The infamous missing scene has finally been revealed.
Over the years this scene has become quite infamous and has had Horror fans begging to see it. Well now it’s finally available for us to see.
For those of you who don’t know about it, here’s some info:
Originally, there was going to be an extra scene during the ending when Kirsty and Tiffany are running from ‘Channard’. The scene was planned thusly:
During their escape, the duo run into a doctor and nurse. The doctor demands to know what are they doing. Kirsty backs away in horror when suddenly the doctor and nurse turn into Pinhead and the Female Cenobite before she and Tiffany continue running. The scene was set to be filmed but was ultimately dropped for two reasons. One was because the filmmakers thought that having actor Doug Bradley as a normal doctor would confuse the viewers, and another was because the special effects for the scene turned out poorly, so it was decided to discard it altogether.
However, a photographer who was on set took some photos of Pinhead and the Female Cenobite dressed as surgeons which were used for promotion of the film, and were also used on some VHS/DVD covers of the movie, confusing fans and starting rumors about an “infamous deleted surgery scene.” Some trailers do show a few shots from this unfinished scene, as well as parts of another deleted scene with Chatterer stopping the elevator with his hand and jumping at Kirsty and Tiffany.
Now before you see it I need you to lower your expectations, understandably they can be quite high after all these years but there are a few things you have to remember. This is an unfinished scene, not all the special effects have been done and was a work in progress.
So bearing all that in mind here you are, the once thought to be mythical, “Hellraiser II” surgeon scene.
