Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth

Revealing mistake: When Pinhead is killing the patrons at the club and they are running away to try and escape, you can see some of them laughing instead of screaming like they should be.

Revealing mistake: After Joey runs from the club into the street and a car swerves to avoid her, it hits a lamppost which causes sparks; but look closely and you can see that the sparks appear just a split second before the car actually hits the post. The sparks were rigged and set off a second too early.

Revealing mistake: When Joey gets "cut" by the chain in the hospital in the beginning, pay attention. In the shot where she gets "cut," you can plainly see all that happens is the chains slap a little blood on her ankle without any signs of actual damage. Then, a few shots later, there's a very quick closeup of the "cut," and you can see that all they did was paint a little gooey "blood" over the top of her pantyhose, which aren't ripped through at all. (Nor is there a visible cut, either).

Revealing mistake: When Pinhead kills Sandy, his chains attack her, then they lift her up, and her stunt double is visible because her hair is much shorter and her face is completely different.

Continuity mistake: In the first hospital scene, where a kid dies by the hook-tipped chains in the operating room, there is a point where his head just explodes. Later, when Joey opens the door, for a second you can clearly see the kid's body, still with a head.

Pinhead: Unbearable, isn't it? The suffering of strangers, the agony of friends. There is a secret song at the center of the world, Joey, and its sound is like razors through flesh.
Joey: I don't believe you.
Pinhead: Oh come, you can hear its faint echo right now. I'm here to turn up the volume. To press the stinking face of humanity into the dark blood of its own secret heart.

Trivia: Peter Jackson was reportedly asked to direct, and while he entertained the notion, he ultimately turned down the opportunity as at the time he mainly worked on broad comedic horror films and felt he would not be a good fit for the material.

Chosen answer: It's a piston. 2 piston rods are jammed through his head and they move powered by something unknown. You can see the crank shaft and part of some sort of cylinder. A piston is part of an internal combustion engine. It's part of his cenobite form since he liked cars.
