Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Gregory Baird
Hellbound: Hellraiser II picks up after the carnage of Clive Barker's first film to find Kirsty Ashley Laurence in the hospital, encountering the expected skeptical reaction from her psychiatrist Kenneth Cranham to her tales of supernatural encounters as she plots to rescue her now-deceased father from his sufferings in hell. The Cenobites appear again, of course, and Higgins reprises her role as Kirsty's stepmother. There are also some stunning views of the netherworld opened up by the puzzle box; the dreamlike imagery is alternately gruesome and beautiful, but always compelling.

    Almost just as good as the first!

    I am a huge fan of the first Hellraiser and anything that has to do with Clive Barker, and this was surprisingly just as good as the first. Definetely the best sequel in the Hellraiser series.

    A GREAT HELLRAISER MOVIE

    For Kirsty Cotton,the nightmares never end. Still fresh in her fevered memory are her father's skinned corpse,her undead Uncle Frank,and the cenobites. But for Kirsty,the worst is yet to come as she goes to hell to save her father and escape the cenobites' wrath. Hellbound:Hellraiser II is a great movie and is even better than the first movie.This movie will scare you and make you scream. A great Hellraiser to add to your video/Dvd collection!
