Hellraiser VII: Deader Review
Another Hellraiser thriller! What the hell is happening to this glorious series?!! as for Hellraiser 5 and 6, the script for this movie was not originally written for Hellraiser but was just modified from an original horror script…utterly disappointing! Again, the story is not too bad in itself, but this not Hellraiser…and it gets very boring to watch at times!
With that said its no secret that “Deader” was an already existing screenplay that was “tweaked” by the filmmakers to fit within the Hellraiser universe. Sadly it freaking showed. The “Pinhead” moments felt forced and out of place whilst the side Cenobites were lazily tossed our way (why even bother). To make matters more painful, the “Hellraiser” elements actually went on to dilute the main narrative line, taking precious screen time away from it. I was interested in the Deader cult plotline and wanted to delve deeper into it! I was never given the chance since the film was too busy trying to tell two tales at once. Consequence: it never came through fully one way or another.
My final peeve had to to with the overplaying of one trick. Picture this: a horror scene builds up around our heroine, the stakes are high, we’re reaching the crescendo, the uppercut is coming and then…we cut away to the lead waking up somewhere else. BUGH! The device worked the first two times but after that, it became a cheap and tired ploy.
Directed by the man that made Sinister, the worst Hellraiser in my opinion.
