The Hellraiser film series, including the most recent installment, is graded from worst to greatest (2022).
Rank Order of the Films (Including those releasing in 2022)
In honor of the upcoming release of Hellraiser (2022), the next installment in one of the most recognizable horror film series, we have compiled a list ranking all the films from worst to most significant. All of the franchise films have been rated below.
Hellraiser: Hellworld (2005)
Hellworld is the poorest of the movies, but at least it has enough blood and guts, even if it has a convoluted plot and a weak narrative.
Hellraiser: Revelations (2011)
Again, the writing is DVD-ready. Though there are bright spots, we can undoubtedly claim that there were some BLOODY highlights.
Hellraiser: Hellseeker (2002)
Hellseeker’s major flaw is that it lacks cohesion and direction. We are at a loss to identify this film’s genre, but it certainly does not follow the formula that viewers have come to expect. Good times are infrequent.
Hellraiser: Deader (2005)
Deader, which is positioned amid the list of the best Hellraiser films, finally begins to take itself seriously. There are some funny parts. The screenplay isn’t perfect and doesn’t quite deliver, but it makes an effort, and that’s about all the fans could have asked for.
Hellraiser: Judgement (2018)
If you’re a fan of the series, Judgement is a solid addition that does its best to restore the series to its previous grandeur. It doesn’t quite get there, but it adds a horrible twist to the experience.
III: Hell On Earth (1992)
There are several spectacular passages in Hell on Earth, especially at the nightclub. The death scenes and realistic effects in this one make it so eerie and gory. Even if the storyline becomes worse at this point, the movie still has some excellent scares.
Hellraiser: Bloodline (1996)
The inclusion of Bloodline in the series was a mistake. With its setting in outer space, this story is sure to pique your interest. We’re in for some scary science fiction.
Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988)
It was a terrific sequel, and it continued to be a nuanced narrative with excellent visuals, although the writing was sloppy and had some plot holes. It’s still worth viewing, if only for the blood and guts.
Jamie Clayton has put her stamp on the Hell Priest (also known as Pinhead). The actual effects are still practical even if the film is set in 2022. The narrative and the Cenobites themselves are eerie. It’s not the greatest at first, but it’s hard to beat once it gets going.
It’s true what they say about the original: nothing can compare. Intense fear is felt throughout the first film. Its exploration of humanity’s murky values makes it seem almost futuristic. It’s a fun bloodbath and the benchmark for the series’s realistic effects.
