| Worthy sequel to the great original.
Kirsty Collins(Ashley Laurance)lies in a psychiatric hospital,haunted by the night of unspeakable horror that destroyed her life.Now,only hours later,the nightmare is beginning again.From the blood-stained matress hidden in his home,obsessive psychiatrist Dr Channard(Kenneth Cranham)raises the remains of Kirsty's murderous stepmother,Julia(Clare Higgins).Together,Channard and Julia unlock the secret of the Lament Configuration puzzle box to release the unlimited horrors and ultimate pleasures of Hell.For the second time,Kirsty must return beyond the limits to the Outer Darkness to confront the darkest desires of Hell and free her father's soul."Hellbound:Hellraiser 2" was obviously influenced by Lucio Fulci's masterpiece of gore and atmosphere "The Beyond"(1981).The film is very well-made,the acting is alright and there are some good gross-out gore effects that will certainly please every splatter freak.Absolutely recommended.Note:Death metal group from Ohio Necrophagia recorded a song called "Children of the Vortex" on their brilliant album "Holocausto de la Morte",which is loosely based on this picture.
