Clive Barker - Hellraiser Lakeshore Vinyl

Spencer Hickman (Mondo Record Label Manager) "Even though the film was a low budget horror with a first-time director, Hellraiser towers over just about every other horror score recorded in the '80s. Composer Christopher Young decided that instead of providing a typical '80s synth score, he would use a full orchestra to create a symphonic score that was epic is scope. It's a phenomenal piece of work; huge strings, waltz-like time signatures, and suites that run from the ethereal to downright scary in a matter of moments. We are thrilled to be releasing Hellraiser in [conjunction] with Lakeshore Records for its 30th anniversary. This fully remastered sonic assault will tear your ears apart,"

Prince Charles Cinema "Hellraiser had its first ever public screening here at The Prince Charles Cinema way back in September 1987; the owner of the cinema still talks about the packed, raucous, late-night screening that blew the roof off the place. When Mondo reached out to us about launching the soundtrack re-release in celebration of the film's 30th anniversary, we jumped at the chance to take part. And just when we thought the evening couldn't get any better, Arrow Films came in with a 35mm print of the film in hand to make this a perfect night at the movies!"

Arrow Video "With the anniversary of Hellraiser just around the corner we're all giddy with excitement here at Arrow, so when Mondo and the Prince Charles spoke to us about being involved in this event, there was only one answer, a big fat YES! The event at Prince Charles will be one of a kind and the perfect launch for Mondo's soundtrack release. If all of that wasn't enough to get fans salivating, we're excited to be announcing another special Hellraiser goody on the way from us... In conjunction with Mondo artist Matt Ryan Tobin we have created a new special anniversary edition Blu-ray SteelBook which perfectly complements the vinyl re-issue, so now for the first time ever you'll be able to see the film in the cinema from an original 35mm release print, hear the soundtrack on a newly remastered vinyl, and take the film home to enjoy again and again."

Matt Ryan Tobin "We've seen a lot of interpretations of Pinhead in art looking malicious and evil. I wanted to focus on the cold and sombre aspect of Pinhead; emotionless and almost sad. As much as he is a delegate for the Cenobites, he's also very much a prisoner; chained down by the very chains he uses to collect and destroy souls. I really wanted the artwork to reflect this.""
