From his Books of Blood to The Damnation Game, Weaveworld, and The Great and Secret Show, to scores of short stories, bestselling novels, and now major motion pictures, no one comes close to the vivid imagination and unique terrors provided by Clive Barker.The Hellbound Heart is one of his best, a nerve-shattering novella about the human heart and all the great terrors and ecstasies within its endless domain. It is about greed and love, lovelessness and despair, desire and death, life and captivity, bells and blood. It is one of the most dead-frightening stories you are likely to ever read.

In fact, of all the book/film comparisons I've made over the years, I'd say these two are the most closely r...

3.5 Turns out the movie was really true to the original story
I'd been meaning to read this for years. I'm not a huge fan of horror, but I found the concept of the Cenobites fascinating. I'd always felt that the movie had some inconsistencies, since it claimed the cenobites offered pleasure and pain, but in the movie, all that was portrayed was pain. I was ...

He had meticulously prepared, every part of the invocation ritual observed an...
