YMMV / Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth

  • Les Yay: Joey and Terri’s interaction has some lesbian undertones. While asking around for Terri, Joey describes her as "really, really pretty", and quickly invites the confused younger girl into her home and lets her spend the night. The next morning Joey finds Terri cooking breakfast for her and wearing one of her shirts, and Terri's affection for Joey is clearly a substitute for the relationships she has had with her abusive boyfriends. Her perceived betrayal by Joey and actual betrayal by her current boyfriend is what causes her to join Pinhead's side.
  • Nightmare Retardant:
    • The Pseudo-Cenobites are more gimmicky and less frightening than the proper Cenobites seen before (sans the Channard one).
    • Pinhead's :D face. Given that one can see Joey tied up in chains and gagged behind him the uncropped shot, and he's using the horrible things he wants to do to her to taunt Captain Spencer, this one is pretty subjective and can easily be Nightmare Fuel for some.
  • The Woobie: Terri, who comes across as both cute and sad in her desperation for what essentially amounts to friendship and/or love.
