This is hysterical
Howdy folks! I need to set something straight about the fourth installment of the Hellraiser series. This movie blows away Hellraiser II by far. Hellraiser III was better than the second one. Its plot as well as Doug Bradley’s spectacular acting ability tend to keep the viewer awake. The problem with Hellraiser three is that several portions of the film watch almost like a cheesy eighties metal video. Many of the cenobites were also dissapointing. Hellraiser: Bloodline was supposed to close this book for good.
Hellraiser 3 and 4 both suck… Badly. That is not to say that 1 and 2 were masterpieces, but they were entertaining and were based on decent screenplays, etc.
Finally, Director Alan Smithee takes the reins of this mighty series and steers Barker’s conception back onto the path. Unlike directors previously assigned to project: Hellraiser, Smithee ignores the storyline involving the Kirsty Cotton character.”
HAHAHAHA! “Director Alan Smithee”, is this guy a complete clue-bag? “Smithee ignores the storyline”… Wow. Yeah, I really respect the director of this film, who chose to leave his name off of it it was so poor… :)
