An enjoyable sequelBy DJM666 (276 reviews) from Walsall , 25 Sep 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]
[Highly rated reviewer]Hellraiser 6 is a look into the fractured mind of the main character, Trevor, after a fatal car crash kills his wife Kirsty, and has suitable performances from Dean Winters (as Trevor) and the rest of the cast. The film has fine special effects (with obvious but okay CGI), a few nice little twists, and is straight-forward with maybe too many hints given throughout. It is in the same style as the 5th film with subtle and occasional use of the Cenobites. The film also has Ashley Laurence(who starred in the first 3 films) back as Kirsty Cotton.

Thought I was watching Hellraiser Inferno againBy willowloveshorror (11 reviews) , 25 Apr 2013This film should be called Remote Seeker not Hellseeker as you will be looking for the remote to end the agony of this film. Plot is repetitious as it is similar to Hellraiser Inferno, lead a blameless life and Pinhead will leave you alone. The twist at the end is its only saving grace.
Carnival of HellraiserBy Kusanagiguy (101 reviews) from London , 28 Jul 2012The return of Kirsty to the franchise...yay
The return of poor quality sequels...boo
I looked forward to this one being a fan of the franchise thus far. My main gripe was that from the second film onward the films really lacked cohesion playing out more like supernatural tales set in a shared universe rather than direct sequels.
When I heard that Ashley Laurence was returning I got rather anxious to watch the film as it took many a year before it made it's way to the UK.
But the wait wasn't worth it. Hellseeker was another in a long line of direct to video films that was more concerned in pampering to new viewers to widen the audience profit margin. Links to the original were tenuous at best with kirsty appearing less on screen than pinhead.
the story is rather poor pretty much lifting the plot from Carnival of Souls (same twist ending also) and the film manages to tarnish the reputation of one of my favorite horror heroes by giving her a rather macabre and dark shift in personality.
If like Inferno they had used fresh characters this would have been a lot more enjoyable but for a fan of the franchise this is nothing but a disappointment.
That said this is far more competent than the films that follow
