4.0 out of 5 stars "..FUN SEQUEL.."
Hellworld is the 8th Hellraiser film in the series, straight to DVD sequel again as they have all been since part 5. The story is pretty good and has another slightly different twist than previous films, the Cenobites are under used and Doug Bradley plays pinhead for around 5 minutes of screen time max, these sequels are not meant to be viewed like the originals they are...

DVD Info.

Trivia.
1)Lance Henriksen is better known as the Android Bishop in Aliens.
2)Henry Cavill is now playing the lead role of Superman/Clark Kent in the latest DC reboot: Man Of Steel
3)Final film to feature Doug Bradley as Pinhead

What's The Story.
A group of role-playing gamers' fantasies turn horrifyingly real when teenage fans construct a virtual online 'Hellworld', Pinhead invites the group to a suitably themed party, where he quickly sets about turning their reality into a nightmare they'll never forget.

Timelord Thoughts.
This Eighth & final movie in the original Hellraiser franchise is a terrible mess & ties with 'Deader' as the worst movie of the franchise, not even the usual reliable acting from Lance Henriksen can save this movie from oblivion & Superman star Henry Cavill must wish he could omit this film completely from his CV.

The acting is ownright abysmal, Pinhead has more or less become Freddy Krueger & Doug Bradley seems to now do these films only for the money as he's no longer scary or terrifying as the demonic Cenobite; Pinhead who appears for all but 3 minutes & doesn't terrorize anyone which makes his actual appearances quite pointless.

The plot is so cliche riddled,predictable & lacklustre that it's just a load of incoherent nonsense, 'Hellseeker' & 'Deader' returnee director Rick Bota adds nothing memorable or standout here & the only scary thing about this movie is that it actually got released at all.

I can't believe how Dimension have treated the Hellraiser fans so badly with these last two so called Hellraiser movies as the makers simply don't care in alienating the franchises target audience & have turned a once respected franchise into a complete & utter joke & destroyed all the credibility this iconic horror franchise once had.

Timelord Rating.
1/10

Hellworld is the 8th Hellraiser film in the series, straight to DVD sequel again as they have all been since part 5. The story is pretty good and has another slightly different twist than previous films, the Cenobites are under used and Doug Bradley plays pinhead for around 5 minutes of screen time max, these sequels are not meant to be viewed like the originals they are stories set within the Hellraiser mythology and feature pinhead, but the main thing is there , the puzzle box and the taking your soul to hell theme that comes with it, great for any true fan who can understand what has been done here but anyone else will probably tune out and not get it purely based on watching the original and not remembering the under theme of the series!! There is some good gore scenes and the ending is a good pay off for fans.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite, 14 May 2013
By 
This review is from: Hellraiser VIII: Hellworld [DVD] (DVD)
Hellraiser has had a mixed array of sequels from the terrific to the silly, Hellworld is silly. Wes Craven's New Nightmare faux kind of story where Pinhead and the Cenobites are portrayed as fictional by the characters...interesting but in my opinion it fails. Usually the case with direct DVD sequels is their poorly cast and have at least some idea where the story is going, here we have the opposite...a fantastic cast with Doug Bradley, Lance Henricksen and Cavill who would later go on to star in Immortals, Man of Steel etc...but a pretty poor story that doesnt seem to flow. Its not all bad its the last film to star Bradley as Pinhead and the cenobites as usual look as cool as ever with some gruesome gore. The acting for the most part is consistently good in quality. As far as sequels go the Hellraiser franchise doesnt have very many bad sequels so we should be at least thankful.

And so my quest to watch the Hellraiser sequels continues, although up until now I've been mildly surprised, don'y get me wrong they're not great, but have been watchable. Until I watched this one. My interest was piqued when I saw Lance Henrikson's name on the credits as he's usually entertaining to watch, but while he is the best part of the film he isn't enough on his own to lift it.

The main issue is that it's fairly standard horror with the Hellraiser element being little more than branding for a fairly pedestrian series of deaths. The setup was mildly interesting in that there is an online game based on the cenobite mythos, winning the game grants an invitation to a Hellworld party and it's at the party that the victims meet the host, played by Lance Henrikson.

There are a few twists along the way, but for the most part it lacks imagination. The cenobite appearences are little more than slasher murders and lack the disturbing pain/pleasure combination that the series is famed for.

Eventually we reach the end and there's a series of reveals that managed to raise an eyebrow, but only in congratulation to myself at predicting their occurence. I've not watched them all, but for me this is the worst Hellraiser sequel yet.

2.0 out of 5 stars How's that for a wake up call!!!, 31 Mar 2014
This review is from: Hellraiser VIII: Hellworld [DVD] (DVD)
Unfortunately the demise of the series since Hellraiser-3 continues.
The only part of this film that i enjoyed was the end, there are very few cenobite scenes and it reminds me of a poor version of the Blair Witch Project.
This is one of the worst of the bad Hellraiser films in my opinion.

But other than that there's precious little to reccommend here. However Christopher Jacot is nice to look at. And the death scenes are sweet. All in all slightly better than the other Hellraiser sequel I recently bought. Lance Henriksen is as awesome as he ever has been.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hellworld?, 10 Jun 2013
This review is from: Hellraiser VIII: Hellworld [DVD] (DVD)
This must be the most ridiculous title for a classic series clearly losing its substance after the first three films Makes you wonder where the idealism and sense went to, when today the film industry appears to be financially strained to say the least.
