As fans of the movie know, originally there was going to be an extra scene during the ending when Kirsty and Tiffany are running from Channard. Scene was planned to go like this; During their escape they ran into doctor and nurse. Doctor demands to know what are they doing. Kirsty backs away in horror when suddenly doctor and nurse turn into Pinhead and Female Cenobite and then her and Tiffany continue running. Scene was set to be filmed but it was ultimately dropped for two reasons. One was because filmmakers thought that having actor Doug Bradley as normal doctor would confuse the viewers, and second one was because effects were very bad so it was decided to stop filming the scene. However, still photographer who was on set took some photos of Pinhead and Female Cenobite dressed as surgeons which were used for promotion of the film and were also used on some VHS/DVD covers of the movie, confusing the fans and starting a rumor about "infamous deleted surgery scene". Some trailers do show few shots from this unfinished scene and couple shots of another deleted scene with Chatterer stopping the elevator with his hand and jumping at Kirsty and Tiffany. See more »

Kirsty Collins(Ashley Laurance)lies in a psychiatric hospital,haunted by the night of unspeakable horror that destroyed her life.Now,only hours later,the nightmare is beginning again.From the blood-stained matress hidden in his home,obsessive psychiatrist Dr Channard(Kenneth Cranham)raises the remains of Kirsty's murderous stepmother,Julia(Clare Higgins).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."Hellbound:Hellraiser 2" was obviously influenced by Lucio Fulci's masterpiece of gore and atmosphere "The Beyond"(1981).The film is very well-made,the acting is alright and there are some good gross-out gore effects that will certainly please every splatter freak.Absolutely recommended.Note:Death metal group from Ohio Necrophagia recorded a song called "Children of the Vortex" on their brilliant album "Holocausto de la Morte",which is loosely based on this picture.
