Hellraiser 7 : Deader (2005)
Director: Rick Bota
Main Stars: Kari Wuhrer, Paul Rhys, Simon Kunz, Doug Bradley, Georgina Rylance
Storyline: A journalist gets entrapped into the underground world of the cenobites
Review (Spoils): Hot babe journalist Amy (Kari Wuhrer) is looking for her hot story and she comes across a videotape that shows an underground culture that can bring back the dead back to life. This all tracks down to a leader named Winter (Paul Rhys) who is controlling them. An ex member of the cult named Maria (Georgina Rylance) invites Amy to come to Romania but when she gets there Maria is dead with the puzzle box in her hands. Amy of course takes the puzzle box and opens it and unleashes Pinhead (Doug Bradley) and his evil cenobites.
First off Kari Wuhrer is smoking hot and I have been a fan boy of hers since her early Mtv days so that to me is a win. But overall this storyline and series has gone to the shitter. We have a total lack of Pinhead which is too bad as Doug Bradley is back to grace the screen but really like 30 seconds of screen time? Is this film horrible? Not really but there is better when it comes to the Hellraiser series. The Deaders was a neat idea and we do have some blood but you feel the low budget of the film and it almost sits on a made for TV movie.
Rating: We have Kari Wuhrer so can’t complain but man the cenobites could have used some more air time on this low budget film. You would almost think this was not a Hellraiser film.
