That cold open. Holy smokes. Worth the entire price of entry.
Budget constraints are evident, but still looks good. It is pretty clear where the dollars were spent (effects are above par for this type of release vs. where is the rest of the police force?). It also does some solid world building/expanding. Doug Bradley is missed but the sins of Revelations are not revisited.
With this, I’ve made way through the Hellraiser series. I really dig it. I think all the sequels, especially the DTV ones, get a bad wrap. Upon further reflection, I wonder if it could unseat my favorite horror franchise, Friday the 13th. Hmmm...
Pointless nitpick- why does everyone that pick up the box outline the circle with their thumb? And does that open the box? Did I miss the point in the series where they explain how that opens the box? It was a puzzle box at the beginning of the series, right?
