I am admittedly a huge fan of Christopher Young’s score for Hellraiser, and thankfully fans can own a wonderful version of it when Mondo releases a 30th anniversary vinyl in late September and early October. From the press release, here are the specs for the vinyl:
Remixed & remastered from the original 2 inch analog reel to reel sessions. Overseen and approved by composer Christopher Young. All new artwork by Matt Ryan Tobin.
The soundtrack will premiere at the Prince Charles Cinema in London on September 25th for an anniversary screening, and a special screening edition *clear vinyl with black smoke and gold color) will only be available at the Prince Charles and at Beyond Fest on October 6th.
The Mondo exclsuive edition (gold and brown swirl) will be available online for $30. There is also a special box set with six 7″ singles inside a lament configuration box with liner notes from Clive Barker on sale 10/6/17 for $80.
Along with the vinyl release is a special screen print of Matt Ryan Tobin’s Hellraiser artwork, pictured above.
You can purchase tickets to the Prince Charles screening here.
To make matters even more interesting, Mondo is also announcing a special Arrow Video steelbook release of Hellraiser on Blu-Ray October 30th using the new artwork.
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.
