Ah, Hell…

Well, do you remember a few days a go when I said I was going to find out when the Hellraiser series started to suck.  Yeah, I found it.

I give you… HELLRAISER II: HELLBOUND

There’s not a lot I want to say about this stinkfest, really.  It takes place largely in Hell.  And I don’t know whose vision of Hell this is, but it’s totally unscary.  And in general, it just seems like an Escher ripoff.

And what’s with the sudden entrance of a fairy tale myth and Julia being a wicked queen?  And what’s all this business about the mute girl who does puzzles?  And what in the HELL is with the new Cenobite?

Yeah, it’s a ludicrous as it sounds.  It is seriously the most ludicrous and overdramatic thing I have ever seen.  Fuck this movie hard.

In good news, Ashley Laurence is still lovely, and Doug Bradley is still awesome as Pinhead before we get his history.  (Yeah, it’s one of those movies.)
