The effects were quite good too, all things considered. I liked it more than anything post Bloodline, barring that nice twist in Hellseeker. It's a shame Bradley wasn't involved because that's the main thing holding the movie back.
People can huff and puff about the film all they want but at least the damn thing feels like a Hellraiser film.
The cinematography by David Armstrong is excellent and the practical gore is nice.
Sadly the wannabe Pinhead and poor acting from most of the cast holds it back but I'd still watch it over any of the sequels past Bloodline.
