Doctor Channard is sent a new patient, a girl warning of the terrible creatures that have destroyed her family, Cenobites who offer the most intense sensations of pleasure and pain. But Channard has been searching for the doorway to Hell for years, and Kirsty must follow him to save her father and witness the power struggles among the newly damned.Written by

The Chatterer's original, human form is briefly revealed in one scene to be a young boy. Apparently, it didn't prevent him from being taken by the Cenobites to be killed and tortured over and over again until becoming a Cenobite himself. See more »

The UK cinema release was identical to the U.S R-rated version which removed around 2 minutes of graphic violence including various scenes of blood spurts, more explicit footage of the creations of Pinhead and the Channard cenobite, and nearly a minute from the resurrection of Julia. The 1990 UK video version then lost a further 7 secs of BBFC cuts with edits made to shots of the bloody Julia embracing the madman on the mattress and a brief shot of a bound topless woman, though confusingly the 1999 video release was cut further with an extra minute of sound edits replacing some of the previous cuts. The full unrated version was passed uncut by the BBFC in 2004. See more »
Everyone's favorite step-mom is back--and this time she's skinless!
Even if the story's weak, bringing back the surviving (or not surviving) cast members of the original, can make a sequel better. Everyone thinks crazy old Kirsty Cotton is making up stories of demons from hell (which happened to be her attic), but we all know better, don't we? She's now in a mental institution with a girl with a penchant for solving puzzles, under the guidance of a sadistic doctor with a penchant for a skinless Julia. Part of the story is just a re-hash of the first with different characters in similar situations. This time around we go to hell and find that it's like an Escher painting with a giant "Lament" diamond spinning in the sky. Not as good as the first film, but pretty close--a bit gorier and disturbing (but after "Hellraiser", I was expecting this) The acting is similar to the first film, but the special effects are a bit more elaborate this time around as the budget was bigger due to the success of it's predecessor.
