The record itself is 140g Multi-Colored Translucent Red with Black Smoke Vinyl.

Side A: 24 minutes

  1. Hellraiser
  2. Resurrection
  3. Hellbound Heart
  4. The Lament Configuration

    Yup. I’m gonna get this for sure.

  • Necro

    Cool! I’m not really a vinyl guy, but this is very neat, not to mention a nice collector piece.
    On a bit of a separate topic, is there any new news on the new film?

  • Cheshire TrollCat

    Ok, just got done reading the Scarlett Gospels and Books of Blood 1-3. Why the fuck aren’t they movies? Besides Meat train, book of blood and dread (rawhead rex doesn’t count) there are painfully few movies based off the book. These are some of the most creative, sexual, and violent stories I’ve read. In The hills, Cities; Pig Blood Blues, The Yattering and Jack, Son of Celluloid, Confessions of a porgraphers shroud, Skins of the father’s ect. These are fucking awesome stories that need to be made into films. Don’t even get me started on the Scarlett Gospels. All these shitty horror movies when these stories exist is so frustrating. Sorry for the vent.

    • Darkknight2149

      To be fair, Scarlet Gospels was a little divisive (mainly because of the sky-high expectations). Although I enjoyed it, I would rather see an original Hellraiser v. Harry D’Amour movie with a similar premise than a page-for-page adaptation of the novel, but that’s just me.

      Books of Blood would also probably be great on television. Though, several of the stories from that collection already are movies.

      • Tetra-Gramaton-Cleric

        I’d really love to read the original manuscript of Scarlet Gospels, which was massive and apparently went into much more detail about Pinhead.

        • Darkknight2149

          Same. I think the final book was compromised for commercial release. I hope they eventually release a Director’s Cut of the novel. If Stephen King’s It can go on for an obscene 1153 pages, I don’t see any reason an epic like The Scarlet Gospels can’t be told in its entirety.

    • Dan Warren (Forgottenretroworl

      The Yattering and Jack was adapted for TV though it was forgettable. I have the full set of Books and found them wildly imaginative and original. Raw, daring stuff. They would make brilliant movies in the right hands. A French director, perhaps. No problem with censorship nowadays so that’s a bonus.

  • Darkknight2149

    I kind of wish they hadn’t stopped using Christopher Young’s main Hellraiser theme after Hellraiser V: Inferno. Then again, all of the films after that aren’t really Hellraiser films… Except for Revelations, which we do not speak of.

    • Judas Cradle

      After HELLBOUND, that was it.

      • Hero

        The Christopher Young score was still used sparingly in III and IV, but mixed in with new tracks. Inferno didn’t feature his work at all.

        • Darkknight2149

          I beg to differ.

      • Darkknight2149

        They re-used his main theme in the films up until Inferno, even if he didn’t score those films.

  • Garbageface

    Isn’t Death Waltz also putting this out soon? Huh. I wonder what the differences will be
