Not total trash but the protagonist barely does anything and the third act becomes a comedy complete with a Cenobite rattling off a one-liner. Fairly well made from the material but weakly written.
Sad to see a series with such potential follow the same path of would-be comedic excess that ruined the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise.
Hey, it's JP Monroe! A bit more 90s Hollywood than the first two, but still quite good. Has that Warlock 2 and Waxwork feel since it was directed by the same person. The series still survives even into the underrated part 4. This is like the Return of the Jedi for the Hellraiser series.
Hellraiser III ended up being better than I had been lead to believe. Sure none of the sequels touched the greatness of parts I and II, but I still thought Hell on Earth was an entertaining film. Doug Bradley is great and even though the second half of the movie is a mess, there are some great special makeup effects throughout the film. I would definitely recommend this movie to fans of the series.
It’s funny... definitely not as good as the first one but better then the second one in my opinion. Pinhead in an early 90’s grunge/rock setting? Gotta love it lol. Ending gets a bit sensationalized and probably could’ve been simpler but this is pretty good, especially for a third horror sequel.
