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

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 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.

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."

Aesthetix' 365 Nights of Horror: Jan/2014 (closed) (39 movies items)

"1/1 Rewatch Synopsis: An unfaithful wife encounters the zombie of her dead lover, who's being chased by demons after he escaped from their sado-masochistic Hell. I thought I'd start the New Year off with a bang and watch an old favorite of mine. Frankly, I had an ulterior motive but I'd also forgotten just how much I loved this movie. See, I noticed that Netflix has the entire Hellraiser film series on tap and since I've only seen the first three...well, it seemed like the perfect time to play"
