Review

Certainly a nice effort from Randal, although this movie doesn't reach the atomosphere of Barker's orginal. Randal does a good job in expanding the story, for example the of the mythology of the cenobites was interesting. The movie does bog itself down with the vast amounts gore, and the movies does weigh a bit in the middle, but the movie's effects and brillant music picks up in the last 20 minutes of the film. a very good effort for a first sequal.
