31 Days of Halloween - Day 22 - Movie 3
After finding a lament configuration at a crime scene, a corrupt cop (Craig Scheffer) finds himself hallucinating and at the center of a series of murders, which he believes are somehow connected to someone called the Engineer.
Hellraiser: Inferno (2000) is the fifth film in the franchise. It starts out with some promise, but as it progresses it gets more and more repetitive, and also more and more like an existing script for a completely unrelated movie was rewritten to be shoehorned into the franchise. It uses none of the mythology of the previous movies and the cenobites are in no way an essential part of the story. It has a good cast who are mostly wasted in this subpar movie that believes it's something smarter than it is.
