Clive Barker's Resurrection Man Being Adapted

24 September 2010 10:23 AM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

There's just Nothing like a good old fashioned Clive Barker penned tale of the macabre and terror. The author/filmmaker/artist has been terrifying his fans for decades, and through those years we've seen several film adaptations that have met with varying degrees of success. Sit back, kids! There's another one coming.

The next horror yarn being worked up to head to the big screen will be Barker's Resurrection Man. Writers John Heffernan and Jorge Saralegui are currently penning the screenplay for the film, which is being described as an action thriller. No other details were available at press time.

Saralegui is no stranger to Barker's work as he has produced a few other Barker adaptations including Dread, The Plague, Midnight Meat Train, and Book of Blood.

Look for more on Resurrection Man soon.

Clive it up: Necromentia Review

3 July 2010 6:20 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

There are easier tasks than adapting Clive Barker's writing to the big screen. Many have tried, many have failed. And even the films that turned out okay never really managed to capture his twisted visions of horror. And so it came as quite a surprise that Teo succeeded with relative easy in doing exactly that. But most peculiar of all, Clive Barker wasn't in any way involved with this project.

Only five minutes into the film my girlfriend and I were absolutely certain this was an adaptation of Barker's work. Everything here just oozes his style. From the dark netherworld, the malformed mutants and the fetish-inspired environments to the twisted interludes, this is what a Barker book feels like when reading. Imagine our surprise when it turns out this is in fact the work of Teo (who, it must be said, royally admits to the influences of Clive Barker »

3 April 2010 | | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Now in it's fourth year, Horrorfest, the annual cinematic showcase for After Dark Films, has established something of a reputation as a platform for fresh, daring filmmakers to get themselves noticed.

Titles featured in this year's Horrorfest include:

The Reeds

Starring: Anna Brewster, O-t Fagbenle, Will Mellor, Danny Caltagirone, Scarlett Johnson, Emma Catherwood, Geoff Bell

Exclusive: Jackson Rathbone Talks 'Dread' & 'The Last Airbender'

27 March 2010 12:03 PM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

In his time off from the ongoing Twilight series, Jackson Rathbone decided to dive right into a film about the nature of fear itself: Dread, based on the Book of Blood short story by horror-fantasy author Clive Barker. In the film, adapted and directed by Anthoni Diblasi, Rathbone plays Stephen, a mild-mannered film student who gets caught up in a classmate's study of fear -- a project that takes an unexpectedly dark and disturbing turn. FEARnet spoke with Rathbone by phone as he was preparing to play New Orleans with his band, 100 Monkeys, with whom he'll be touring right up to the start of his promo duties for June's The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.
