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.

I would venture to call this a SIGNIFICANTLY better movie than the first, for a number of reasons. I believe portions are a bit goofy, and it hasn't aged very well, but even in 2021 I was uneased and intrigued by the story.
Liked the first one, but this one wasn't as great. Had a few good scenes but ultimately it dragged on for too long in the end. Probably won't watch it again.
Great follow up.
Great squeal and I love the new take on things!! The graphics and everything is amazing as always!!
Aside from Channard's fingers, the practical effects remain outstanding. Beautiful film and score. Claire Higgens as Julia is an underrated scream queen.
