I couldn't make sense of anything and there was nothing good that happened. I stopped with the series after this entry.

A sick noble from the 1700's thinks he can manipulate a demon from Hell to do his every whim, but it ends badly for him. The demons continue to wreak mayhem throughout our timeline and into the future, where someone finally devises a secret plan to defeat them. This movie is drenched in blood and plays out much like an excellent episode of Tales from the Crypt. This is actually almost better than the first Hellraiser. Ignore the negative reviews here, if you go to see a movie called …
