Review: Hellraiser 3 and Hellraiser Bloodlines

After the cenobite onslaught of Hellraiser (1) we here at swut decided we wanted more! The local vid shop didn't have HR2 so we had to settle for 3 and 4 instead. While watching these wasn't a complete waste of time, they were basically 0 taco movies with our old friend Pinhead providing all the entertainment with his silly heads and demoni-aristocratic rhetoric.

Hellraiser 3 and Bloodlines arguably give the viewer too much of a good thing - it's all pinhead (along with some new friends of his) - while in Hellraiser (1) the pinhead exposure level was kept to a minimum, thus adding to the mystique and aura of the man. Too much pinhead doesn't detract - like a teaspoon of nutella compared to half a jar, he's better in small doses.

hellraiser3 was also the movie debut for actor TERRY FARRELL. she plays the reporter who finds out too much. She later went onto ST Deep Space 9 and co-stars on the sitcom BECKER.
