Plot: Beginning just hours after the original HELLRAISER ended, HELLBOUND finds young Kristy (Laurence) waking up in a mental institution because she insisted on describing her parents murderers as pain loving demons from hell to the authorities. Unfortunately, she has been placed in the car of Dr. Channard, who has devoted his life to solving the Lament Configuration, the key to the doorway of hell, and now, with Kristy, he believes he has found another key. Resuscitating the skinless corpse of her stepmother, Julia, Dr. Channard succeeds in opening a doorway to hell, one that Julia, Channard, Kristy, and her mute friend Tiffany all travel through.

external linkThis first of two many sequels gets points for trying to keep the story going from the original and for having some good ideas but taking the story into the labyrinths with minimal explanation for it just doesn't work and it all ends-up becoming muddled,a bit slower than the original and just not that watchable. This is just a sloppy and, I suspect, quickly thrown together sequel that disappoints more than anything. 1.5/4

external link...the film flows smoothly and presents lots of gut-wrentching moments. This film is really hard to review--it really has to be experienced. 3.5/5

external linkOne thing this film does have over the first is its sense of humor and a bigger budget. ... Part 2 is not a classic, but a damn fine film, this is must-viewing, particularly after catching viewing Part 1.
