Hellbound Hellraiser II (1988)

[Note: Producer Christopher Figg asked me back for the sequel, which had a bigger budget and was filmed at Pinewood Studios. Unfortunately, commencement of principal photography coincided with the "Black Monday" stock market crash on October 19, 1987 and, as a result, the film's budget had to be drastically reduced. Somehow everybody got the job done. This was another great experience, even though the interference from the American producers was much more noticeable this time. For one scene (which isn't in the final film) I got to be a roach wrangler for a day—not one of my favourite jobs! Still, I remember this production for being the first time I met screenwriter Peter Atkins, who went on to become one of my closest friends.

For Kirsty Cotton, the nightmares never end. She lies in a psychiatric hospital, haunted by the night of unspeakable terror that destroyed her family. Now, only hours later, the nightmare is beginning again. From the blood-stained mattress secreted in his home, obsessive psychiatrist Dr. Channard raises the remains of Kirsty's murderous stepmother, Julia. Together, Channard and Julia unlock the secret of the Lament Configuration puzzle box to release the unlimited horrors and ultimate pleasures of Hell. For the second time, Kirsty must return beyond the limits to the Outer Darkness to confront the darkest desires of Hell and free her father's soul. A soul-chilling nightmare, Clive Barker's Hellbound resurrects the darkest horrors of Hell unleashed in his award-winning horror epic Hellraiser.
