-- The Best Sequel since Hellbound -- (by dem0nic)
It's a shame to see this sequel being slated for being different. Hellseeker moves away from being another low budget, direct-to-video Hellraiser installment and instead provides an original spin on a dying franchise.This sequel doesn't need cheap gore effects to create a good Horror atmosphere, it also shows Pinhead doesn't need to physically harm his victims to make them suffer, at least not straight away ; this makes Pinhead a more calculated character, watching him toy with his victims emotions!highly recommended!
Visually stunning, a return to form (by ScarecrowX)
Hellraiser: Hellseeker. In directing Hellseeker, the sixth film in the series, Rick Bota returns to Barker's original for inspiration; something that is evident throughout this surreal and brilliantly twisted piece.Much has been made about Ashley Lawrence's return as Kirsty Cotton and some may be disappointed in the small amount of screen time she actually has; however by the films end you can fully appreciate her importance and the final twist should rectify any misgivings you may have had.As with the first two and Inferno this is a movie about ideas and not gore or monsters. The <more>
shocks and 'gory' moments that do occur have a reason behind them; often one that has a moment of clarity towards the end for instance the scene with the eel . Also, the images of blood are portrayed in such a way as to show a beauty in the contrasting reds and its illumination; all things that help connect this to Barker's original.A great deal of love was put into its direction and cinematography; Pinhead once again appears amongst blue, slat lighting and a room decorated with chains. However, this isn't simply a rehash or indeed a vague attempt to emulate the past; the story looks forward and develops Kirsty's character and her relationship with the Cenobites. This is a women whose been held on to by her father, lusted after by her uncle and manipulated by her step-mother; this may be in the past but it all plays into her actions within this film. Kirsty Cotton aside, the real star is Dean Winters who plays her husband Trevor. At first appearing loving and devoted his true colours soon start to show as he undergoes horrific dreams and startling visions; however this isn't the same path Joseph took in Inferno. Whilst the detective knew of his 'infidelities', Trevor's amnesia allows us to learn his real personality as he does himself thus giving us much more sympathy for him, especially in the end where he fully understands who he is. Whilst still not quite up to the heights of the original two films it does maintain the advancing high standards set by Inferno. Once again the human characters are the story and the Cenobites are there simply as a means to an end. Surreal, dark and manipulative, this film is a superior piece of modern day horror. 8 / 10.
If you didnt like Inferno you probably wont enjoy this! It takes an original plot for the Hellraiser series, having Pinhead and friends off screen whilst building up a good suspenful atmosphere which keeps you guessing till the very end! A lot of fans may complain its not a Hellraiser film with the lack of screen time Pinhead makes, but would you rather the Hellraiser sequels be "original and enjoyable whilst still keeping the serious creepiness" or just "crap rip-offs packed with gore, bad acting and no plot!" I know which I prefer ... hopefully the 7th installment will <more>
This is MUCH better than Pinhead fans give it credit for... (by Reverend Flea)
I am a huge Pinhead fan, also very much into the original "Hellraiser" movies. This movie, though far from perfect, was, at least, far more along the original storylines. Yes, most movies nowadays don't have much of an original plot, but I think the real problem is that too many people expected a completely different movie than they got.In the very first Hellraiser movie, Pinhead and the other Cenobites only appear in 3 scenes TOTAL! The point is, Hellraiser is NOT about Cenobites, it is about SUFFERING. The complaint "not enough Pinhead" is the exact same complaint <more>
movie execs at Miramax had of the legendary unreleased version of Bloodline, causing the original director to quit a great movie and have someone else sloppily film a lot more Pinhead scenes and throw it all together.The This movie was FAR better than Inferno, which reduces Pinhead to basically a mafia boss Pinhead would NEVER refer to himself as "The Engineer" because as any true Hellraiser fan knows, they are two completely different entities within Hell . It is better than Hell On Earth, which did give good insight into Pinhead's human past but basically was a slasher flick in the vein of Friday the Thirteenth. While lacking perhaps in the imagination of the original two, the story at least holds up better than Bloodline, so I would have to say that it is about par with that movie, as it has its faults also.Excellent acting by Dean Winters throughout the movie, even though I had figured out a majority of the mystery revolving around Trevor's amnesia I was actually surprised by the twist at the end. The soundtrack was a little uninspired as are most these days and there was a few corny bits within the movie, particularly the "good cop, bad cop" routines with the detectives investigating Trevor's past.Watch Hellraiser and Hellbound again to get back into the mood of the original concept, and never, NEVER forget: Hell is NOT about who you'll meet or by what means you get there, it is forever ONLY about "the sweet suffering!"
