This addition is the subtlest and therefore it moves away from that with which we are familiar. Because Pinhead and the Cenobitesí power have an undermined scope, the film doesnít contradict the logic of its five predecessors. The film is somewhat based upon Hellraiser: Inferno because it constantly jumps from reality to dream and back.
Pinhead and his auxiliaries are only marginally present. The scenario could even have taken place without them. Because of the movieís type, the plot should have become clearer as the film advanced but it is quite the contrary that happens. The conclusion explains (a pitiful explanation at best) the phenomenon but the recap wonít please you at all. As a matter of fact, we saw this enlightenment coming but tried to chase it out of our heads because it was too naÔve and too strewn with paradoxes. Kristy, the first two filmsí hero, returns but her five-minute appearance is much too short.
The violence in the film is up to par, the actors are good and the jumps between reality and dream (and between different time periods) are well orchestrated but too repetitive.
