Trivia

The scene in which Trevor is frightened by the arm in the vending machine was originally planned to feature Kirsty in the machine, and was to be shot underwater. Ashley Laurence was ambivalent about filming underwater shots, and thus the filmmakers filmed the "arm version" as backup. See more »

Goofs

When Trevor is "giving himself in" to Sage, she is lying on top of him even though only moments before he had several acupuncture needles in his stomach. See more »

-- The Best Sequel since Hellbound --
5 July 2004 | by (Liverpool) – See all my reviews

It's a shame to see this sequel being slated for being different. Hellseeker moves away from being another low budget, direct-to-video Hellraiser installment and instead provides an original spin on a dying franchise.

This sequel doesn't need cheap gore effects to create a good Horror atmosphere, it also shows Pinhead doesn't need to physically harm his victims to make them suffer, at least not straight away ;) this makes Pinhead a more calculated character, watching him toy with his victims emotions!

highly recommended!
