December 23, 1988
After the events of Hellraiser, Kirsty is placed in a psychiatric facility, the Channard Institute, while police investigate her father and stepmother's disappearance and the destruction of their home. At the institute, she tries to warn Dr. Phillip Channard about the Cenobites, but the information isn't news to Channard. He has been searching for a way into their realm for a long time. He even owns a hellish collection of items from their kill sites. When Channard finally opens the doorway, Kirsty must fight old enemies and new to save herself and another girl, Tiffany, who lives at the Institute. Pinhead and the Cenobites haven't forgotten about Kirsty though and are most eager to share with her their “gift” of pleasure and pain.
