Hellraiser III (1992)

hellraiser-3-posterBy Scott Goldfine

Horror master Clive Barker’s “Hellraiser III, Hell on Earth,” is a cut above its predecessor, but not nearly as intense or disturbing as the original. This installment pits an investigative reporter against Pinhead — the ultimate bloodthirsty villain.

The special effects and gory makeup are the most impressive in the series, but the film’s upended by a rote story and flaccid direction. Rated R.

GRADE: C+
