It's Clive Barker, so it must be worth watching
4 October 2017 | by Bored_DragonSee all my reviews

Clive Barker is multi-talented horror artist. Mainly writer, but also screen writer, director, producer, actor, painter, illustrator... Although most of you know him as author of Hellraiser movies, for me his life achievement will always be a collection of short stories Book of Blood and video game Undying. Salome from 1973. is first cinematography attempt of then 20 years old future king of horror. This is short 18 minutes black and white silent film. Maybe more of visual performance than real movie. This low- budget, or more accurately no-budget film is made in some basement with just a few friends. Using just one light source in complete darkness Barker concentrates more on building an atmosphere than telling a story. Considering when it is done, his age and budget and fact that this is his first amateur attempt of film making, it is very ungrateful to try to rate it objectively. For true Barker fans and film students this is must watch film, that will almost surely leave positive impression. For the majority of the rest this will probably be unwatchable crap. To me, this is

<3 Barker <3 /10
