Now I don't know what instalment this is. I've seen the first four Hellraiser movies.
"You played right into my game Professor! - Next week?!"
So the main character is a cop / detective.
He is a bent cop, (dishonest) and he comes into possession of the box, (he'd have to though wouldn't he?!)
He actually strikes me as a bit of a Patrick Bateman character.
He opens the box and goes into some dream like experience.
We see a return of a different formed version of the monster with the chattering teeth, (from the first two movies).
The dialogue is not very strong and very cliche.
Although this was filmed in 2000, it actually seems older!
So far I think the first instalment is a lot superior!
He's an arch manipulator!
"I know what was on it. I know what I saw."
I'm quite annoyed. Pinhead has only briefly been in the movie!
So he goes to see a Shrink.
He seems to be hallucinating a lot!
"You opened the box?!"
- "Yeh. Last night!"
It just doesn't have the same bite so to speak as some of the early Hellraisers!
Is he just going to wake up and its all a dream?! (That would be typical!)
Hell is very obvious in the early instalments but not in this part.
"Go back Joseph. Go home!"
Even though its a short movie, it seems to go on for a long time!
"Who is the King in this game Joseph? That is the question you must ask yourself!"
