Japanese poster for ‘Nightbreed’.
I love horror. I love the immediacy of it. I love the traditions, the conventions, the fundamental structure of it, which involves the eruption of the fantastic, the bizarre, the unlooked-for into workaday life. It involves the throwing over of conventional standards. I think that’s generally true: you set up a status quo then something comes over and buggers it all up, and I like that. I have a status quo and then you inject a monster, or a state of mind or an apocalypse into it. Horror is a challenge.
Clive Barker in Highgate Cemetery, London, c. 1986.
I’m a little late with this, due to my hiatus, but I came across Decker Shado’s THE SUMMER OF HELLRAISER and though it’s almost over now (he has only Revelations left, which should be an epic review!) I highly recommend checking out all of his videos, as they are awesome.
