Clive Barker's Torturted Souls Being Re-vived!

Have you ever been so disturbed by a toy that it actually made you look away? That’s what Clive Barker’s Tortured Souls figurines did to me when I worked at Suncoast many moons ago. And thanks to McFarlane Toys they’re coming back to "torture" us again. At this year’s New York Comic Con artist and Spawn creator Todd McFarlane revealed that his toy company is going back to the basics by reviving not only his popular toy-line Movie Maniacs, but also Clive Barker’s classic toy series Tortured...


Paul Kane's Dark Mirages: Film & TV Vol. One

Paul Kane is one of the busiest writers that I know of. It's like the old saying goes, "If you're going to be a writer, you better do a lot of writing." And that's what Paul does. In his latest offering called Dark Mirages: Film & TV Vol. One, he's put together a collection of scripts/film & TV treatments with one of them being the unused Hellraiser V treatment by Stephen Jones and Michael Marshall Smith called HRXX End of the World. This alone makes the book worth owning. Other contributors...

Clive Barker Deals

For our fellow collectors out there, Tom Holland's Terror Time just added a large Clive Barker collection from a fan. There's a great selection of autographed movies, books, comics and more.

Happy 31st, HELLRAISER!

By Jose Leitao, Hello Friends: 31 years ago, The Prince Charles Cinema hosted a charity premiere of Clive Barker’s Hellraiser. The very next day it would hit cinemas in the UK. The US would have to wait an extra week to see the cenobites fill the screen as mysterious apparitions in an empty room with dark swinging chains from which Frank Cotton hung in pieces. The bare boards of that damp room were a stage where this great Faustian tale would see its most intense moments. Today we are...

BarkerCast Presents: Remembering Lord of Illusions

This past week Clive Barker’s final directorial effort Lord of Illusions turned twenty-three. To celebrate the occasion, I wanted to share an older interview with actor Scott Bakula that he did with the website ScreenRealm back in 2016. While most of the conversation centers around the popular show Quantum Leap, he had some very kind words to say about working with Clive and the movie itself. As many of our listeners know, he played the popular occult-detective Harry D’Amour. The one and...
