It's time. Greater delights await...
At the tail end of summer, when our minds were drifting towards October and all the thrills and chills it brings, composer Ben Lovett sent us a message: "I just got off of seven crazy months with David Bruckner making the new HELLRAISER movie. Are you in?"
Suffice to say, he didn't have to ask twice. We subsequently saw the movie and loved it. It's a beautifully macabre dive into the Hellraiser lore, staying true to Clive Barker's original novella, but widening the scope of the universe. Ben's score is genuinely one of the best scores of 2022, and we are thrilled to be releasing it in conjunction with our friends at Lakeshore Records.
Matt Ryan Tobin once again opened the box to conjure artwork that perfectly captures the film's mood. We also have small restocks on HELLRAISER 1-3, pressed on recycled eco vinyl (which means that the vinyl color is random, and not necessarily the one pictured).
They have such sights to show you. HELLRAISER (2022) is streaming on Hulu now, so head on over for your pleasure.
HELLRAISER (2022), as well as restocks of HELLRAISER, HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER 2, and HELLRAISER III: HELL ON EARTH on eco vinyl, are on sale now at MondoShop.com.
HELLRAISER (2022) - ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK 2XLP
The iconic Hell Priest returns in HELLRAISER, an all-new interpretation of Clive Barker's classic tale, directed by David Bruckner (THE NIGHT HOUSE). The film features a new cast of characters drawn into the nightmarish world of the cenobites, where pain and pleasure meet.
Riley is looking for her brother, and believes the key to his disappearance is a mysterious puzzle box. However, she cannot possibly comprehend the dark forces that the box will unleash, as well as the shocking truth behind her brother's disappearance.
Unleashing the cacophony of hell is Ben Lovett (SYNCHRONICITY, THE NIGHT HOUSE), who brings a fresh angle to the music of the franchise, while still respecting the epic neo-gothic palette of original composer Christopher Young. Lovett's score is both seductive and sickening, using the beauty of the piano and the ferocity of low-frequency electronics to paint a sordidly stunning picture of Riley's demented ordeal in the world of hell. It's also patient to a fault, content to sit back and not give you the empty pleasures of everything at once, instead carefully edging until the full power of the cenobites is ready to be released—an experience beyond limits.
