A few favorites
The Books of Blood
“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.”
The Midnight Meat Train
The movie that made me love Clive Barker. I had seen most of the Hellraisers, enjoyed a couple of them, thought Candyman was pretty good, but never really got what all the fuss was about. I was too young I guess, too immature to appreciate the subtexts. Then I saw MMT which took me on a ride that I’m still on. After that I began reading Barker’s horror stories and novels, I collected up the Hellraiser comics and I even played one of his video games. Anyway I love the movie, Vinnie Jones is actually really good in it, and it will always hold a special place in my heart. The title says it all, it’s a vicious gore soaked, gem of a film and if you haven’t seen it I urge you to do so.
