CLIVE BARKER Talks Violence in HELLRAISER Interview [Video]

Horror fans will love this vintage interview featuring Clive Barker discussing his Hellraiser (1987) film and the violence that the movie portrays.

Warner Bros. / Stephen King's IT Release Date Announced!

Director Andres Muschietti (Mama (2013)) is bringing Stephen King’s It (2017) back, and Warner Bros. has announced the release date is September 8, 2017.