far better than it's getting credit for... (by thisisnodream)
It seems like many of the reviews for this film are negative based simply on the fact that it doesn't feel like the original few films in this series. People need to think more about the fact that each film is a new interpretation of the story. I feel this film was really played out well and fairly well acted. By no means is it a classic, but it's a very above par DTV movie. Recommended if you can clear your mind :
Good Flick (by The-Evil-Dead)
First off, don't listen to any of these supposed Hellraiser fans that don't truely understand what the series is about. You hear so many complaints about the movie being slow, not showing enough Pinhead, yank yank... Does anyone remember the first movie? It was slow, virtually plotless, and really didn't have much Pinhead.It just doesn't makes sense to me why so many people bash the newer Hellraiser flicks when the only bad ones were 3 and 5. Everything else has had a decent story.On par acting, on par story, and still the same amount of Pinhead you've come to expect... <more>
This one should please any true fan of Hellraiser simply because it follows the ideals of the first movie well enough. Slow moving pace, interesting plot twists, and general confusion until close to the end kept me interested. Definitely not for everyone, but if you dig Hellraiser you'll dig this.7/10
In a time when horror movies have become direct-to-video crap or cheesy first-run crap, how is it that the Hellraiser movies are among the least noticed and yet probably the most clever and impressive sequel (by Anonymous_Maxine)
The beginning of the fifth Hellraiser sequel raises something of a moral dilemma, which is extremely rare for a horror movie. After the car crash, Trevor, our hero, escapes from the car after it sinks to the bottom of the river and he rushes to the surface to get air, then returns to attempt to save his wife. At that point, my immediate reaction was that he deserves any suffering that comes to him, since he left his wife on the bottom of the river to go and try to save himself. On the other hand, it probably wouldn't have done much good had he remained down there and lost consciousness <more>
right there with her. I guess that's why they tell you on the airlines to secure your own oxygen mask and THEN help your kid.But while this early scene inspired in me an unusually complex combination of thoughts and emotions, it unfortunately is unable to escape from the destructive presence of reality on the possibility of it happening the way it did. I am willing to suspend disbelief on the premise that the guy was screaming at his wife underwater through the window, watching her drown right in front of his blurred eyes and therefore not necessarily able to think all that clearly, but on the other hand, riverbeds have an overwhelming tendency to be covered with big, round, hard, window-breaking rocks.When the investigation begins, things start to get a little strange and we begin to realize that there is something weird about what happened in that crash. Evidently the car was found with the doors open, which puts some serious holes in the story about not being able to get the doors open to save his wife. It turns out that he has come back with a spotted memory, and that the crash that we saw at the beginning of the movie may not have been exactly how the event unfolded. Things seem to have happened that he doesn't remember.I found it highly amusing that the detective that always gave him a hard time because he didn't believe his story was named Detective Gibbons, just because I recently took an Anthropology class in which I learned what a `gibbon' is. I would NOT have been able to keep my cool with this guy though, who was hugely overacting and throwing harsh accusations which were not necessarily unfounded but definitely a little too confident and, if accusations can be this, a little too accusatory.The best thing about this installment in the Hellraiser series is that it works on a psychological level with the main character. Granted, this is nothing new in the horror genre, but it is done very well here. We never know when he is seeing reality, when he's dreaming, when he's having delusions, inaccurate flashbacks, and there is plenty of opportunity for lots of twists and turns, and thankfully these opportunities are not ignored. I hate it when movies do that see Hollow Man . Because of this, we never expect things like the startlingly effecting scare in the vending machine, one of my favorite scares in the movie.Pinhead has thankfully been given a much more prevalent role than he had in the rather disappointing Hellraiser Inferno, the least Hellraiser movie of all of them, and it's morbidly pleasing to see some of the familiar Cenobites return, like Chatterer. The movie closes with the old `leave him and take me' cliché, but as a whole it is a quality entry in the Hellraiser saga. It is well-written, well-thought out almost unheard of for a horror movie these days , and entertaining, and most importantly, it is more than just another cash in on a successful series. There are a lot of horror series' that are well past their time to pass away, but as long as they keep putting this much thought and creativity into the Hellraiser films, I say there is infinite opportunity for sequels.
Surprising! Best sequel since Hellbound. (by evilmatt-3)
I must admit that although I am a huge fan of the first two films, I had pretty much given up on this franchise. Part 3 was just silly. The intriguing potential of part 4 was chopped up into an incoherent mess. Part 5 decided that it was just going to do its own thing and not really be a Hellraiser film. What I'm trying to say here is that my expectations were low.Although _Hellseeker_ isn't as good as _Hellbound_, it's very satisfying because it's the first sequel since that has actually catered to fans of the original two films. Kirsty's resurfacing is a huge factor in <more>
this: the Hellraiser saga was never better than when it was her story. Granted, the focus isn't on her for most of the film. However, we are treated to a peek at her post _Hellbound_ existence as well as some very startling revelations about her character. Without giving anything away, let's just say that what we learn about Kirsty is both incredibly disturbing and undeniably consistent with her previous behavior. Her actions also shift the focus of the franchise away from the moralistic overtones of parts 3, 4, and 5 back into the darker territory of the original Cenobites and their function.The filmmaking itself is adequate, though it leaves much to be desired. In his commentary, director Rick Bota says that Kirsty and the other elements from the previous films have been minimized so as not to alienate people not in the Hellraiser fan base. While this is understandable, I would advise Mr. Bota to remember that the fan base is what is keeping the franchise alive. Don't ignore us. That said, the alternate scenes on the disc need to be in the main film, as they make it more enjoyable for those of us who have been following this thing since 1987.I would have liked to see more of the husband-wife scenes and less creepy _Jacob's Ladder_ stuff. Again the director's fault. Make a note for next time.It would be interesting to see the next film build off of this one. Definitely a film horror fans will enjoy.
Rick Bota's "Hellraiser:Hellseeker" is a straight-to-video horror film that offers plenty of morbid atmosphere.Kirsty Cotton Ashely Laurence is married to Trevor Dean Winters .This guy knows very little about Kirsty's past.He also sees really strange things and is slowly losing contact with reality."Hellraiser:Hellseeker" is easily among the best three "Hellraiser" films.It's surpassed only by the first two films.Unfortunately there is only a little bit of gore,so splatter freaks will be disappointed.In many ways "Hellraiser:Hellseeker" has <more>
a similar look and feel to "Hellraiser:Inferno",in which we find ourselves watching a stark reality that is very much our own.Of course there is also the matter of Pinhead,the Cenobites and the famous puzzle box.However they only make a token appearance toward the movie's end.Still this film is quite good,so if you're a fan of "Hellraiser" movies give it a look.8 out of 10.
