HELLRAISER: HELLWORLD (R)
MIRAMAX FILMS (2005)
Starring: Lance Henriksen, Katheryn Winnick, Christopher Jacot, Khary Payton, Doug Bradley.
This is the eight installment of the Clive Barker HELLRAISER series. In this one a group of friends
get sucked into playing some online cyber games. They then get an invite to a special party. They
don't know who the host is or why they were chosen, but they still decide to go. Once they arrive
everything thing seems typical of a regular party. They soon find out who the host is and he slowly
reveals why they were chosen. They find out they were brought to sacrifice their souls to Pinhead
and the rest of the Cenobites. This film plays off as a little different than the rest of the franchise.
It's done more like a teen slasher film than the dark demonic and horrific version of the first few
films. There isn't much of the Cenobites presence in this one either. The film is still pretty decent,
but not as good as the first four films!
