A moving man who had been hired to help move furniture into the Cotton house returns to help empty the Channard Institute.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Early in the film Kirsty sees messages from his father Larry calling out to her, trapped in "Hell" after being killed in the previous movie. This forms at least part of her reason for entering and exploring the Cenobites' dimension. Along the way, this plot thread is just quietly dropped. The reason is that the script for the sequel was already being written when the first film was still in production, and Andrew Robinson, who played Larry, ultimately did not sign on for the sequel.

In-character, the message is revealed to be Frank's doing, impersonating his brother yet again to get to Kristy.

* MouthStitchedShut: Surprisingly ''not'' done with a Cenobite, but with [[spoiler: one of the disturbing adornments on the torture-pylon that arises at the film's end. Just before the "What's your pleasure?" CallBack, the spinning display shows a baby with its lips sewn together and the needle that did it clutched in one hand.]]

* UngratefulBastard: Dr. Channard brings Julia back from Hell, and restores her skin by bringing her numerous victims to feed off of. How does she repay him? [[spoiler:By offering him to Leviathan and having him transformed into a Cenobite.]]
* VillainOpeningScene: In a way - it begins with the StartOfDarkness for Pinhead, as Major Elliot Spencer is ensnared by Cenobite chains.

* AnArmAndALeg: [[spoiler:The Channard Cenobite]] slices off an unfortunate patient's arm with his [[CombatTentacles bladed tentacles]].



* EvilIsNotAToy: Probably even more true for this film, where [[spoiler:Dr. Channard's obsession with the Lament Configuration ultimately leads to him becoming horrifically tortured and turned into a Cenobite himself.]] He's horrified at first, but in the end...''And to think, I hesitated.''

* GroinAttack: The patient who slices himself up with a straight razor drags the blade across his ''crotch'' at one point.



* ImmediateSequel: This film starts several hours after the ending of the first.



** When Frank accidentally stabs Julia in the first film, he states that it's "nothing personal, baby". In the second film, Julia throws that line back at Frank when she quite intentionally (and quite literally) rips his heart out.

* LargeHam: The Channard Cenobite. All his lines were doctor-related and he had a rather strange evil laugh.

* RedemptionDemotion: The movie presents an extremely glaring example. Near the climax, the heroine talks the four main Cenobites of the previous film -- including Pinhead, the series' most popular villain -- into a HeelFaceTurn by reminding them they were once human. Minutes later, they are unceremoniously {{Curb Stomp|Battle}}ed by a newly-converted and thoroughly evil Cenobite. The screenwriter received so much hate mail over this, he wound up invoking WorfHadTheFlu.

* WomanInWhite: A surreal, gruesome example occurs when skinless Julia wears a white suit that Channard lends her. Unsurprisingly, it gets covered in blood.
