Hellraiser 2 (II): Hellbound Review


Kirsty is brought to an institution after the death of her family, where the occult-obsessive head resurrects Julia and unleashes the Cenobites once again.

You don’t have to believe in Hell to enjoy this movie, but it would help. This is the nastiest, goriest, meanest entry in the "Hellraiser" series. Depravity abounds. This one was my favorite. I love seeing movies try to imagine what Hell is really like. Having a belief in the afterlife would definitely make the flick scarier. If you don’t believe in Hell at all, I can see how most of the movie would look a little silly. The Hell effects are not that great. They worked well on me though.
