Hellbound: Hellraiser II

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, policemen are inspecting the deceased Rory's house to retrieve the bloody mattress for Dr. Channard yet at the end of the first Hellraiser, the house completely collapsed.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Channard kills the original Cenobites, the collar of Pinhead's outfit undergoes visible changes. First it leaves his throat exposed but covers the rest of his neck. After Channard turns him back into a human, the collar then covers his entire neck. Finally, the collar completely disappears a second before Channard slashes Pinhead's throat.

Continuity mistake: After Julia punches her arm into Franks' body and grabs his heart out from his skinless body, in the wideshot after she has grabbed his heart out her face is clean, but in the next closeup there is suddenly lots of blood on her chin.

Continuity mistake: When Browning is cutting himself on the mattress, in one shot his right shoulder is covered in blood, but then in the next close up of him, the blood has gone. (00:29:35)

Continuity mistake: After Tiffany solves the box and it closes itself, all the doors to Hell should have closed up again too as the closing of the box means the closing of the doorways; it happened in the first Hellraiser when Frank died the first time and Pinhead closed the box so they could return to Hell.

Continuity mistake: When Frank came back in the first film, he was little more than goo on bones but when Julia comes back she is much more whole. True, she had a lot more blood to use than Frank to begin with, but it still took Frank three bodies' worth of blood to look the way she does when she comes back.

Continuity mistake: When Julia shuts Kyle into the room full of hanging bodies, she begins to kiss Kyle, then starts to suck out his blood. After she sucks all his blood out, between shots the amount and position of blood over her lips and chin, changes. (00:46:55)

Continuity mistake: When Julia emerges from the mattress and kills Browning, the mattress becomes completely saturated with blood. Then when the mover comes to take it away at the very end, there are patches where the mattress is clean. Then again, when he is pulled into it and his friend comes into the room, it is saturated again.

Continuity mistake: When Browning lies down while cutting himself, the mattress under him is dry and his blood is only smeared over his chest. Yet when the shot cuts to Channard and back, the mattress has suddenly become utterly soaked in Browning's blood. (00:30:00)

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Channard is being turned into a Cenobite, his tie disappears in some shots. (01:04:45)

Continuity mistake: When Tiffany goes back to retrieve the diamond shaped box from Julia's grasp, the position of Julia's fingers around the box change between shots, as Tiffany reaches down to grab it out of her hand.

Revealing mistake: Any time when the two girls are in hell's corridors and running around, you see these corridors as stone walls, yet whenever they back up against one of these walls, you can clearly see they are merely rubber sheeting overlayed on a framework as the rubber sheeting bends and contracts very clearly.

Channard Cenobite: And to think... I hesitated.

Trivia: If you pay attention, the Cenobite "Chatterer" first appears eyeless, then has eyes later in the film. This is because the actor underneath the makeup (Nicholas Vince) hated performing blind and requested the makeup be redesigned to give the character eyes. A scene was filmed that showed Pinhead giving Chatterer eyes as a sort-of gift, but the scene was cut, leading to the continuity error.

Question: I haven't been able to find a proper answer elsewhere, so I figured I'd give it a go here: The Arrow Video Blu-Ray version of "Hellbound: Hellraiser II" is getting a re-release in the US soon. (It's the same disc from the 2013/2014-era "Scarlet Box" Blu-Ray set.) Does anyone know if the version of the film on that particular release is the unrated cut? Amazon only says "Rated R" in the description... but at the same time, Amazon also isn't always super-reliable with its information. I'm very interested in picking up the disc since I don't own the film on Blu-Ray, but only want to buy it if it includes the proper unrated cut.

Answer: I jumped the gun and bought it, so I'll answer my own question. Yes, it does have the uncut, unrated version of the film. For some reason, the packaging says "Rated R," but it's definitely the uncut version.
