An original director’s cut version of Clive Barker’s “Book of Blood” is landing on DVD shelves everywhere from Lightning Home Entertainment and Lionsgate Home Entertainment on September 22nd. The film is directed by John Harrison and stars Sophie Ward and Jonas Armstrong, and from what I’ve seen, it’s classic Barker. Check out a clip called “Highways” from the movie below.
When a paranormal expert (Ward) recruits “medium” Simon McNeal (Armstrong) to investigate a supposedly haunted house, Simon winds up as a conduit for souls on their way to the afterlife –who carve their stories on his body as a living book of blood.
Based on the short stories “The Book of Blood” and “On Jerusalem Street”, BOOK OF BLOOD is the latest on-screen adaptation of Mr. Barker’s works.
“Book of Blood” the original director’s cut lands on DVD September 22nd.
