Thread: The Hellraiser Films

  1. #91
    A brief review of Hellraiser Judgement.

    It has some flaws. Mostly of the nit-picky variety. It slows down a little too much towards the end. But overall I thought it was pretty good. There's some fantastic visuals that remind me of Hellbound. The story is fairly different even if on the surface it appears very similar to part 5 (Inferno). Taylor does a good job as Pinhead.

    It had everything going against it and I didn't even realize that this was directed by the same guy who directed the turd that was Within The Rock (which I remember from an episode of Monstervision). But despite literally everything it was a solid film. Easily better than parts 6-9. Sorry Newt, I gave Hellseeker a 2nd chance and still hated it.

    BTW: fanboys of Heather Langemkamp are going to be pissed.

    My ranking of the series would now be thus (from best to worst):

    Hellraiser
    Hellbound: Hellraiser 2
    Hellraiser 5: Inferno
    Hellraiser Judgement
    Hellraiser 3: Hell on Earth
    Everything else





    Hellraiser Revelations.

    Thank you for giving Hellseeker another chance. I got Hellraiser Judgement but haven't watched it yet.

    I'd definitely get on watching Judgement. I'd put it above part 3 because it's a more earnest film in comparison but I might like part 3 more out of nostalgia.

    I'm about half way through the interview with Tunnicliffe and he starts to bash Kevin Yagher (who directed part 4) a bit for coming from a TV background in terms of directing. All I can think of is that "Dude, you directed Within The Rock. What's your excuse?"

    Edit: later on he does admit he's not a great filmmaker but he does learn. So he's at least self-aware.
