I am relishing this new Clive Barker resurgence. Adaptations of his stories have been generally appalling over the past 10 years and thats mainly because he hasn't played any hands-on role in them, but the good news is that he's back. He has been able to become creatively involved as a producer on the last few movies; Midnight Meat Train, Dread and this great little spook-fest Book Of Blood.
I have to admit that it's a slow meandering movie and not a lot happens for the first hour, but stick with it because I think that the payoff is very cool. Its basically a haunted house movie and there are plenty of creepy and eerie images along the way. Aesthetically the movie feels a lot like Hellraiser and the two movies are very similar in a lot of ways. If you love Barker then check this one out because its got his spunk dripping all over it. A Doug Bradley cameo was a nice touch too.
