* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Post-9/11, Redferne being able to get past airport security and onto a plane carrying a four-foot-long, sharp-tipped, wrought iron weather vane becomes less funny.
* IdiotPlot: If speaking God’s name backwards will unmake Creation then how would doing so be to the benefit of either Satan or the Warlock? It’s said that doing so will advance the Warlock in the eyes of his father but how if they’re both destroyed along with everything else? Maybe Heaven and Hell will be left intact but if that’s the case then why doesn’t Satan just tell his son the True Name of God instead of sending him on a wild goose chase for a book he himself wrote?
* {{Mondegreen}}: God’s name appears briefly in the Grand Grimoire so if you pause it’s blurred but you can vaguely make it out. As a lot of people have commented, it appears to be “Rodney”. So saying Rodney backwards will blow up the universe?

* CompleteMonster: The Warlock is an EvilSorcerer who serves {{Satan}}, doing whatever heinous acts are necessary to gain more power. His plan is to recreate the disassembled [[TomeOfEldritchLore Grand Grimoire]], a Satanic book which he can use to [[OmnicidalManiac undo all of Creation]] and for which the Devil will reward him with untold powers. In the 17th century he escapes from a witch hunter into the future 20th century to complete his task. After being taken care of by a friendly housekeeper upon his arrival, he chops off the man's fingers and [[TongueTrauma bites out his tongue]] to kill him. He uses an unwitting medium to channel his master and then [[EyeScream carves out her eyes]] to use as a compass. He further casts a RapidAging curse on the heroine to extend her suffering by seeing her own life go by in a matter of days, [[WouldHurtAChild skins a child]] and boils it down for the fat so he can use it in a flying spell, and threatens to [[ImperiledInPregnancy kill a priest's unborn children]] to compel him to provide the location of the last pages of the Grimoire.

* NightmareFuel: Particularly nice example of this is a scene in the third film, where [[Film/{{Hellraiser}} Ashley Laurance's]] character is in front of a mirror, and turns around... her reflection doesn't, and starts silently screaming.

* SpecialEffectFailure: While the practical effects in the second film are actually well done (the birthing scene for example), the visual effects are just horrible (the flying knife is the worst offender).
