    Released today on HULU.

    Sitting down to watch this now.
    Based on Clive Barker’s acclaimed and influential horror anthology book series, Books of Blood follows a journey into uncharted territory through three tales tangled in space and time.

    Directed by Brannon Braga.

    An enjoyable film for this time of year that you can see was originally planned to be a mini series linking the stories.

    I read a couple of these and thought they were amazing. The Midnight Meat Train wasn't that good as a full length film sadly. The Body Politic, Jacqueline Ess and In the Hills, In the Cities were crazy stories and I always thought in the right hands they would have made terrific films. Sadly Midnight Meat Train wasn't done justice.

    There was a couple of movies made based on Books of Blood, I think most were decent enough. Midnight Meat Train I thought was fairly good, Dread was another good one. I did watch Book of Blood but genuinely can't remember what I thought of it.

    Will definitely give this a look as well.

    Wasn't it Books of Blood that had the story of the guy framed for child porn? That one always stood out to me, just a horrifically engaging tale from start to finish.

    Weird coincidence I only saw a VHS rip of his first adapted work (Underworld) on Youtube the other day. Jesus it was awful.

    I can get on board with anything Barker related, book or film, even if it is beyond bonkers. Looking at you "Weaveworld".

    I think the Hellbound Heart is in development hell, excuse the pun, but hopefully we get something great from it.
