Film: Hellraiser: Hellseeker
is the sixth Hellraiser
film, released in 2002.
After a car accident, Trevor finds out that his wife Kirsty is missing, and he is a suspect in a murder investigation. As he searches for the truth, bizarre things keep piling on him.
Hellseeker has the examples of:
- Asshole Victim: Trevor himself in the ending.
- Boom, Headshot: Kirsty's M.O. (though in a few instances, it appears to have been a Coup de Grāce).
- Face-Heel Turn: Kirsty Cotton.
- In the original script, which can be found on the Internet, Kirsty was pregnant when she opened the Lament Configuration that Trevor gave her, which makes it even more understandable that she would be willing to murder in exchange for not being taken.
- Final Girl: Subverted. Kirsty once again survives her encounter with the Cenobites, but it involved her making a deal with Pinhead to kill five people to save herself.
- Good Cop/Bad Cop: The two detectives. They're the same entity, torturing the villainous protagonist throughout, and a callback to the question of whether the Cenobites are angels or demons.
- He Who Fights Monsters: Kirsty has become much more ruthless about making deals with Cenobites.
- The Little Shop That Wasn't There Yesterday: Trevor acquires the puzzle box from a sweatshop that quickly disappears.
- Twist Ending: Kirsty's outwitted her husband and traded him to Pinhead in exchange for her own safety.
- Your Cheating Heart: Trevor has been very unfaithful to say the least. His three mistresses are the victims.
