A step down from the original, but still worthwhile.

Mere hours after the events in the original, adorable Kirsty ( Ashley Laurence ) quite literally goes to Hell, attempting to bring her father back, with an puzzle solver in tow, who might know how to close the Lament Configuration once and for all.

It is most unfortunate, however, the young puzzle solver ( Imogene Boorman ) is so awful in her role that it becomes distracting, not to mention that I spent most of her scenes wondering if the role was being played by a real girl, or an androgynous guy?

Pinhead and his Cenobites are still gruesome and ghoulish, simultaneously frightening, and also what keeps most watching, but the depiction of Hell is only a mixed bag. Hell is shown here as a labyrinthine series of concrete hallways, dusty, seemingly endless, like we're just wandering through a castle. Some shots of it are convincing, and look good, while in other scenes, it's clearly just painted backdrops.

Claire Higgins, as Julia, is an evil creature, cold and ruthless. It's interesting to wonder how the series would have progressed if she had agreed to return for more sequels.

Evergreen classic of horror genre

Nightmare of the king of horror continues. Hellbound is direct sequel to Hellraiser and, in my opinion, it's a bit better than the original. Opinions are divided about which one is better, but it is certain that the sequel is more complex, bloodier and, thanks to the success of the original, it had a much bigger budget. While in the first movie Cenobites introduced a hint of horror to our world, this time we join them on their field. Morbidly imaginative display of Hell that will forever be carved into your memory. One of the best horrors of all time, which, in my opinion, belongs to the domain of general culture.

8/10

Overblown sequel too reliant on gorey set pieces

The saying "less is more" couldn't be more fittingly applied than to this sequel. Whereas the first movie was a simpler told story, though still with it's problems, this one is an all out gorefest, full of badly connected scenes with no coherency of plot. As mentioned in the title, it's an overblown incoherent mess that throws everything it can at you and in turn negates any effect or atmosphere it could have created. It's amazing how many people will rate things a 10 out of 10. I know we all have different tastes, but it seems that logic, clear plot and characters takes a back seat to other lesser things which though not unimportant, are the added extras which should be the finishing touches to the film. There are many film makers out there, but very few skilled storytellers.
