Hellbound: Hellraiser II
Directed by Tony Randel
In the sequel to HELLRAISER, an occult-obsessed doctor calls forth the Cenobites. After the events of the first film, Kirsty is brought to a psych ward where no one believes her story. No one, of course, except Dr. Channard, who resurrects Julia so she can take him to the Cenobites. But when the gates open, Kirsty's also drawn into the labyrinthine hellscape where horrors wait around every turn. Widely regarded as the best of the sequels, HELLBOUND's visually-stunning horror-fantasy hybrid cemented horror fans' love of the series"” and the sadistic Pinhead. Contains violence and gore.

Just as good as the first, which cannot be said for the many entries that followed.
A demonological fusion of BDSM and body horror. Those kwazy Cenobites aren't for the fainthearted!
Awesome! Just as good as when I watched it as a kid in the 80s!
Of all the entries, 'Hellbound: Hellraiser II' is my favorite of the Hellraiser series. All the best aspects of ‘Hellraiser’ (the next best entry) are here in this one, but kicked up to even more sickening degrees. The Doctor especially is just such an intriguingly-vile cenobite, and being able to see the cenobitation process in what glimpses we’re given is both satisfying and abominable. Love this one.
