If you didn’t know, I’ll tell  you now, sorry to those already know, I’m a huge Clive Barker fan. I haven’t read or seen a work of his that I haven’t enjoyed, and Book of Blood (2009) is a combination of two of his short stories, The Book of Blood (obviously) and On Jerusalem Street; both…

After seeing this movie a few times, I’m still not sure how I feel about it. I don’t hate it, but I don’t love it either. I actually don’t mind watching it, and probably will again. In the grand scheme of things, it’s a B-Movie, though I don’t know the budget and am too lazy…

We’ve simply invited you here to talk. To hear your thoughts and desires. The Auditor Beware! Minimal Spoilers! First thing I want to point out is that the only thing Clive Barker had to do with this movie was bringing the original characters to life.
