"Young American composer Christopher Young was a logical choice to write the
music for horror novelist Clive Barker's directorial debut, Hellraiser, based on
Young's work on Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge. And he proved
he hadn't used up all of his ideas for the horror genre on that effort, matching
Barker's stylish look with a gothic score that mixed in exciting synthesizer
effects. Within the inevitable requirements of supporting tension and grotesque
violence on the screen, he managed interesting variations. The first and most
obvious was 'Resurrection,' a creepy but attractive waltz. 'Seduction and
Pursuit,' which began with a toy piano-like keyboard part, built up with
inventive percussion and horn-like effects. And 'Re-Resurrection' was a
satisfying climax. Young seemed to conceive his score as a whole, rather than as
a series of cues to accompany scenes, and it worked that way, having a
cumulative effect." - William Ruhlmann, allmusic.com
