HELLBOUND:Hellraiser 2

"Take your best shot, Snow White!"

The sequel to the successful and original "Hellraiser", is titled "Hellraiser II: Hellbound" and is crammed with grotesque imagery. Ashley Laurence returns as Kirsty Cotton to fight the Cenobites and her wicked stepmother Julia (Claire Higgins) once again. But this time their is a new villian, the maniacal Dr. Channard (Kenneth Cranham) of the Channard Psychiatric Institute. Kirsty is a patient in his hospital due to the previous film's unbelievable events. She befriends a young mute girl named Tiffany (Imogen Boorman) and they both spend the enitre film battling the evil. The setting of an insane asylum provides a fantastical atmosphere which is well used in many scenes involving patients and medical procedures. The unrated version is quite nasty, a veritable blood bath and continues with the erotic undertones that were so prevalent in the first "Hellraiser". Christopher Young returns as the film's composer to provide his magical score. So, if this kinda terror turns you on (as it certainly does for me), ENJOY!
