Hellbound: Hellraiser II

Kirstyís stepmother is in hell. Dr. Cranham fulfills her call for flesh by sacrificing one of his patients. In fact, he doctor has dedicated his life searching for the portal to hell. Now that he had met the demon, he is unwilling to step back. He supplies the victims, she steals their skin.

Kirsty has trouble getting over the traumatic events of the past. She quickly learns about Dr. Cranhamís obsession with the Lament Configuration, the infernal puzzle that seals the passageway between both worlds. He forces his patients to try and solve the enigma. Kirsty and a young patient, Tiffany, are the sole combatants that can stop this carnage





From the violence point of view, Hellbound : Hellraiser 2 has more to offer than the original. However, its pace and content isnít up to par. The plot brings the viewer from a psychiatric hospital to a possessed mattress and ends up in hell. All of this seems absolutely normal to the filmís characters which are simple humans. Conversely, we spectators are left confused about the why, where and how.

Thankfully, Hellraiser 2 is original and maybe even some excess as with all additions to this franchise. We are told a bit more about the cube, Pinhead, the cenobites and about a truly horrible hell.

The organic special effects are superb; the lasers and electricity beams, on the other hand, arenít so great. There are horrifying sequences of macabre clowns and tortured babies, in screams and images.
