Hellraiser: Hellseeker: Directed by Rick Bota. With Dean Winters, Ashley Laurence, Doug Bradley, Rachel Hayward. A shady businessman attempts to piece together the details of the car crash that killed his wife, rendered him an amnesiac, and left him in possession of a sinister puzzle box that summons monsters.
A movie that opens with a cute couple tickling, horsing around, then making out in their car, all while going 50 miles per hour on a split lane highway, with predictable results. This was the opening scene and it completely took me out of the film because of how absolutely stupid a premise that was, and it wasn’t until halfway through the movie that they intended the main guy to be an unreliable narrator of events that weren’t narrated or recalled, but shown as fact in the opening of the film. The rest of the movie didn’t get much better, with an absolute ton of hand wringing about where his wife is and what’s real, like if he’s real, is she really real, and if that’s really right, are any of us in hell?
Completely skippable, I think this was even released direct to VHS / DVD at the time.
