Hellbound: Hellraiser II

Correction: In the mythology that underlies the Hellraiser films, death is the fourth dimension; as a fantasy, it's allowed to make up its own rules. Anyway, time is only considered as the fourth dimension in certain situations, most notably when dealing with the non-Euclidean space-time constructs described in Einstein's relativity theories. Many multi-dimensional constructs deal instead with a theoretical fourth spatial dimension (time, obviously, would be temporal, not spatial), which would readily tie into the statement made in the film.

Corrected entry: Despite being set in Britain, the detective that visits Kirsty is from the local homicide division. UK police forces don't have homicide divisions.

Correction: Clive Barker has stated that the first film takes place in the U.S., not in Britain (the original film was slightly re-dubbed to sound more "American"), and this film takes place shortly after, in the same general location. Hence, this is not a mistake- they are not in Britain.

Correction: If this is correct, why did Larry say to Julia at the beginning "we are on your turf now"?

The films were originally meant to take place in Britain, but Clive Barker and the producers changed their minds during production and reworked the film slightly so that it would take place in the US. (For example redubbing many of the actors' lines to give them American accents.) The line about Julia being on her "home turf" is therefore now technically a mistake since it's a remnant of the original script. (They likely didn't have time to reshoot the scene to remove the line.) But regardless, Clive Barker has stated that the films as released are intended to take place in the US.

Corrected entry: The two uniformed officers are dressed like US street police and carry guns. UK police are generally unarmed.

Correction: It has been stated by Cliver Barker that the films take place in the U.S., not the UK.

Correction: At the beginning of Hellraiser Larry says to Julia that "we are on your turf" suggesting that they have moved from Brooklyn to Britain (because of Julia's accent).

Corrected entry: It was mentioned that the Dark God Leviathan suppressed the memories of the Cenobites in order for them to have no memory of their mortal lives. Pinhead did not recognize his own picture at first as well. However, after the Engineers got finished with Channard, he still remembers he is/was a doctor.

Correction: As is the case with the cenobites in Hellraiser 3, Dr. Channard hasn't had time to forget who he was like Pinhead and his fellows have.

Correction: This is an unacceptable entry, way too little information posted.

Corrected entry: In the first film, Frank had to steal himself a skin. Julia apparently regenerated a skin after killing some people because her bandages don't come off but a skin appears underneath them.

Correction: Frank didn't have time to generate skin of his own; he stole his brothers' so he could move about, if he'd had as many victims as Julia it would be likely he'd be more complete.

Corrected entry: The morning after Channard resurrects Julia, we see her standing at a mirror, and the whole of the floor beneath her is carpeted; yet when Channard walks across it, his shoes still sound as if he were stepping on hard flooring. (00:30:55)

Correction: If you look closely, you can see in several shots that the entire floor is actually laminated; the slits between boards are just very, very faint. You can see it especially when Julia has just been bandaged and she walks over to her bloody handprint. There's no carpeting but it's an easy mistake to make as the laminate is pale.

Corrected entry: When Dr. Channard is looking through the sliding panels at the really crazy patients in the padded rooms, there is a man with a tattooed head wielding a crucifix. The fact that he is in a padded room means that he is a danger to himself and would not be allowed a metal tool that he could hurt himself with. Also, the door on the inside isn't padded like the walls which it should have been.

Correction: Dr. Channard doesn't really care about his patients. He is more concerned with bringing back Julia. He probably allowed the guy to have a crucifix so that in the event that he does indeed hurt himself, Channard can feed him to Julia like he does to the bug guy later in the movie.

Any hospital with padded cells would have padded doors. I think it's just a movie mistake, Doctor Channard only just found out about Julia, so I don't think he would have had the foresight to give the man a crucifix, and his cell was covered in drawings, so he obviously had a sharp instrument (pen or pencil) prior to Channard finding out about Julia.

Channard is a sadist, he enjoys watching his patients hurt themselves and feeds their insanity.

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.

Question: When Elliot Spenser is being transformed into Pinhead, who was cutting lines into his face and head and driving nails into him?

Answer: Presumably another cenobite/cenobites. The choice not to show them makes for a better scene, as that moment is all about him, becoming the iconic Pinhead; the cenobites who made him that way are of no consequence to the story, and their own grotesque appearance would have distracted from his transformation.

Answer: All we can see (in abstract closeup) is serpent-like tendrils cutting him and driving the pins into his head. As someone else said, it's likely another cenobite, although alternately it could also be the same "contraption" that turns Channard into a cenobite late in the film, given the tendrils are similar to the ones he sprouts.
