HELLRAISER: HELLSEEKER (2002)

Following in the footsteps of Part 5, HELLRAISER: HELLSEEKER is about a dude living a fucked up reality where he's seeing visions and monsters and nothing is what it seems. This time around you got a guy who lost his wife (Kirsty from the original film) in a mysterious car accident. He wakes up in the hospital and nobody knows where his wife is. Her body wasn't found after the accident. So now for like the next 70 minutes it's just this dude wandering around seeing shit, talking to people and listening to crappy rock music on the city bus. It's boring.

Not a bad film, but not a horror film either. It's more of a psychological thriller with some horror visuals and a brief appearance by Pinhead. I watch HELLRAISER movies to see Pinhead going around talking shit and torturing people, not this insurance salesman looking guy moping around all butthurt and sad until finally at the very end of the movie Pinhead shows up and does his thing. If you like 3rd-rate JACOB'S LADDER ripoffs with a Pinhead cameo then watch it, as for me, I'll be in my room watching JACOB'S LADDER.

Part 1 - Hellraiser
Part 2 - Hellbound: Hellraiser II
Part 3 - Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth
Part 4 - Hellraiser: Bloodline

Looks like ol' boy from THE BEYOND.
