CD Man was a DJ. It wouldn't have been as cool if he was Record Man, especially since records break easier. Nothing about the Cenobites makes any sense in that one.
Wow - I will never get used how fast people respond to these comments... I edited mine, because I really tend to like #3-5 in a series more than #1. Know that is atypical of a lot of people... On the whole, I think Barker created an incredible mythology that was just never realized - imho- in any of the films. Maybe that is why I like #4 so much.. Even in its cut state, it seemed to me to really embrace a mythology....not totally successful, mind you, but I really liked Angelique and the origin story..
That being said, I do find it strange that #3 is not given the same DVD/BD treatment as the others... the only ones I have seen are full screen versions.. That is nuts, imho, in this day and age....
