Hellraiser 3: Hell on Earth ★★ 1992 (R)

Pinhead is back in this film based on characters created by horrormeister Clive Barker. A strange black box holds the key to sending Pin head back to Hell and is sought by the heroine, a TV newswoman (Farrell). But Pinhead's human henchman, a nasty nightclub owner, isn't going to make things easy. Imaginative special effects and Bradley's commanding presence as Pinhead aid this shocker, which becomes unfortunately mired in excessive gore. An unrated version at 97 minutes is also available. 91m/C VHS, DVD . Doug Bradley, Terry Farrell, Kevin Bernhardt, Paula Marshall, Ken Carpenter, Peter Boynton, Ashley Laurence; D: Anthony Hickox; W: Peter Atkins; C: Gerry Lively.
