After a couple of years on the shelf we finally get to see the 8th film in this once outstanding horror franchise "Hellraiser - Hellworld". The plot seems to be a bit thrown together and with the exceptions of earlier films (Possibly up to "Hellraiser: Bloodline") it is just a poor and unworthy sequel. Mainly I think due to the lack of screen time the "Cenobites" get. They have been almost cameo characters since "Hellraiser: Inferno" and i do feel this is the later films downfall. I think you need a monster to build a horror franchise around (Like Freedy, Jason, Michael Myers) and when these characters have little screen time it becomes boring and only has slightly tenuous links to the series. The later films could have been stand alone features if you take the very slight "Hellraiser" element out. I was quite hopeful after seeing "Hellraiser: Deader" when the "Cenobites" seemed to take a bigger role but we have gone back to normal. I personally think this film should be the last unless as other members have said Clive Barker comes back on board and returns this series to it's peak or the "Cenobites" become more prominent again. Maybe a good final farewell to this series would be like in "Hellraiser: Hellbound" to take the battle into hell itself and kill "Pinhead" off for good. If this film is anything to go by, that would be for the best.
So to sum up, as with the earlier sequels, not terrible and worth a look for any fan, but sadly could have been so much more.
