Ten of the Most Underrated Sequels of All Time! (A list from Stacy Still)


Ten of the most underrated sequels of all time.

Hellbound: Hellraiser II

Clive Barker changed the world of Gothic horror with his freshmen feature film effort Hellraiser. Showing the dark side between pleasure, pain, and the depths of Hell itself, Barker created a cold, frightening look of evil and a very iconic boogeyman in the form of Pinhead, one of the demons that guarded the gateway to the underworld. A year later, director Tony Randel took over for Barker and brought the audience a step further, this time bringing us on the demon's own turf. Creating a terrifying labyrinth and shocking enough outlook towards the demons that actually make you feel sorry for them!  With breathtaking sets, gruesome effects, and even more interesting storyline behind the first film, Hellbound, along with Hell On Earth that came four years later are sadly so far the only sequels out of the series that I've watched. Hopefully I can tackle the entire series soon, but from what I heard the effort stopped after the third.
