The Story

The film begins in the year is 2127 aboard the Minos space station.  Dr. Paul Merchant (Bruce Ramsay) is using a robot to solve the box and summoning the Cenobites to the station. At the same time, troops have enter the station and Merchant is taken prisoner.

As he is being interrogated, he begins explain the history behind the "Lament Configuration". It seems that his ancestor Phillip Le Merchant, a toy maker was commissioned by Duc de L'Isle, the greatest French magician, to create the box. Little did Le Merchant know that it will serve as a key to opening the gates of hell. After witnessing the terror of his creation, Le Merchant sets out to design a box that will send the demons back to hell, the "Elysium Configuration".  He is later killed by a demon before he can complete the box, but his pregnant wife escapes to America with the plans.

MY RANKING IN THE SERIES: #3

 The filmmakers probably had more trouble getting this "Hellraiser" into the theaters than the previous 3 combined. It got so bad that Kevin Yagher, the director, had his name taken off the film and replaced it with a pseudonym "Alan Smithee", because of his displeasure with the films final cut. This film had a lot of potential. I really like the telling of the "Lament Configuration" origin, but the story got a little funky when the demon of the 18th century looked nothing like the Cenobites of today. The ending was descent, but where do we go from here???? Hopefully, not to another sequel unless Clive Barker directs.
