About the Movie
Three detectives attempt to solve a diabolical murder that sweeps them into the depths of hell in this next addition of the classic Hellraiser series.
Good try for a follow up on the franchise..
The first 20 minutes were the best (as for gore..disturbing images..etc).. after that it kind of gets a little slow. Nothing beats the original. The new Pinhead is pretty good and does his role pretty well. Hopefully the follow up of this movie will be better..it seems to me they are on the right track.
The Best Hellraiser of the new millennium.
Hellraiser films of the new millennium definitely have turned into B-movie affairs and lets face it, the original masterpiece most likely will never be recreated, but that doesn’t mean there can’t be decent expansions and visualizations of the source material on film. Hellraiser judgment in my opinion is the best Hellraiser in over 20 years, its still a B-movie, but a well made B-movie and i hope the filmmakers of this film come back to expand on this new interpretation of Hellraiser.
Soft Reboot That is Worthy!
This new Hellraiser has been long over due. There is some great new characters including the Auditor, who quickly becomes one of the favorites of the whole franchise! Then there is of course the new Pinhead, played by a different actor. The new pinhead does an AMAZING job in my opinion! Of course he is not Doug Bradley, the original. It is always controversial to replace a long running actor, although it definitely works here! There is some other new characters that are very interesting. My only complaint with this movie is the storyline with the two detectives is a little boring, as the rest of the sequels storylines tend to be. There is also some moments that are a little too gory/cringe worthy in here that is a little bit different way from the rest of the series. Some of the scenes are just disgusting. In general this is definitely one of the best Hellraiser movies in a very long time! For me, the only good sequels have always been the first, second, and Inferno. I hated the rest. In Judgement, there is a decent story, great new characters, twists, and it also explores different concepts that haven’t been used in any of the others. I really hope they continue with this new wave of Hellraiser movies! In the end, this was a really good addition to the Hellraiser franchise and any fan of the series or horror movies should give it a watch!
