Clive Barker's Book of Blood Trailer - For True Fans Only!
by Kevin Powers
November 6, 2008
The first stills we brought you for Clive Barker's upcoming Book of Blood adaptation pretty much screamed "for true horror fans only," if the title didn't already. Now we have the first trailer for the movie (thanks to Dread Central), and let me just say clearly now, this is really only for bloody-thirsty aficionados. I say that not just because the film borders on nightmare-inducing - you're pretty much guaranteed that anytime you have a crucifixion scene - but also because only a small audience will probably really enjoy it. I just hope this doesn't go the way of Barker's last effort, The Midnight Meat Train. I'm still trying to catch a screening of that since the release was so restricted. Check out the trailer if you dare!
Watch the trailer for Clive Barker's Book of Blood:
Book of Blood is directed and co-written by John Harrison, of Tales from the Darkside: The Movie and numerous TV shows previously. The screenplay was written by Harrison and first-timer Darin Silverman. The film is an adaptation of Clive Barker's short stories "On Jerusalem Street" and "The Book of Blood" as comprised within the all-encompassing six volumes of "The Books of Blood". As far as we know, Clive Barker's Book of Blood doesn't have a US release date or distributor just yet, so stay tuned!
