The youngsters Chelsea, Allison, Derrick and Mike are grieving the suicide of their friend Adam, who became obsessed with an internet game called Hellworld. Their former friend Jake blames the group since they have not stopped playing the game even when Adam was unstable. When they receive an invitation to a Hellworld party in an isolated mansion, the reluctant Chelsea decides to join the group and they surprisingly find Jake in the party. He explains that he was invited by a girl he met in a chat room. They are hosted by the owner of the place, who shows them his private macabre collection. Along the night, they find that they are in a party in hell. Written by

The script was adapted from a treatment titled "Dark Can't Breathe," which was unrelated to the Hellraiser series. See more »
After the Host is taken to hell, Chelsea and Jake are shown driving down the road. At first there is no license plate visible on the rear door of her SUV. A few shots later the license plate appears. See more »
I found this a refreshing change of pace for the Hellraiser series. After Hellraiser Bloodline, each of the new additions to the series have been different and capable of standing on their own as a story and this one is no exception. The actors play the parts they need to in an acceptable to better than average fashion and the story unfolds at a good pace which leads to an unexpected climax. I wonder at some of the commentary left about this film-- I wonder if the people who slammed it so heavily really understood it. As for me- this was an unexpectedly good addition to the Hellraiser series. If you are a devotee of Hellraiser, you owe it to yourself to ignore some of the negative reviews and just see and judge this one for yourself. 10 stars for an inventive and original storyline.
