The film was banned in the Australian state of Queensland in 1989. In the years since, the bans has been lifted and the film has been seen on VHS, DVD and Bluray in that state. See more »
(at around 27 mins) As Kyle leafs through Dr. Channard's scrapbook, he lingers briefly on a cutting headed "Is Death the Fourth Dimension?" However, the text of the article beneath this is about a new NASA space station and is completely unrelated to the headline. See more »

It's hard to even qualify this as a slasher film seeing as how it's a lot more than just one character who does the killing. In fact, Pinhead barely directly kills anyone at all. It's more like a standard horror movie. Anyway, I was expecting to see more of Pinhead in this movie, but he may have had even less screen time than the original film. As far as slasher movies go, this wasn't bad at all. It has a bit too much exposition in the first half, but at the second half, it really does get better. We get our most creative parts here as we see Hell.
I admit to not being the biggest fan of stop motion. I just think it sticks out pretty badly. The designs were still pretty creative with this. I like how it follows up directly with the first movie. You rarely see that in films like this. I do kind of like the characters and they get some fairly good development. It's still pretty confusing and too complicated. I wouldn't recommend this to someone who wasn't a fan of horror movies, but I would to someone who is. ***
