Rotten: ...moronic...

- David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews, Saturday, June 30, 2007

Rotten: The main characters wander into every room they don't belong in, and following the Hollywood guidebook for the terminally clichd, they always wander alone.

- John J. Puccio,, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Rotten: Theres a lot less story to Hellworld, although it does deliver in the sordid elements youd want from a horror film - sex, violence and nudity.

- Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures, Thursday, June 24, 2010

"Like a bad horror movie, isn't it?" Yes, yes, its Hellraiser 8. I cant believe they made 8 sequels. It doesnt follow the Hellraiser story line & the Cenobites only make brief appearances, but theres a Hellraiser (Hellworld) internet game, a Hellraiser (Leviathan) House and guess who shows up? Doug Bradley & Lance Henriksen star, shame shame on Doug.

This movie feels like what a shitty Hellraiser sequel should be. Silly and slightly more contemporary with enough blood and gore to shut us up for at least the duration of the film. I enjoyed this movie a lot more just due to Lance Henriksen's performance.
