Movie Info

Clive Barker's sinister creation Pinhead returns again in this horror outing, the eighth feature in the Hellraiser franchise. A handful of teenagers have become big fans of the latest Hellraiser video game -- so much so that they create a tribute website called "Hellworld.com," which simulates a digital Lament Configuration in cyberspace. However, Pinhead (Doug Bradley) is not at all happy with this turn of events, and decides to take action agaist the young people, luring them to a "party" where their frightening fantasies become a far more disturbing reality. Hellraiser: Hellworld also stars Lance Henriksen, Katheryn Winnick, Christopher Jacot, and Henry Cavill.

    This instalment in the Hellraiser series is a very poor attempt to deliver effective horror. The film contains all the ingredients of your typical horror film. Hellworld is a pathetic attempt at keeping the series going, and unfortunately this isn't the last sequel in the series. Hellworld though a bad film, had a pretty interesting idea, unfortunately the filmmakers can't seem to make it work to effectively build the scares that you'd expect from a Hellraiser film. The concept is interesting, but the execution is poor. Director Rick Bota can't seem to deliver anything that would be of interest. Hellworld is a horrible film, though the concept is interesting, it doesn't go nowhere. Hellworld just goes to show that it doesn't matter whether the script is horrible, the filmmaker won't try to make a good film. The film is poorly made, and it just goes to show that the filmmakers simply didn't care if this film would be good or bad; as long as they made money with this crap sequel, that's all they cared about. This a film that like many in the series, uses the typical clichéd formula to try and create the horror. Sometimes it works, sometime it doesn't. In the case of Hellworld, it doesn't. This film is boring, and uninspired direct to DVD trash. The Hellraiser series becomes more dull with each straight to DVD sequel, and films like Hellword are proof of that.

    The premise is asinine but what else to expect when you've reached the eighth instalment of a franchise that ran out of ideas several movies before. This was clearly made to make up for the unexceptional 'Hellraiser: Deader' by way of saturating the picture with oceans of blood and gore and uncalled for nudity. Generic and dumb beyond all comprehension characters being slaughtered to make up for a pathetic set up and absence of story that really has nothing to do with Pinhead, he just happens to make a cameo? No thanks.

    Henry Cavill plays Mike Christopher Jacot plays Jake & Katheryn Winnick plays Chelsea 3 of 5 friends (if you want to call them that) that lose their friend Adam to The Hell world online game. Lance Henriksen (millennium) plays the ?Host with the most? at the Leviathan House Hell world Party that you are only invited to via the game. Some want to go more than others, and some are on their own agendas. Of course Pinhead & The cenobites are in this (sporadically) well at least they killed one cliché? They saved something for the last then somewhat a twist. However There?s key things on arrival that I noticed so well?.First death ah a vampire coven would love it! Other than that bit I don?t want to go on in case you might be interested.(If you are a fan of the Tudors or Henry Cavill?(& if you are of the Tudors how can you NOT be of him :p ) Give it a go. I couldn?t believe it was him (this you can at least recognize him in. Tristan & Isolde..not as well.) Well When did the first Pinhead movie come out? At this point they?re beyond predictable & I?m sure usually straight to DVD just for the Cult geeks. (speaking of which really have got to figure what order they are in to watch them in order) anyway basically a D for like I said I?m sure a straight to dvd (& bascally DOOMed to repeat itself thereafter

    The weakest film of the series, and also marked the first time where a bunch of disposable teenagers are the main characters, which is a very bad thing, a "Hellraiser" film finally succumbing into slasher film stereotypes. Even Pinhead is using butcher knives in this one, and the twist is predictable. It's cool though to imagine Pinhead as a software developer.Ha!
