Hellbound: Hellraiser II

Director: Tony Randel
Year Released: 1988
Rating: 0.5

A crackpot neurosurgeon (Kenneth Cranham) starts making out with a skinless vixen, which leads to them killing people to regain her skin, which leads to the likes of Pinhead (Doug Bradley), Butterball (Simon Bamford) and the other "Cenobites" to show up and throw chains around - all this because people can't keep their filthy hands off a golden Rubik's Cube that makes hell literally break loose. Completely incoherent as a story (and let's not even get into the "acting"), what remains is an exercise in torture porn, as gore covers everything and a monster with penises emerging from his hands cuts people apart. The character design, again, is commendably graphic and grotesque, but I've read many of Barker's books and he's a lot more coherent on page than on the screen.
