Alternate Versions

The US unrated laserdisc release from Paramount is uncut and features brief extra footage of a topless girl dancing in The Boiler Room and two new scenes:
  • Immediately after Terri moves out from Joey, there is a scene inside the Boiler Room nightclub where a couple are seen buying some drugs from a drug dealer. Terri is in the Boiler Room, where she witnesses a couple in love, which makes her even more lonely. Next, she purchases some coffee, and looks up to see JP who says "Hey baby, glad you could make it." This new scene ends here; next JP is seen telling Terri to "come on in" to his room. When Elliot tells Joey about his past, they are standing around a campfire. The Nightclub Massacre sequence was trimmed for the UK Theatrical version - but was released uncut when they released it on video as the Directors Cut.
  • There is a new scene immediately before the footage from Hellbound (Elliot playing with box at start), in which Elliot is seen buying the box in an Indian bazaar.

Hellraiser III: Hell On Earth
1 December 2015 | by a_baronSee all my reviews

The third instalment of the "Hellraiser" franchise begins with a reporter the big story continues to elude until one night at the hospital she witnesses something supernatural and inexplicable. The mischievous cube has returned and is wreaking havoc. Then one of the creatures behind it offers a character named JP the chance to join up with it; at first JP is reluctant, he lures girls into his inner sanctum with flattery, and once he has had his way with his conquest of the night, gives her her marching orders. He may be a jerk of the first order, but murder for pleasure is not his style, even though the entity reminds him he murdered his own parents!

JP agrees to go along with it but the partnership doesn't last long because after he tries to feed his next conquest to it, she punches him out with a knuckle dustered fist, and takes his place. After that it all gets a bit confusing, as if it hadn't been already, but if you like gore, special effects and pyrotechnics, you should find something in the last twenty minutes or so of interest, and if you like the type of music one usually associates with films of this nature, you might like the soundtrack too, especially the title song by Motörhead.
