Film Review: BOOK OF MONSTERS

Book of Monsters, the follow up to the vastly underrated Lovecraftian horror film The Creature Below, sees writer Paul Butler and director Stewart Sparke take another stab at small-budget, grand-theme horror. This time, however, the duo abandoned the psychological and existential dread that was the driving force of their previous work for something a bit...READ MORE...

Barkercast Presents: Coil’s Pleasure and Pain

As many “Hellraiser” fans know the experimental/post industrial band Coil was originally set to compose the score for the first film. They actually composed some interesting cues and I’ve always wanted to hear their music edited over the movie in some capacity to hear how their music would’ve driven the...READ MORE...

Tuesday Tunes: “Yet To Come”

For this Tuesday Tunes I wanted to share an inspiring song from The Last Movie Star called “Yet To Come” written and sung by the Nashville duo known as Stranger Friends (John Martin and Jamie Floyd) who provided most of the music for the film. The song plays over the final...READ MORE...

Homecoming Time: Welcoming Back Clive

As a fan of Clive Barker, I’m overjoyed to see him slowly introducing himself back into fan circles. It’s been far too long. I think this year’s “Texas Frightmare Weekend”really showed him that the fans do miss him. Not only that, but as a horror community in general, we love...READ MORE...


Tuesday Tunes: Soulfly – Dead Behind the Eyes

Welcome to Tuesday Tunes! Soulfly has a new album, Ritual with a Clive Barker and Cenobite-inspired song, called “Dead Behind the Eyes”. I like it all right, but I haven’t been following Soulfly since their second album or so, and I love Sepultura’s Chaos AD. In an article in Metal...READ MORE...

Tuesday Tunes: “Sweetest Maleficia”

Happy 31st, HELLRAISER!

Hello Friends: 31 years ago, The Prince Charles Cinema hosted a charity premiere of Clive Barker’s Hellraiser. The very next day it would hit cinemas in the UK. The US would have to wait an extra week to see the cenobites fill the screen as mysterious apparitions in an empty room with...READ MORE...
