Pinhead wants to destroy the puzzle box so he never has to go back to hell, but first has to break free from the pillar. A club owner helps him do that, which leads to a reporter seeing a teenage boy killed by the chains, and now she obviously has to investigate. This is not a movie you can watch without watching the first 2 beforehand. You would be too confused about the chains. Too confused about Pinhead’s quest to destroy the box. There are a lot of things happening in these movies. The premise is always so cool, but it’s done in such a convoluted and boring way. Pinhead is also much scarier in the first 2 films. He and his Cenobites look like Power Rangers villains in this movie.
