy Klein (Kari Wuhrer, Eight Legged Freaks) is a tough-as-nails reporter working for an underground newspaper. But when Amy's job leads her to a mysterious cult and the evil Pinhead, any moment could be her last. The thrilling villain you love to fear delivers another hellish nightmare you'll never forget. With ""a dead-on performance by Kari Wuhrer and a great visual eye by director Rick Bota,"" Deader is a must-have for any horror fan (Beyond Hollywood).

I went in to this movie with really low expectations. I had not been to happy with the last few Hellraiser films, mainly because they didn't feel like Hellraiser movies at all. Well, this one still feels distant from the core Hellraiser material, but it's nowhere near as far out as parts five and six.

Actually, once Pinhead and the other cenobites show up, it makes sense. He isn't in the movie much, and focus is more on the lead actress just trying to understand what she had gotten herself in to. It works for the most part.

I was surprised at how gritty this movie was as well. The violence is intense, and there is a good deal of nudity (mostly female, but a bit of male). The sexual edge that was present in the original Hellraiser is back.

Die hard Hellraiser fans will probably hate this movie. It is way more pulpy in feel. It is grittier than Inferno and Hellseeker, but it still lacks the down to earth feel of the first movie, or the fairy tale horror of the second. Still, it works, and delivers in the disturbing imagery, hardcore gore, dark sexuality, and all while keeping some decent acting and a fairly strong script. Not bad at all.

The grittiest and bleakest of the "Hellraiser" saga - in everything from the kind of lighting used to the frequent usage of newspaper/'real-life' type horrors - drug addiction, decaying city slums, suicide, etc. - this is a new feel for the series, and it's a step back up from the good-but-not-great "Hellseeker", although not on level with any of the first five movies.

A newspaper reporter (Kari Wuhrer) who specializes in reporting on - or sensationalizing, depending on your point of view - the above type of happening, receives a videotape purporting to show the suicide and apparant resurrection of a member of a cult called the 'Deaders' and is dispatched by her paper to Romania to investigate. It feels kind of good to take the Hellraiser mythos to Romania, home of Transylvania and thus of Dracula and assorted other movie monsters; though one immediately noticeable flaw is how few people in the movie speak Romanian. I know Europe has a higher multilingual rate than North America, but still...you hear maybe fifteen words of Romanian from bit players and everybody else uses fluent English exclusively. There are no horror movies that I know of filmed in this language and this would have been a great opportunity to give Romanian fans one that's about half in their language (with subtitles of course), half in English. Anyway...

The mood gets darker and bleaker as things move into the rundown sections of Romania, not 'horror-dark' but 'mega-gloomy/nihilistic-dark' and it's a credit to the film's makers that it doesn't veer into the territory of being downright depressing, but avoids that trap and uses the bleakness to its advantage (I feel that 'bleak' is one of the hardest atmospheres to use effectively in a movie).

In my opinion, this is the best horror series ever made. It's dark, witty and sure delves into the human mind, psyche and investigates the grotesqueries of human nature. Everybody knows we are born evil and the series show that not only are we born evil, we also become more and more evil when we do not limit ourselves to an ordinary life.HELLRAISER 1 portrays the life of a depraved individual and how it affects his relatives.HELLRAISER 2 is about a mundane brain surgeon who believes death is the 4th dimension and spares no expense to see what there is beyond this so-called real world.HELLRAISER 3 is about a demon who is free to roam the earth and wreak havoc.HELLRAISER 4 is about the eternal battle between good VS evil that plagues a cursed family through generations because they made the box that opens the gates of hell.From pts. 1 through 4 there's gore galore,graphic violence and plenty of taboo subjects, such as bondage - S&M.HELLRAISER 5 is about a corrupt police officer who seeks the ENGINEER - a faceless serial killer from HELL.HELLRAISER 6 is about troubled Kristy (the cute girl from HELLRAISER 1)and her braindamaged husband who are involved in a riddle.HELLRAISER 7 (this one) is about a sect who worships the DEVIL (aka LEVIATHAN - the LORD OF THE LABYRINTH) and a journalist who investigates mysterious and bizarre incidents.HELLRAISER 8 is about the INTERNET,which is used by the devil to seduce and kill whoever visits HELLWORLD - the website.From pts.5 through 8 , gore is minimal,so is graphic violence.The atmosphere ,though, is still dark, and all HELLRAISER elements are present here - HUMAN BEINGS ARE ABLE TO DO ANYTHING TO PLEASE THEMSELVES.Parts 1, 5,6,7 & 8 are like the HELLRAISER graphic novels published a decade ago.Read more ›

Hellraiser: Deader continues to take the franchise in the direction that Hellseeker did, with a darker tale of morality that Clive Barker had intended for the series. Strong story, strong visuals, strong cast. One of the best horror movies to come out this year.

The scare filled plot is full of twists and turns while continuing to expand on Barker's mythology with some nice inside winks to longtime fans.

True Hellraiser fans will put this in their top three along with Hellraiser and Hellbound followed closely by Hellseeker.

Fans of the cheesier Hellraiser 3 & 4 may be dissappointed in less Pinhead, but less definitely is more in this latest installment given 3 out of four stars from Fangoria Magazine.
