The last of Earth’s magicians are living in fear. A Cenobite Hell Priest known as Pinhead is killing them off, gorging on their knowledge to enhance his own magical powers as part of a quest to take over Hell. Meanwhile, Private Investigator Harry D’ Amour is fulfilling the final wishes of the dead, who communicate with his business associate, the blind medium Norma Paine. But while investigating one such case, Harry inadvertently opens up a portal between Hell and Earth. When Harry’s nemesis Pinhead emerges through the portal, a vicious battle ensues. After failing to enlist Harry to pen his Scaret Gospels – the epistles chronicling the Hell Priest’s grand coup – Pinhead instead captures Norma. Harry realizes he must go through Hell – literally – to save her.
