The Arrow in the Head Show looks back at Hellraiser III, the series’ Big Mac


As advertised earlier this week, The arrow in the head Show – which was previously released through the JoBlo Horror Originals YouTube channel – has now migrated over to own YouTube channel. Today we have the first new episode since the big move, and in this one, hosts John “The Arrow” Fallon and Lance Vlcek are joined by Tyler Nichols to discuss the 1992 film Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth (see it HERE).

JoBlo and Arrow in the Head readers may know Tyler Nichols from the reviews he writes for the site or from the JoBlo Horror Originals videos he writes, narrates and/or produces.

This episode of The arrow in the head Show is definitely not one Hellraiser III love party. In fact, The Arrow opens the conversation by comparing the first two Hellraiser film for filet mignon and Hellraiser III for McDonald’s food. But there is at least one fan of the film in the mix…

Directed by Anthony Hickox from a screenplay by Peter Atkins (who co-wrote the story with Tony Randel), Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth has the following synopsis:

Some call him the Black Prince of Hell. Some call him the Angel of Suffering. Horror fans everywhere, he is Pinhead, the urbane, shrewd minion of evil with a bloodlust for human souls. Now Pinhead is back in the most diabolical Hellraiser of them all – Hellraiser III: Hell On Earth! TV reporter Joey Summerskill is on assignment at a local hospital when a bloodied teenage boy is rushed into the emergency room. As Joey watches, the writhing boy is literally torn apart by chains impaling his body. Fleeing the carnage, Joey follows the victim’s girlfriend to a downtown nightclub, the Boiler Room. In the apartment above the Fire Room rests the owner’s newly purchased sculpture: a pillar etched with distorted figures and faces. Among the frozen images is Pinhead. Tonight he will be released.

The film stars Terry Farrell, Paula MarshallKevin Bernhardt, Ken Carpenter, Peter Atkins, Aimée Leigh, Brent Bolthouse, Eric Wilhelm, Robert Hammond, Clayton Hill and Peter Boynton, with Doug Bradley like Pinhead.

Here is some information about The arrow in the head Show:

We’re trying something a little new here at Arrow In The Head. After many years behind the scenes, we’ve decided to take our sarcastic, boozy style into the video age with That Arrow In The Head Show! Hosted by John Fallon aka The Arrow and Lance Vlcek, we’ll dig into not only the latest horror movies to hit the big and small screens, but also delve into the good, bad and ugly of horror from the golden age of the 80s to and with understated 90s and maybe a little beyond.

Somewhat groovy and a little rough around the edges, we’re here to talk shop with a drink in hand, some foul language and a whole lot of heart.

That Hellraiser III episode of the show was edited by Lance and it was written by The Arrow and Lance.
