How fucking frightening would it be if you could die in your dreams? Sleep is the single greatest thing on the planet and this fucking ugly ass pedophile burn victim takes the only joy in your miserable life away from you. What a cunt. Everything about Freddy Krueger is unique. His glove, his skin, a fucking Christmas sweater and a fedora. Who the fuck designed this? Top that off with an excellent performance by the great Robert Englund and you have the most evil, sadistic and often hilarious horror icon. ~John Moser

Once you get past the mutilated and terrifying appearance of Pinhead, you will find a level of sophistication and intelligence that is unusual for horror villain.  He almost feels like a cross between Freddy Krueger and Hannibal Lecter, which is definitely good company to have.  While the first two films show a subdued and restrained character, Hellraiser 3 helps to show just how evil Pinhead can be as he terrorizes Earth.
