Empire Online says, "At barely 70 minutes long, this still manages to stammer and stall between the meaningless atrocities. It's time this series met Abbott and Costello." Moria says it "does not emerge as bad as word has it; on the other hand, it is never more than a routine film." Dread Central gives it a negative review and says, "Fifteen years later this is a film remembered for being the last Hellraiser film to hit theaters and nothing else. And that’s a shame."
