Sweet Suffering Pt 7 (Hellraiser: Deader, 2005)

Hellraiser_Deader_PosterAmy is a hardened reporter who is provided with a shocking video tape of a cult in Romania in which young teens are committing suicide and then being brought back to life by their mysterious leader. She heads off to Bucharest to find the truth of the story.

Much like the prior two films, Deader was not part of the Hellraiser films originally. Once decided, they added a quick back story that tied the cult leader to the toymaker mythos established back in the fourth film.

Hellraiser: Deader is incredibly disjointed, with all of the Pinhead stuff feeling forced into the story.Bradley gets a few snappy moments towards the end, but largely, his presence feels very much like an afterthought.

I guess I would not declare the film as being outright terrible…but it is not all that interesting to watch either. And it certainly adds little to the franchise.
