Clive Barker referred to this as essentially "a haunted house" story. See more »
The dead have highways, running through the wasteland behind our lives, bearing an endless traffic of departed souls. They can be heard in the broken places of our world, through cracks made out of cruelty, violence, and depravity. They have sign posts, these highways, and crossroads and intersections. And it is at these intersections where the dead mingle, and sometimes spill over into our world.

Had to watch a crappy, low-quality 4:3 Region 4 DVD, can't wait for widescreen Blu-Ray. But, that's okay since it's not available in the U.S. yet, that's what we have to live with!!! I'll say this, it's no Hellraiser, but it's better than Midnight Meat Train. It looks like Clive Barker is so desperate to keep these films in production that he's not holding out for cutting-edge directors and imaginative adaptations.
The film, at parts looks like a made-for-TV film, at other times it's very cinematic. my hope is that once it's digitally mastered for wide-release the color balance and contrast will be cleaned up.
For the most part the story is strait forward, at the intersection of hell, the dead scribe their stories on a young man with ESP, the rich and demented want his skin. That's that. It's the book-end story for the collection "Books Of Blood" and as that it works, as a stand-alone it's a little thin. Still, overall I was never board and enjoyed the film. As a little, low-budget gore machine,it's a good-nights fun.
