All of the Hellraiser movies ranked from worst to best, including the newest release, Hellraiser (2022).
Hellraiser is one of the most iconic horror franchises, and in order to celebrate the release of the newest movie, Hellraiser (2022), we have ranked all Hellraiser movies from worst to best. Here are the Hellraiser movies ranked.
Easily the worst of the Hellraiser films, Hellworld at least delivers on the gore, even if the script and story are a mess.
Again, a very straight to DVD release script. But there are some good moments. Some good BLOODY moments, we should say.
The biggest issue with Hellseeker is that it feels too all over the place. Not really sure what genre it is, it seems to mess with the Hellraiser flow fans are used to. There are few and far between good moments.
Deader starts to take itself seriously again, which is why it sits in the middle of the Hellraiser movies ranked list. It has its moments. Even if some of the script is a mess and it doesn’t fully deliver, it tries, and that is all fans were asking for at this point.
Inferno works so well because of Scott Derrickson. This was his directorial debut and he brings his creepy and intense style to Hellraiser.
Judgement is a decent addition to the Hellraiser franchise, and it tried its best to bring it back to its former glory. While it doesn’t quite achieve that, it does provide a grotesque addition to it.
Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth has some truly epic sequences – particularly the nightclub scene. Haunting and bloody, this one really shines when it comes to the practical effects and death scenes. The script really starts to deteriorate here, but there are some chilling moments that make this a great movie.
Bloodline is an underappreciated addition to the franchise. Literally taking place in space, how could you not be intrigued by this one? Horror mixed with Sci-Fi, sign us up!
A great follow up to the original, it remained a decent story, with great effects, but Hellraiser II had a bit of a messy script, complete with a few plot holes. Still, the gore alone makes it worth watching.

Jamie Clayton takes the Hell Priest, aka Pinhead, and makes this character completely her own. Even being made in 2022, they stick the practical effects and that works. The Cenobites are haunting, as is the story. It starts off slow but once it settles in, it is easily the second best of them all.
They always say nothing can beat the original, and in this case they are right. The first Hellraiser is truly terrifying. It was almost ahead of its time as it dives into the questionable morals of humanity. It is a bloody good time, and set the bar for the practical effects that continue throughout the entire franchise.
A reimagining of Clive Barker’s 1987 horror classic from director David Bruckner in which a young woman struggling with addiction comes into possession of an ancient puzzle box, unaware that its purpose is to summon the Cenobites, a group of sadistic supernatural beings from another dimension.
Hellraiser is streaming on Hulu now.
