There are certain people whose names are synonymous with horror; along with Stephen King, H. P. Lovecraft, John Carpenter and George Romero invariably Clive Barker's name will be found as well. That's not at all bad company to keep. Barker, a prolific writer of horror and dark fantasy, made his directorial debut with Hellraiser and, to this day, it's still my favorite work.

When I was a kid, the poster for this movie used to terrify me. Eventually, I finally saw it, twenty years later. Even though it is considered a massive horror classic, I wasn't sure what to expect, especially since I discovered last week that Roger Ebert really hated this flick. Well, for this time, I have to say I didn't agree with good old Roger. Indeed, I thought it was pretty good and Clive B... read more

Day Seventeen // 31 Day Horror Challenge

Well 17 days in, and I still haven't found one I have enjoyed to the bone but oh well, this certainly was something good, but it was not great. What a great challenge so far aye? But anyway what the hell, at least it was better than some of the others I have watched so far, I appreciate who gave me this suggestion.

The Devil Wore Black Leather

“There are certain people whose names are synonymous with horror; along with Stephen King, H. P. Lovecraft, John Carpenter and George Romero invariably Clive Barker's name will be found as well. That's not at all bad company to keep. Barker, a prolific writer of horror and dark fantasy, made his directorial debut with Hellraiser and, to this day, it's still my favorite work.

The film was released in '87 to mixed reviews. The UK press fairly championed the film (Barker is a native son, after all) and Stephen King remarked "I have seen the future of horror and his name is Clive Barker." Lauded film critic Roger Ebert was much less enthusiastic though saying "This is a movie without wit, style or reason, and the true horror is that actors were made to portray, and technicians to rea” read more

Well, for this time, I have to say I didn't agree with good old Roger. Indeed, I thought it was pretty good and Clive Barker managed to create a really unsettling but fascinating world. Indeed, thanks to some pretty impressive special effects, those cenobites looked pretty badass and this concept of extreme pleasure and pain was really interesting, even though it didn't seem that the characters experienced much pleasure or maybe it was some kind of masochist notion, the more pain you get inflected, the more pleasu” read more

"Pinhead Angel to some. Demon to others. Ultimate horror icon to me. Seriously, Pinhead was different than all the previous horror icons who were either bumbling, mute or comical. He takes things very seriously, has a humour only he can relate to, and always gets what he wants. This very leader of hell itself is not only utterly quotable but a distinguished, if badly dehumanized, "gentleman" in a sense. He gives you both pain and pleasure but since he has a very wicked notion of pleasure, it i"

" The first movie. The one that every following movie will be compared against. What we have here is a few good scenes in a pretty boring movie. Why am I watching all these again?"

"0.1 Better Than Listal Rating Same as IMDb Rating +0.05 Different Than Average Rating Wow. Not really a scary movie, but legitimately creepy with almost no hint of humor. While the acting can be a bit stiff, I actually love the story. The writing and direction start off a little slow, but when it gets going, it really gets good. I love the special effects, makeup and character design. Combined, they really push this movie into being something better than I would expect. It may not go down as o"
