As is always the case with these documentaries, there is little for those who aren't completely new to the world and works of Clive Barker. It is a very simple and basic featurette with Clive talking about all those things he has spoken about for twenty years now (the creation of Hellraiser on very little money, the disaster of Rawhead Rex etc, the fact that he used to make plays). To illustrate this we have images taken from photo pages of the Douglas Winter biography. Nothing new here for anyone with more than a passing acquaintance with Clive's work. Disappointing. There exists out there reams of footage that the guys that made the Hamster Factor documentary for Terry Gilliam filmed around 1998. I have no doubt that if they were given the finance to put it together into a film that would be well worth waiting for, but I won't be holding my breath while I wait...
