Hellraiser Series
Hellraiser (1987): Frank (Sean Chapman; Oliver Smith) was seeking an experience transcending pain and pleasure, and he got it in the form of a puzzle box: The Lament Configuration. He opened it and they came. Angels to some; demons to others, Pinhead (Doug Bradley) and his Cenobites took Frank to hell for an eternity of torment. Now, Frank is back, returned through accident by the blood of his brother Larry Cotton (Andrew Robinson), and he now requires more blood to fully revive his skinless body before the Cenobites find Frank and tear his soul apart.

• Written and directed by Clive Barker; Music by Christopher Young

• Cenobites: Grace Kirby, Nicholas Vince, Simon Bamford, Doug Bradley

Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988): Kirsty Cotton (Ashley Laurence) survived the horrors brought on by her Uncle Frank and stepmother, Julia (Clare Higgins) who betrayed and murdered her father Larry, and narrowly escaped the clutches of the Cenobites. Frank and Julia are in hell now, and Kirsty finds herself confined to an institution under the “care” of the psychotic Dr. Channard (Kenneth Cranham), obsessed with the Lament Configuration and finding a realm beyond limits. Channard has resurrected Julia with the blood of his victims and has used his patient Tiffany (Imogen Boorman) to open a path to the world of the Cenobites; the Labyrinth. It is now up to Kirsty to find Tiffany and save her father Larry from an eternity of torture, and close the doors of hell for good.

• Directed by Tony Randel; Story by Clive Barker; Screenplay by Peter Atkins; Music by Christopher Young

• Cenobites: Barbie Wilde, Nicholas Vince, Simon Bamford, Doug Bradley

Christopher Young
Golden Globe-nominated composer Christopher Young has scored an impressive number of features in virtually every genre, all with strikingly original music. The spine-tingling Hellraiser showcases the composer’s seminal upbringing in horror; the new-techno sound of Swordfish displays his versatility; the resonant, genuine Celtic sounds of The Shipping News display his attention to detail; the heart-pounding rhythms of Spider-Man 3 evidence his willingness to experiment. These scores are among the nearly 100 films that embody the work of this prolific composer. Young likes to say that he has two distinct sides: one side that is attracted to abstract ideas and 20th-Century music, and the other side that enjoys writing “The great American tune.” That dichotomy serves him perfectly as a film composer constantly called on to write the most dissonant music for a suspense cue one minute and collaborate with a lyricist on an R&B track (“Give Me a Reason” with Dave Hollister for In Too Deep) or a love song (“Against the Wind” with vocalist Lori Perri for Set it Off) the next. He has taught a film scoring class at USC for over 10 years, is a two-term past president of The Film Music Society, and was president of the Madrid Film Music Festival in Spain. When not working, Young spends his time delving into a rather eclectic hobby. Though he ascended from the ranks of solely scoring horror and science fiction films, his ongoing fascination with the macabre is evident in his vast collection of jack-o-lanterns, masks, and autographs of many horror film stars of the past.

Atlantic String Ensemble
The critically hailed Atlantic String Ensemble is operated by husband and wife team Ellie and Brian Bunker. Brian played for the US Army Band of Europe in Germany, and Ellie performed for many prestigious orchestras including the Mannheim Philharmonic and the Heidelberg Philharmonic. In L.A., Ellie has much experience as a session musician on various films, TV, video games, commercial songs and sound libraries at top recording studios including Warner Brothers, Sony, Universal, The Bridge, and Fox. Ellie is currently the assistant concertmaster for the Bakersfield Symphony orchestra and the associate concertmaster for the Temecula Valley Symphony; she also plays regularly in several other orchestras in the area, including the San Bernardino Symphony, Santa Monica Symphony and Dana Point Symphony. The Atlantic String Ensemble has performed a tribute to the music of Army of Darkness in addition to a previous performance of Nostalgic Nebula organizer Cody Chavez’s Hellraiser medley.

New Haunted Live Episode Details: "Haunted Live “10-5-18” – Premieres Friday, October 5 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

The Tennessee Wraith Chasers head to the Lotz House in historic Franklin, Tennessee. Johann Lotz emigrated from Germany to America in hopes of finding wealth in the land of prosperity. The master carpenter built his dream home, the Lotz House, to display his skill to prospective clients. Unfortunately, the dream soon crumbled. His twin children died after drinking from a well poisoned by Union troops. Two years later, the house was caught in the middle of the Battle of Franklin. Nearly 10,000 men died in the bloodiest five hours of the Civil War. After hiding in a neighbor’s basement, the family was forced to walk back to their battered home, stepping the whole way on the dead bodies that covered the ground. The home then became a hospital, with countless more dying inside its walls -- blood still stains the floors. Apparitions are often seen in windows, items are constantly moved around the house and the sounds of battle drums are heard at night. Is it the spirits of men who died in battle or the ghosts of a family traumatized by war?


Viewers are invited to join the action in “Haunted Live,” a live interactive paranormal investigation series featuring paranormal experts, the Tennessee Wraith Chasers, and hosted by Jamie Kaler. The team – Chris Smith, Steven “Doogie” McDougal, Scott Porter, Brannon Smith, and Mike Goncalves – relies on a unique combination of scientific method and spiritual faith to navigate investigations.
