Movie Info

Three generations of the same family deal with the consequences of unleashing the forces of hell. In 18th-century France, Paul L'Merchant (Bruce Ramsay) works as a toymaker until he's coerced into creating a box that serves as a portal between hell and Earth. The box summons demonic Angelique (Valentina Vargas) and Pinhead (Doug Bradley), who -- 200 years later -- hunt down John Merchant (Bruce Ramsay). Then, centuries later, Phillip Merchant (also Ramsay) prepares for a final confrontation.

Audience Reviews for Hellraiser - Bloodline

    Third sequel in the popular horror franchise. In Bloodline we find out the inventor/toymaker behind the infamous configuration puzzle box that lets Pinhead and his cronies through from hell. Something Pinhead would like to become a permanent fixture but to do that he must destroy the bloodline of the inventor that has been carried on throughout the years. This starts in the future with another ascendant of the bloodline trying to destroy Pinhead at a space station before going back, thats not as confusing as it might sound though. Overall, although obviously not some big cinematic achievement, Hellraiser Bloodline is another fairly solid entry and one that fans of the iconic Pinhead should enjoy.

    Why make crap like this, although it has good special effect, but story wise it is not as good as the predecessors

    Hellraiser: Bloodline is one of the best Hellraiser sequels. The film is notable for the Pinhead in space concept. In this fourth entry we get a glimpse of how the puzzle box came into existence which is truly interesting. The box's origins are traced back to toy maker Phillip Lemarchand. The film shows the box's as they are passed on from person to person over the centuries right up to a space station. Many people have dismissed this sequel, but I really don't understand why. The film is very engaging, gory, scary and above all interesting. The film leaves a lot of ideas unfinished due to the budget concerns, however for what it is, Hellraiser: Bloodline is a step up off its previous film, and is the best sequel since part 2. Clive Barker produces this film, and it's a good thing as well because his ideas and imagination is what makes the Hellraiser films (at least the ones he's involved in) worth seeing. It's obvious when he stopped producing Hellraiser sequels, the series started suffering. But Bloodline is a sequel that fans might actually enjoy if they can get passed the budget restraints and B grade acting. This film is quite enjoyable and manages to be a strong sequel despite its flaws. But I wouldn't go ahead and call this film a classic by any means, but I would definitely call it a pleasant time waster.

    How can any Hellraiser film get under 4 stars especially on the night before Halloween. . Not from me, but this one was close as Pinhead pops up way way in the future in outer space. But the story goes from outer space back to the past. Which saved this movie. Anyway only one from the past to show up was Pinhead, but some new cenobites were created, as usual unreal special effects and make up. Others might rate lower but I a Hellraiser fan have to sick with a 4 star rating .
