Hellraiser Wiki

Coil were a British experimental music group formed in 1982 by founding member John Balance. During the production of the first Hellraiser film, they were asked by director Clive Barker to compose the film's score. Their music was described by Barker as "bowel churning."

The group completed nine tracks for the score, however the music was rejected by the producers, who wanted a more traditional, classical-based movie score. For that reason, composer Christopher Young was hired.

The original tracks recorded by Coil can be found on the band's compilation album Unnatural History II, released in 1995.
