Added DiffLines:

* SeamlessScenery: When Watkins reads the letter from the Stygian Inquisition; he puts it down... revealing the address the letter gives him, and then he walks into frame from a completely different direction.

Added DiffLines:

* MythologyGag: Like in ''[[Film/HellraiserInferno Inferno]]'', the serial killer at the center of the plot turns out to be [[spoiler:the cop assigned to the case.]]


* TooSpicyForYogSothoth: The Assessor is a demon resembling a disgusting obese man with JabbaTableManners responsible for digesting the sins of those to be judged after the Auditor has put them down to paper. When he eats Sean's file, his sins are so hideous that the Assessor chokes on them before he can even finish.

* DealWithTheDevil: The Preceptor tries to bargain for his soul with Pinhead by offering the lives of two other sinners guilty of adultery after forcing them at gunpoint to use the Lament Configuration. However, this is [[DefiedTrope defied]] since Pinhead can't accept the offer, given that a different faction in Hell wants to recollect him.

Added DiffLines:

* EasyRoadToHell: While the demons explicitly go after sinful people in general, their quarry ranges from serial killers and pedophiles to mere adulterers. As far as Pinhead is concerned, they are all deserving of eternal damnation.

Added DiffLines:

* VoiceOfTheLegion: The angel Jophiel talks in an echoing voice to enhance her eerie, otherworldly nature.

Added DiffLines:

* ModernizedGod: There's a frank discussion amongst the leaders of Hell how they are supposed to adapt to the shifting technological environment of mankind. While it breeds more sin than ever before, Pinhead concludes that the puzzle boxes are now outdated and once again they must actively go out in search of fresh blood.

Added DiffLines:

* GoodNeedsEvil: The angel Jophiel uses the argument that good cannot exist without evil to [[spoiler:let a serial killer roam free]]. Pinhead sees right through it, pointing out that what really concerns Heaven is continued devotion.


* CelestialBureaucracy: Hell, or rather the Stygian Inquisition within it, is portrayed as very bureaucratic. New arrivals are interviewed by The Auditor, who puts their sins to paper, which are then eaten by another demon (The Assessor), and finally judged by the Jury. If found guilty, the Surgeon finishes the sinner off. Pinhead and his Cenobites are part of a different faction of demons (The Order of the Gash) dedicated to pleasure and pain as an end in itself, and only rarely get involved with other matters.
