Prince of Darkness

We talk to Clive Barker as he plots devilish ways to raise new hell in gaming...

Sadomasochistic cenobites, cannibalism, hooks in flesh, skin-stealing%26hellip;%26ldquo;We%26rsquo;ve got sights to show you,%26rdquo; grinned Pinhead in seminal horror flick Hellraiser - and didn%26rsquo;t he just? However, Clive Barker himself has shown us so much more - in his books, his films, his soft toy range and in his games. Well, in Clive Barker%26rsquo;s Undying anyway - the others haven%26rsquo;t been very good. But now he%26rsquo;s back with Clive Barker%26rsquo;s Jericho, a project he%26rsquo;s steering all the way from conception - rather than being invited on-board as he was with the character and story work he performed on Undying back in 2001.

Originally from Liverpool and now a happy resident of Los Angeles, there%26rsquo;s no argument that Barker is the perennial king of horror - and the merchant of tales about a million times more disturbing than that King fella could come up with in his darkest moments. From the Books of Blood to Candyman and Nightbreed, the man%26rsquo;s a horror icon.
