Overview

Rick Bota directs the sixth entry in the Hellraiser series, Hellseeker, which comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The English soundtrack is impressively rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1. There are no subtitles, but the soundtrack is closed-captioned. Supplemental materials include a commentary track recorded by the director, deleted scenes with optional director commentary, and a featurette on the film's special effects. This is a high quality release from Disney/Buena Vista that should appeal to both fans of Pinhead and genre enthusiasts.

All Movie Guide
Poor Kirsty Cotton (Ashley Laurence): just as she's about to get her life together after escaping the pain-obsessed Cenobites from hell, her husband, Trevor (Dean Winters), drives her into a river in a traffic accident. Trevor recovers but begins having bizarre hallucinations that turn out to be real, and he's a suspect in several murders. Kirsty's body, meanwhile, has vanished. And at this point, the Hellraiser faithful know what's going on, while newcomers may be mystified -- at least briefly. This sixth entry in the 15-year-old franchise is a solid enough genre offering with a few suspenseful surprises, but Pinhead fans will be disappointed by how seldom the Cenobites appear. Veteran director of photography Rick Bota, making his feature-length debut, delivers striking visuals, with a haunting blue wash tinting much of the spooky footage, and he somehow keeps the back-and-forth story coherent. The grotesque finale is borrowed from the first film, but newcomers to the series won't mind. Future installments will want to focus on the franchise's strengths -- Pinhead and his pals -- to keep new fans intrigued and to draw back veteran devotees who were let down by hardly worthy previous installments.
