Raising Hell with Ben Lovett

The Film Scorer

On this Devil's Night, who better to raise a little hell with than my latest guest: Ben Lovett. Ben and I primarily talk about his latest score, Hellraiser, which is a reimagining/remake of Clive Barker's original novella The Hellbound Heart. As part of that discussion, we cover (among other things), Ben's utilization of Chris Young's themes for the original film, making the score something uniquely his own, and dealing with the pressure (and external criticism) that comes with working on such a big, beloved (sometimes) franchise. Hellraiser is currently streaming on Hulu, while Ben's score (and much of the rest of his music) is widely available physically and digitally, including on Ben's bandcamp. In addition, Mondo is releasing a limited edition (2,000 copies) vinyl in connection with Lakeshore Records and Death Waltz Recording.

Ben Lovett (Hellraiser)

Right on Cue

Imagine a world where pain and pleasure are one and the same, where hellish delights await those who crave the extremities of sensation. That's the philosophical underpinning behind Clive Barker's Hellraiser series, one of horror's most long-running and iconic franchises, centering around the poor unfortunate souls who come across the Lamarchand Box, a mysterious puzzle box which -- when opened -- unleashes the Cenobites, a cabal of deformed hedonists riding the razor's edge of sadomasochistic experience.   It's a series that's run across eleven films over thirty-plus years, the latest being a radical reimagining courtesy of The Night House and Relative director David Bruckner. This time, series icon Pinhead is reimagined as a "dark priest" played by Sense8's Jamie Clayton, who soon haunts a recovering addict named Riley (Odessa A'zion), who crosses paths with the Lamarchand Box after her brother goes missing. It's a film filled with grim delights and no small amount of squicky body horror, as our characters learn firsthand what happens when otherworldly forces conspire to tear your soul apart.   Just as the Cenobites explore the curious intersections between blood and beauty, so does Bruckner's regular composer, Ben Lovett, experiment with different configurations of his musical puzzle box. In addition to his distinctive use of electronic elements and discordant, warped instrumentation, he finds ways to weave in Christopher Young's classic theme from the 1991 original, tying it to Hellraisers of the past while cementing Bruckner's version as its own unique beast.   Now, Ben and I talk about his score to Hellraiser, his collaboration with David Bruckner, and much more (alongside commentary tracks from the score).   You can find Ben Lovett at his official website here.   Hellraiser is currently streaming on Hulu. You can also listen to the score on your preferred music streaming service courtesy of Lakeshore Records.

Ben Lovett Talks The Wolf of Snow Hollow

Lakeshore Records Podcast

Ben Lovett discusses scoring The Wolf of Snow Hollow. Ben Lovett is interviewed by Gene Priest, who’s guest-hosting Lakeshore Records’ On Cue With… podcast. Lovett’s discussing his awesome Hermannesque score for Thunder Road director Jim Cummings’ The Wolf of Snow Hollow — both the film and Lakeshore’s digital soundtrack album release are out now. Take a listen to this chat between Priest (Skeleton Beach) and Lovett. About The Wolf of Snow Hollow A small mountain town finds itself in a grip of terror when people discover dead bodies after each full moon. John Marshall (Jim Cummings) is a local cop who, amid sleepless nights, raising his teenage daughter (Chloe East), and caring for his ailing father, must remind himself there’s really no such thing as werewolves. Right? (One note: Robert Forster plays Sheriff Hadley in what became his last role before his death in October 2019.) Check out the soundtrack on platforms such as Spotify. The album is released by Lakeshore Records, which in addition to releasing Lovett’s and Valen’s haunting “Little Red Riding Hood” cover from Snow Hollow, has also released soundtracks to Drive, Mr. Robot, Stranger Things, The Old Guard, I Am Not Your Negro, and Halt and Catch Fire, among so many others.
