The trailer for the sixth adaptation of Clive Barker’s work is online today and it looks alright. Not totally mindblowing or anything, but the Book of Blood trailer does promise to have plenty of blood, lots of words carved into bodies, and plenty of trademark Barker imagery. As far as the authors cinematic evolution is concerned, this looks like it could be among some of the better ones, though that’s not exactly a huge vote of confidence. Check it out.
Book of Blood will be released by Lionsgate Entertainment and combines two of Barker’s shorts into one narrative: The Book of Blood and Jerusalem Street: A Postscript. As our readers are of an intelligent sort, I’m sure you’ve figured out that the bulk of the story will revolve around a young man experiencing ghosts using his body as a medium to tell the stories or reveal their secrets. If you ask me, I’d prefer a postcard to a body of scars, but hey whatever.
