Overview

Horror fantasist Clive Barker, director of the original Hellraiser, maintained creative control over this worthy sequel as executive producer, but was unable to occupy the director's chair due to his involvement on other projects. His creative touch is still quite evident here, as the original film's story is expanded in scope and intensity. The story picks up immediately after the events of the original, with the mentally unbalanced Kirsty Ashley Laurence confined to a mental hospital after her experiences in the hellish domain of the grotesque Cenobites, which included the gruesome death of her father. Her case attracts the attention of hospital director Dr. Channard Kenneth Cranham, whose marked interest in her story has more than a little to do with his research into the occult. The chief focus of this extracurricular activity seems centered on his impressive collection of puzzle boxes, many of which are versions of the Lament Configuration -- the device which opens the gateway to the Cenobites' dimension. To further realize his diabolical obsession, Channard conducts grisly human sacrifices to resurrect the body of Kirsty's evil stepmother, Julia Clare Higgins -- who has literally been through hell and back. He also recruits mute autistic patient Tiffany Imogen Boorman, an expert at solving puzzles, to decipher the correct version of the box. Haunted by visions of her mutilated father suffering in hell, Kirsty joins Tiffany in hopes of rescuing him from the Cenobites' dimension. Tiffany gains them access to the portal, and they make the nightmarish journey down the corridors of hell. Narrowly escaping the diabolical Pinhead Doug Bradley, they come face to face with Julia, who has already handed Dr. Channard over to the Cenobites to be transformed into a hideous new creation. First-time director Tony Randel acquits himself nicely, and seems to have a real flair for the surreal material; the script by longtime Barker collaborator Peter Atkins elaborates on elements only hinted at in its predecessor. It should follow that the slightly larger budget would allow ample room for this expansion, but the production values actually appear somewhat slimmer. What the film lacks in refined style it makes up for in utter dementia, particularly in its depiction of graphic bloodletting -- numerous scenes were trimmed or deleted altogether in order to obtain an R rating from the MPAA.

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!
