Visible crew/equipment: When Ashley is running down the corridors before escaping back into her medical room, you can see the dolly that The Engineer chasing her is being pushed on. (01:04:50)
Continuity mistake: Right at the beginning when Frank is with the dealer at a table, a green glass of tea appears/disappears randomly through shots, and they also change position, as does the cenobite box. (00:02:00)
Continuity mistake: When Kirsty accidentally opens the box while in the hospital, the face with the large diamond design on it is initially on top, then when it cuts to a close up, the box somehow flips 90 degrees so the face with the circle on it is on top.
Trivia: Pinhead is not named in this movie, and is simply credited as lead Cenobite.
Trivia: The video release of Hellraiser (1987) had one of the most unusual pieces of bonus materials that has ever been offered: A Home Shopping show where merchandise from the movie could be purchased. The show was hosted by a giddy old lady claiming to be a hardcore fan of the movie.
Trivia: The film's original title was "The Hellbound Heart," after the original novel. The studio wanted Clive Barker to change it, since they felt that title made the movie sound too much like a romance. Barker then suggested "Sadomasochists From Beyond The Grave," which was also rejected. Barker then asked crew-members for suggestions, and a 60 year-old woman who worked on the film sarcastically quipped that the film should be called "What a Woman Would Do for a Good F**k." Eventually, Barker and the studio settled on the title "Hellraiser."
Pinhead: We'll tear your soul apart!
Frank: Jesus wept.
Pinhead: No tears, please. It's a waste of good suffering.
Question: At the beginning of the film Frank was using the puzzle box, why did the cenobites arrange his face on the floor?
