Review: Tonight, Again (For Adult Readers Only)

As many of you know Clive Barker’s work has always contained a high level of eroticism, and his most recent book Tonight Again: Tales of Love, Lust, and Everything in Between is his most sexually frank novel to date. This is a different side of Clive’s writing that I’ve never...READ MORE...

Review: Nightbreed: The Director’s Cut

This review for The Nightbreed Director’s Cut is going to be a very personal one for me. My feelings on the situation go beyond the movie itself. Honestly, I never thought I’d live to see Clive Barker’s true version of the film. My heart told me it wouldn’t happen, and...READ MORE...

Retro Review: Hellraiser: Bloodline Workprint Review

“Welcome to oblivion.” – Paul Merchant For this Retro Review I’ll be talking about the leaked workprint of Hellraiser: Bloodline, which in many ways is much better than the released version, but is still miles away from what filmmakers originally had in mind.
