Staff Reviews


The book that birthed the Hellraiser franchise. I will always recommend not missing this great dark read. The prose feels like poetry to me in Hellbound Heart and has always remained one of my favorite Clive Barker reads.

Description


From his Books of Blood to The Damnation Game, Weaveworld, and The Great and Secret Show, to scores of short stories, bestselling novels, and now major motion pictures, no one comes close to the vivid imagination and unique terrors provided by Clive Barker.

The Hellbound Heart is one of his best, a nerve-shattering novella about the human heart and all the great terrors and ecstasies within its endless domain. It is about greed and love, lovelessness and despair, desire and death, life and captivity, bells and blood. It is one of the most dead-frightening stories you are likely to ever read.
