Dimension Home Video has released the cover art for it's upcoming film Hellraiser: Hellworld. This time around Pinhead is drawn to a couple internet hackers who have opened a virtual Lament Configuration Website. Not much of the web surfer, Pinhead is quick to put an end to the cybering. As for the cover art, looks to me as if Pinhead is trapped in the Matrix instead of a puzzle box. I mean, could it look any more similar to the Matrix covers? Anyway, here's the list of features coming with the DVD on September 6th...
- 1.85:1 Anamorphic widescreen presentation
- English Dolby Digital 5.1 track
- Filmmaker Commentary
- Behind the Scenes entitled "Ticket to Hellworld"
Log on to Hellworld and pre-order the movie!
