The hellbound heart is a novella by England's best horror writer, Clive Barker. It is a relatively short work with a memorable plot device and antagonists that would go on to inspire an entire film franchise. Barker is, as the New York Times has noted, far more than a genre writer. This is not my favourite work of his, but word for word, you'll not find anything as powerful. The main premise of the book revolves around Frank, a Hedonist addicted to pleasures and sensations, no matter how exotic or depraved. Legal or otherwise.

This really is one of the oddest little books I have read. I picked it in ASDA for £1 and thought that it looked ideal for going on holiday as it only had 128 pages - so was an ideal size to stick in your pocket whilst waiting at the airport. This is the book that the film Hellraiser is based on, which Cliver Barker also directed. The first chapter of the book is really hard to read and I thought taht if the whole book was similarly written that I wouldn't be finishing it. This chapter is about FRank who opens a box but it is close to being Pandora's box. This chapter has a very dark and occult feel has some very disturbing characters who are ...
