First Look: Clive Barker's Book of Blood - SendMeRSS

Clive Barker's Book of Blood

I'm warning you now - don't read ahead if you're the slightest bit squeamish. There are a few very brutal and disgusting photos that only true horror fans should be interested in seeing. I might say Clive Barker is insane, but I'd rather call him a genius. He has written some incredible horror stories and provided plenty of inspiration for many horror movies throughout history. His collection of short stories, known as the Book of Blood, is currently being adapted into a feature film. While there are numerous volumes and numerous stories contained within the Books of Blood, director John Harrison is adapting just one about a paranormal researcher and a college student.

Thanks to our friends at ShockTillYouDrop.com for getting a larger version of the teaser poster that's currently being shown to buyers at the European Film Market.

The plot is described as: Paranormal researcher Mary Florescu's investigations lead her to Simon McNeal, a college student who appears to be channelling messages from the dead. As their erotic relationship develops the line between the worlds of the living and the dead become blurred and finally collapse in a stunning and astonishing climax. And IMDb has a different take, too: A paranormal expert discovers a house that is at the intersection of so-called "highways" transporting souls in the afterlife. With both plot descriptions, it sounds like we've got a very interesting horror movie in the works.

The Books of Blood were originally published in 1984 and 1985 in six volumes. With the publication of the first volume, Barker became an overnight sensation and was hailed by Stephen King as "the future of horror". You can read more about them on Wikipedia or pick up a copy from Amazon.com.

Clive Barker's Book of Blood is being directed and co-written by John Harrison, director of TV's "Tales from the Darkside" who is making his second feature film. The film is being produced by Matador Pictures but does not yet have a distributor. Expect Book of Blood to arrive sometime in late 2008 or early 2009.

The picture where she is holding that skin is pretty horror to me. I believe I will have a nightmare tonight because of that.

The photo above gives new meaning to the term "skin flick". I'll be looking for more on this one in the future. Not much to go on as of yet...
