Two friends in Mexico discover the Lament Configuration and unleash Pinhead, but one decides to try to survive by swapping himself with someone else. Once they go missing, family members go in search of them but find Pinhead instead.
- The film reportedly received a very silent and limited theatrical showing in California on March 17th 2011, where it apparently only opened to one theater (!?) and for one night only.
- Peta Wilson (La Femme Nikita series) was once rumored to be starring.
- It's said that the studio went ahead with a sequel instead of the proposed remake because they were going to lose the rights to the franchise, as they were on a deadline.
- Character Breakdown: DR. ROSS CRAVEN - Early 40s, handsome, a family man. His son disappeared two years ago and it has been a hard road back to family stability. He is a good man that has fought hard to keep his family together.
Character Breakdown: EMMA 18 - daughter of Ross and Sarah. She is lovely and inquisitive and on the verge of her own womanhood.
Character Breakdown: STEVEN 20 - son of Ross and Sarah. He is a seeker, a true misanthrope. After he graduated high school, he went on a backpacking trip with his friend Nico through Mexico, where he was presented with a choice to "experience a reality beyond current existence" and the puzzle box is presented and Pinhead becomes his master.
Character Breakdown: NICO 20 - Steven's best friend and travelling partner. Once Nico realizes that the commitment to Pinhead is FOREVER, he attempts a daring switch plan to release himself from the puzzlebox.
Character Breakdown: ENGINEER - Male with dark olive skin, cloudy eyes. He is creepy looking, a man that has lived on the streets for years. The Engineer is a man of mysterious origins, and it is this man that draws the curious souls into Pinhead's reality.
Character Breakdown: MALE CENOBITE - Male 20-30s, British accent, Caucasian, very pale, tall and thin, the actor should be comfortable in full body makeup along with special effects contact lenses, face and head special effect makeup. Stunt background / experience a plus.
Character Breakdown: PSEUDO-PIN HEAD - Tall and very thin, deathly pale, in his early 20s. Should be comfortable in full body makeup (head covering, etc.), and tight fitted black leather clothing. This pseudo pinhead is such a devoted servant of Pinhead, he mimics his appearance as closely as possible, and revels in the pain that leads to his pleasure. Stunt background / experience a plus.
Character Breakdown: FEMALE CENOBITE - Tall and thin, this actor should have training in contemporary dance / ballet / mime / as well as be able to work within an environment of sensory deprivation (vision will be impaired within this character's mask). The actor cannot be claustrophobic in any way, as this character wears full body makeup, wears a mask that covers her entire head and face throughout the film. This character can only communicate though body language and movement. She is a haunting presence in the film and conveys all emotion through her body movement. This female cenobite is also a devoted slave to Pinhead.
- Doug Bradley declined to participate in the sequel, as he feels that the studio is rushing the project and not seriously attempting to revive the franchise.
- Actor Doug Bradley will not reprise his role as the infamous Pinhead, and there's no word whether another actor will take his place or if Pinhead will show up in the film at all.
- Director Victor Garcia also worked on Return to House on Haunted Hill and Mirrors 2.
- Writer Gary Tunnicliffe has worked with the FX for all the previous Hellraiser installments, starting with the third.
- Said to have a small budget that's going to be "balls to the wall."
- Much like the previous straight-to-DVD sequels, this is a stand-alone film.
- No relation to the proposed Hellraiser remake.
