Unlike other 80s horror films at the time which were largely soundtracked by synths, composer Christopher Young used a full orchestra to create Hellraiser’s symphonic score. Its 30th anniversary release has been remixed and remastered from the original 2-inch analogue reel-to-reel sessions.

Hellraiser 30th anniversary box set ($80), limited to 1000 worldwide, features 6×7” singles housed inside a 8”x8” wooden box. The LP is also available in a screening edition on “clear vinyl with black smoke and gold colour in colour effect” and “lament configuration vinyl with gold and brown swirl” ($30).
