Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988)

Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988, GBR) C-99m. ** D: Tony Randel. Starring Clare Higgins, Ashley Laurence, Kenneth Cranham, Imogen Boorman, Sean Chapman, William Hope, Doug Bradley. Sequel to Clive Barker's horror hit HELLRAISER (1987) continues story of Laurence, whose stepmother manages to get herself resurrected by a maniacal doctor, with the cenobite horde in tow. Some time later, the movie takes us right into hell. Even more unpleasant than its predecessor, with an uneven plot, but convincing make-up effects will titillate the dedicated. Pretty much the epitome of splatter punk, set to a booming Christopher Young soundtrack. Barker executive produced. R-rated version runs 97m.
