Day 51

Movie: Hellraiser 4 Bloodline
Starring: Bruce Ramsay, Doug Bradley
Genre: Horror, Sci-Fi
Year: 1996
Format: DVD

Plot: One family has the knowledge to create the puzzlebox that opens the gate to hell.  As we jump from the 1770's to the 1990's to the year 2127, we follow John Merchant through the centuries as he comes face to face with Pinhead.

This starts off with so much promise, but quickly gets bogged down. We're introduced to so many minor characters in the first half of the story, that by the time Pinhead makes his appearance you're wondering which way he's going to lean.

This really plays a heavy hand to the side of temptation. The gore is still there for the bloodhounds, but it lacks the mindbinding psychosis that other movies in the series have.

What do I think I learned from this film?
You can not runaway from your destiny even when you really didn't ask for it. And karma is a bitch.
