“Hellraiser Hellworld” Review

Hellraiser: Hellworld: Directed by Rick Bota. With Stelian Urian, Katheryn Winnick, Anna Tolputt, Khary Payton. Gamers playing a MMORPG based on the “Hellraiser” films find their lives endangered after being invited to a rave, the host of which intends to show them the truth behind the Cenobite mythos.

Another straight to VHS / DVD special that actually turned out to be a pretty ok horror / slasher film and somewhat ok addition to the Hellraiser franchise. Most surprising to me was seeing a very young Henry Cavil as one of group that’s destined to die. There’s some pretty lame attempts at making a digital connection, but for the most part all the pieces work and it’s a ton of fun. I particularly enjoyed seeing Lance Henriksen as the “host” of the party and got a good laugh at the way he died, which was a clear echo of his death in 1986’s “Aliens”. The cellphone dating things was hella stupid and shouldn’t have been included in the film at all.
