J.P. Monroe: “Jesus Christ!”
Pinhead: “Not quite.”
Man, Pinhead has got quips; who would have thought the hell priest looked on the funny side? He is not too far from Freddy Krueger's territory of dark wit. I was shocked by how much I enjoyed this one, which I did not expect. I’m guessing this is where the franchise gets silly, right? I mean, this is a guilty pleasure.
Some of the acting is dire, and the movie goes a bit overboard with the campiness, especially with one of the Cenobites whose only lines are puns. Is it just me, or do Pinhead and his gang get deferred very quickly in these movies?
However, I can’t help but laugh at the scene where Pinhead resurrects several of his victims as demonic Cenobites, with one being a DJ, whose design has CD’S planted around his head, and whenever he kills someone, he takes one of the CD out and throws it at someone, killing them instantly.
