Daniel Licht Has Passed Away

Spread the love

Some sad news to report today as we’ve learned that composer Daniel Licht has passed away from cancer. He was 60 years old.

Hellraiser fans will remember him as the composer for Hellraiser: Bloodline. His score was one of the best things about that troubled production. His opening theme brought back memories of Christopher Young’s (a close friend of Daniel’s) epic score from Hellbound. He would go on to score other such films and TV shows as Stephen King’s Thinner, Bad Moon, and the popular Showtime drama Dexter.

Dexter Executive Producer David Phillips had this to say:

“Dan was an incredibly talented musician and composer, but most of all, he was a dear friend. His passing leaves all of us a bit quieter, a bit sadder, and without the gift of his music and his love.”

Here’s a link to his official Youtube channel so all of you can experience his work:
