I remember the clamor when Clive Barker originally released his Books Of Blood – the originality, the gruesomeness, the overall new take on the genre. There was a rush to get your hands on a copy of the books – it literally lit the horror world up. There have of course been numerous adaptations of selected stories for the anthology novels but next month Hulu will move into new territory when it gives us a film titled Books Of Blood that will feature three tales from the acclaimed collections. We got a teaser – you know you have to have a look.
The official line from Hulu:
“Based on Clive Barker’s acclaimed and influential horror anthology BOOKS OF BLOOD, this feature takes audiences on a journey into uncharted and forbidden territory through three uncanny tales tangled in space and time.
The film stars Britt Robertson, Rafi Gavron, Anna Friel, Yul Vazquez and Freda Foh Shen.
Directed by Brannon Braga, the film is executive produced by Braga, Seth MacFarlane, Erica Huggins, Alana Kleiman, Brian Witten, Jeff Kwatinetz, Josh Barry, Clive Barker and Adam Simon. The film is co-executive produced by Mark Miller, and produced by Jason Clark and Joe Micucci. The film comes from Fox 21 and Fuzzy Door, headed by MacFarlane and Huggins.”
The film debuts on Hulu on Oct. 7th.
