Determined to close the gates of hell once and for all, a 22nd-century scientist, whose ancestor originally freed the demonic Pinhead centuries before, tries to reverse the Lament Configuration. Spanning several generations, this final entry in Clive Barker's horror franchise acts as both prequel and sequel to the other installments.

- This year, the past, the present and the future will all meet at the crossroads of hell.
- John Merchant: For God's sake! Pinhead: Do I look like someone who cares about what God thinks?
Pinhead: Temptation is illusion. But the time for trickery is past. In this game, we show ourselves as we really are. Angelique: And what is that? Pinhead: The beauty of suffering. Angelique: You are no different from that beast who sucks the bones you throw to it! Pinhead: [as he hooks into her flesh] And you, Princess? What are you?
Security Guard 1: Don't make us put some pain on you! Pinhead: Pain? How dare you use that word? Security Guard 2: He's got... pins in his head. Pinhead: What you think of as pain is a shadow. Pain has a face. Allow me to show it to you. Gentlemen, I... Am... Pain
[last lines] Dr. Paul Merchant: Welcome to Oblivion! Pinhead: Amen.
[Parker is surveying the scrap of the robot used to open the Lament Configuration] Parker: What the hell is this? Pinhead: The remnants of a most unsatisfying victim. Still... you're here to change all that... aren't you?
- Smithee: [Kevin Yagher] disowned the version with cuts made behind his back due to conflicting artistry ideas. Yagher's version contained much more graphic imagery, plot, and explained everything that happened in the film. The producers disagreed and demanded Pinhead should appear sooner despite every version of the script up until then having him appear around the 40-minute mark. When Yagher was unable to satisfy he disowned it and never finished filming some final scenes. Joe Chappelle was brought on to finish the film, filming new scenes from re-writes including the narrative framing device. Some scenes of the original script were thus never shot.
Guillermo del Toro declined the chance to direct this film.
Though promotional photos of Aristocratic Cenobites wearing white powdered wigs were released in various sci-fi magazines to promote this film, the Cenobites were cut from the finished film, along with Demon Clowns and an entire ballroom fancy dress party as the studio wanted to get to Pinhead's story sooner.
The last "Hellraiser" movie to get a theatrical release.
Stuart Gordon was attached at one point to direct this film, but left before filming began.
