The story concerns two college age guys, Steve and Nico, who travel to Mexico in the hopes of drinking and getting laid. In the process the pair encounter a pretty local girl and after some rough bathroom stall sex she is slain. As the events unfold it becomes clear the murder isn’t an accident. Involved in the mayhem once again is Pinhead and the Cenobites. The confused screenplay trots out a cavalcade of obnoxious characters yet Hellraiser: Revelations lacks the coherence of the earlier films, though it is as equally gruesome.
This is a hardcore horror film definitely not intended for the squeamish. Those accustomed to the high-bar established by the previous outings will be greatly disappointed. In fairness the make-up and creature designs are startling, and Pinhead is still a menacing sight. Expectedly the filmmakers leave the door open for another sequel.
