Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
After having her father and perverse stepmother killed by the cenobites, Kirsty Cotton is sent to a psychiatric hospital. Even after trying to convince the authorities of what really happened with her family, nobody believes in her version of the history and they decide to place her in the institute, so that she rests and relaxes a little bit. The hospital is commanded by a brilliant and strange psychiatrist, Dr. Channard, who has been looking for the key for another dimension for a long time. The only person who believes in Kirsty is a young and kind assistant of Dr. Channard, called Kyle MacRae. Following Kirsty's version of the story, Channard put his hands on the bloodstained mattress where her stepmother Julia died, Channard decides to resurrect her, killing his patients and offering them as food for Julia. She returns without skin, and she decides to help Channard to bring the forces of the evil, but the plans of the two will be disturbed by Kirsty, who wants to end at once with the cenobites, and for Kyle, who doesn't want to see Kirsty being hurt...
It will tear your soul apart... again.

Pinhead: No more deals child, it is your flesh we want to experience, not your skill at bargaining. Kirsty Cotton: No deals, just information, just information! Pinhead: Go on... but trick us again child, and your suffering will be legendary even in Hell! Pinhead: [Kirsty hands Pinhead picture of Capt. Spencer] What's this?... [looks at picture] Pinhead: Someone else you think escaped us, like Frank? Kirsty Cotton: He didn't escape, he's you! Pinhead: [pauses] Nonsense, I... Kirsty Cotton: It is you! You weren't always this way, you were human once. You were all human! Remember your fear, your confusion! Female Cenobite: Enough! Pinhead: [to Female] Wait!... I remember...
Channard Cenobite: The doctor is in. Tiffany: [speaking for the first time] Shit!
Pinhead: Ah, Kirsty. We thought we lost you. Female Cenobite: So sweet of you to come back. Pinhead: How can it send us back, child? We're already here... and so are you! [Pinhead transforms the box into the Leviathan Configuration] Kirsty Cotton: I didn't open the box! Female Cenobite: "Didn't open the box." And what was it last time, "Didn't know what the box was?" And yet, we do keep finding each other, don't we? Pinhead: Oh, Kirsty. So eager to play, so reluctant to admit it. Female Cenobite: Perhaps you're teasing us. Are you teasing us? Kirsty Cotton: I've come for my father! [the Cenobites laugh at that] Pinhead: But he is in his own Hell, child, and quite unreachable. Kirsty Cotton: I don't believe you! Pinhead: But it's true. He is in his own Hell, just as you are in yours. Kirsty Cotton: And what about you? Pinhead: We have no more surprises. Female Cenobite: We've always been here. Pinhead: But please, feel free, explore. We have eternity to know your flesh.
Pinhead: It is not hands that summon us. It is desire.
- Dr. Channard's name in the script was Dr. Malahide. "Channard" is derived from Christiaan Bernard, who performed the world's first successful heart transplant.
Andrew Robinson refused to reprise his role as Larry Cotton, forcing hasty script rewrites. This partially accounts for the muddled story structure of the final film.
Because of an neck accident, Kenneth Cranham only wore the Channard Cenobite makeup for one day. Stuntman Bronco McLoughlin played the Channard Cenobite for the rest of the shoot.
The horn sound that is continually made by Leviathan is Morse code for "God".
