We discuss the movie Event Horizon, which has some Hellraiser based ideas and themes. What is the Event Horizon? Where has it been? Can this film fit into the Hellraiser world and mythology? Why the Hell didn't Bloodline look like this?!?

We discuss the movie Candyman from 1992, based on Clive Barker's short story The Forbidden from The Books of Blood. Who is this mysterious man with a hook for a hand? Why is he full of bees?
