We discuss Clive Barker’s return to horror – his latest novel The Scarlet Gospels. The end of Pinhead! We also discuss recent news about the NEW Hellraiser movie, Judgement! NOTE – in a previous podcast Peter said that The Scarlet Gospels is the third ‘Book of the Art’. It’s not. It never has been. But Peter said it is because he’s an idiot. Sorry. And it's here in the podcast description because he forgot to say it in the actual podcast. Because he's a double idiot. Sorry.

We went to Birmingham in the middle of the UK to attend a screening of Hellraiser and Hellbound, organised by the lovely people at Back To The Theatre. Special guests there included Kenneth Cranham (Dr. Channard), Nicholas Vince (Chatterer), Simon Bamford (Butterball) and Geoff Portass (make up effects on both films). We recorded the Q&A sessions and here they are. NOTE - as it was a live recording of a staged event the sound quality does vary throughout. Sorry about that. But the chats were bloody brilliant!

The comics from 1990 continue! How does a Cenobite create puzzle guardians? Can you follow someone into Hell after they've been dragged through? Would you move into a house with a puzzle on the floor and a mysterious door to nowhere in the wall? These comics really are very good.

This podcast released on the 18th September 2012 - exactly 25 years after Hellraiser was released in the US! A little short podcast about our recent trip to the house where they filmed most of the movie. Unfortunately due to a technical problem the original discussion was lost, so Peter has a little chat with himself while going slightly mad.

We discuss two films that Clive Barker wrote before Hellraiser - Underworld (aka Transmutations) from 1985 and Rawhead Rex from 1986. It could be argued that were it not for these films he never would have directed Hellraiser himself. And you will see why. Not to give away what we (and Clive) think of the movies, all I'll say is we use the word "rubbish" quite a lot in this episode!! RAWHEAD!!!!!!!!!
