Synopsis: In the final days of World War II, the Nazis attempt to use black magic to aid their dying cause. The Allies raid the camp where the ceremony is taking place, but not before a demon - Hellboy - has already been conjured. Joining the Allied forces, Hellboy eventually grows to adulthood, serving the cause of good rather than evil.

A NOTE FROM THE COMPOSER

Some comic book movies turn into films that are very serious all the way through. This film had a lot of different elements in it and allowed me a lot of musical flexibility. I had seven themes for all different characters and they were always intertwining. From that standpoint alone Hellboy was different. In Blade 2 I had maybe only two or three themes, while here I had material for Hellboy, Hellboy and Liz's Love Theme, Abe's Theme, Kroenen's Theme, Rasputin's Theme, Rasputin and Ilsa's Love Theme and Professor Broom's Theme, that's seven themes right there. One of the challenges was to make this work as a whole.
