Hellbound : Hellraiser 2 (1988)
The rest of the Hellraiser movies are not even worthy of a watch so I suppose that says something about this one. Still I recommend sticking with the first film unless if you can substitute substance for blood. In that case Hellbound comes complete with a recap of all the gory moments from Hellraiser including the "Jesus wept" exploding daddy scene. We are also treated to more skinless mayhem, a man who juggles his own eyeballs, lots of maggots, a heart is ripped from a mans chest, faces are diced up, open brain surgery which reminds me of Happy Birthday To Me and we get a very strange vision of what hell might look like. This is all done with cheesy 80's special effects.
Not a very good movie but the beginning is a lot of fun.
