The Hellbound Heart by Clive Barker - Book Review

Banned Book Club

In this spooky halloween episode we review “The Hellbound Heart”, a 1980’s horror novella by Clive Barker. Barker is a banned author/painter/playwright, who’s been described by Stephen King as “the future of horror”. The Hellbound Heart makes it plain to see why — rendering demons, killers, and the prospect of unending torture in a terrifyingly vivid light. When Frank, a suave hedonist - opens the cursed Lemarchand configuration, he’s transported to a world where one experiences pain to a point that they can no longer differentiate it from pleasure. But after Frank manages to escape back to earth, its up to a young girl named Kirsty to confront him and the demons he’s pursued by. Join us as we explore the further regions of experience in this novella, and discuss what elevates it above typical genre horror.
