Trivia: Industrial band Coil originally did the soundtrack for this movie, but it was turned down by the film studio. Clive Barker said: "The only group I've heard on disc whose records I've taken off because they made my bowels churn."
Trivia: Doug Bradley originally didn't want to play the iconic role of Pinhead and seriously considered instead taking a tiny bit-part as one of the furniture movers seen in one scene. This was because as it was his first film, he felt his real face should be visible on-screen. Thankfully, his director and good friend Clive Barker managed to talk him into taking on the role of Pinhead.
