Studios that expands upon the 1990 cult film of the same name. If you haven’t read it yet, we have a set of preview pages from the latest issue that hit shelves earlier this week.

“Why We Love It: Comics are full of outcast characters, but this is an outcast story, Clive Barker-style.

22 December 2014 8:01 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Alien‘s Veronica Cartwright looks back at Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh in a new behind-the-scenes clip from the upcoming Blu-ray release. We also have a look at the official trailer, along with a clip from the film that shows off the new high-definition upgrade.

“His myth has endured for generations. His legacy is eternal rage. And now he’s back… with a vengeance! A film by award-winning filmmaker Bill Condon (Gods And Monsters, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn) and based on legendary Clive Barker’s popular short story, Candyman: Farewell To The Flesh continues the tale of the phantom-like figure who wreaks a terrible fate upon those who chant his name five times while looking into a mirror… and come face to face with grisly death. Executive produced by Clive Barker (Nightbreed, Lord of Illusions), the cult horror hit Candyman: Farewell To The Flesh stars Tony Todd (Final Destination »

Bj Colangelo’s Top 15 Horror Movies of 2014

18 December 2014 7:32 AM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

We’re only half a month away from 2015, and it’s time to look back on the year, jump on our soap boxes, and crank out our “Best of the Year” lists.  2014 may have been a weak year for theatrical horror films, but the independent circuit was booming. I saw films in 2014 that have become lifetime favorites, and had some of the most fun watching films that I’ve had in a long time.  As always, this is my *~*~opinion*~* on the fifteen best horror films of 2014.

Honorable Mentions: The Purge: Anarchy, The Cemetery, Oculus, and Life After Beth.

15) Nightbreed: Director’S Cut

Admittedly, this is sort of a cheat.  If you follow me on twitter or Instagram, you’d know that thanks to my wonderful man-candy, my house is a proverbial shrine to Clive Barker’s Nightbreed.  Foreign posters, original artwork, old theatre advertisements, figurines, the film on »

Clive Barker’s ‘Lord of Illusions’ Is One of the Week’s Best New Blu-ray Releases

16 December 2014 12:00 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Welcome back to This Week In Discs! If you see something you like, click on the title to buy it from Amazon. Lord of Illusions Members of a cult rebel against their leader when he takes a young girl hostage, but thirteen years later the man they left for dead threatens to return from the underworld. Members still loyal to him begin slaughtering the innocent in preparation for his return, and a NYC detective (Scott Bakula) with a history of taking cases that lean towards the supernatural might be all that stands in the way of the murder of the world. Clive Barker‘s third and final feature as director brings together all of his trademarks — nightmarish visions, a disdain for religion, a terrible sense of fashion — and mashes them into a tale that combines noir elements with the supernatural. He delivers some wonderfully creepy and icky visuals involving the cult members and like the story it »

Preview Pages from Clive Barker’s Hellraiser: Bestiary #5 (of 6)

15 December 2014 11:48 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

It can be deadly just to cross paths with Pinhead, but to attack the notorious Cenobite and pry the pins from his flesh? Many would consider that to be suicide. But poachers have done just that in Hellraiser: Bestiary, a comic book miniseries from Boom! Studios. The fifth issue hits shelves this Wednesday and sees Pinhead gaining some assistance against his assailants, and we have a set of preview pages that tease what’s ahead.

“Over the past three years, Clive Barker has re-imagined the Hellraiser mythos as only he could, building a long-form narrative that became one of the best-received horror comics in recent memory. Now, the Master of Horror takes us into his Bestiary for an anthology series—free of continuity, but full of shocking consequences.

Step into the Bestiary for all-new tales of the LeMarchand Device and its guardians!”

Bluray Review: Lord Of Illusions

14 December 2014 2:59 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

This year has definitely been one of a hit for both Scream Factory And Clive Barker. Sf gave fans countless releases completely devoted to the genre’s fans, including the phenomenal Halloween: The Complete Collection, which brought the entire series, along with the long-wanted “Producer’s Cut” of H6 to the masses. Also a smashing success of a release, was the final releasing of Barker’s Nightbreed: The Director’S Cut, a release that fans have been waited two decades for.  Sf put out many more wonderful releases, but even just mentioning those two is reason enough to triumph the genre juggernaut of a company.

Adding another long-waited film of Clive Barker’s to the Bluray format, is Scream Factory’s excellent Director’s Cut release of his 1995 magic noir tale, Lord Of Illusions. Though the film’s supplemental features aren’t as massive as Nightbreed‘s, the release »

The Last Horror Blog: The Most Terrifying Cults in Movies

11 December 2014 9:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Welcome to The Last Horror Blog, a biweekly column on all things horror. We tend to joke a lot about cults, but when you get right down it they’re actually pretty terrifying. Brainwashings, torture, delusion, mass suicide, violent acts… all are behaviors that have been linked to various cult organizations over the years. Horror filmmakers have long understood the dark side of men like Charles Manson and Jim Jones – and have used those harrowing tales to craft their own terrifying masterpieces. One of those classics makes its debut on Blu-ray this month. Clive Barker’s 1995 film Lord of Illusions casts a deadly spell involving real magic and the cult dedicated to its brutal leader, Nix (Daniel Von Bargen). Part dark fantasy, part neo-noir, and as...

Clive Barker: Demon To Some, Angel To Others

25 November 2014 2:07 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

We’ve seen the clichés time and time again: flesh-munching zombies, deranged hitchhikers, disturbingly naive teenage babysitters, evil cliques of high school girls, whackos off dirt roads in rural America…. However, there are many movies that thrive upon original ideas and unique plots. One of the most imaginative figures in the realm of contemporary horror is Clive Barker. He has always eschewed formulas and clichés in favor of experimental (and often confusing or deceptive) visual storytelling devices and atmosphere.

Barker first formed a theater in London at age 21 to produce the plays he wrote, all of which were recognized for their horrific but fantastical elements. The profoundly unique and imaginative qualities that composed Barker's work is what led his novels to being adapted into films, which then inspired him to direct his own: enter Hellraiser (1987) . Based on his novella entitled The Hellbound Heart, the movie follows the alternate world of »

Nightbreed: The Director’s Cut | Blu-ray Review

11 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Back in 1990, just prior to its release, 20th Century Fox recut Nightbreed drastically, attempting to shift its somewhat progressive, fantastical subtext into the format of a relatively standard slasher film. Though Clive Barker managed to get the film funded in part by the cult success of his oft-misunderstood examination of aberrant sexual desire, Hellraiser, the notion of marketing a film that deliberately subverted the existing hero ethos—positing outsiders as victims rather than villains—was a little too much for a wide release with a video game tie-in. The resulting film was understandably an intriguing mess that genuinely felt unfinished or at least lacking in the usual depth of purpose associated with Barker’s work.

After some years had passed and the Internet was able to facilitate conversations that would otherwise never happen, some of the cut footage was found in rough VHS form, leading to the creation of “The Cabal Cut” of the film, »

Man o’ man, ghouls, Nightbreed has always been a bit like an all you can eat buffet, but instead of chicken wings and mac n’ cheese you get a bounty o’ beasts and craploads o’ creatures, which is good because you are not hungry, you are a monster maniac.
