A young woman must confront the sadistic, supernatural forces behind an enigmatic puzzle box responsible for her brother’s disappearance.
The best thing:
The new Pinhead and the Cenobites have a new fleshy tortured look instead of the BDSM look of the much beloved 80’s version starring Doug Bradley. Jamie Clayton as The Priest or Pinhead holds her own. The plot surrounding the evolution of the puzzle box is greater than the original movies, unless I missed something from the 80’s version. The plot was masterfully done. The cast was easy on the eyes. Check out the editorial on this piece since Pinhead and this franchise has been a staple of fright chest.
The worst thing:
The movie’s story was very typical. Although it was something straight out of an 80’s horror story line, the plot points and story elements made up for it (See Best Thing). There is not much that i can say that is wrong or is the worst thing about the movie except for the typical B-Horror. See the editorial piece that is a bit more spoilery.
This movie is recommended because it felt more of a reboot of the franchise that had mundane sequel after mundane sequel. The real capture of the movie will be the puzzle box and the cenobites.
Overall: (3 / 5)
