‘Books of Blood’ is back again as a film and it is out for streaming on Hulu. Originally, Books of Blood is a collection of six novels that narrate short stories. It was written by Clive Barker and was published between 1984 and 1985. And now, a debutant director Brannon Braga has tried to connect the books with his framework.
It is not new for Clive Barker that his books are turning into horror films. Earlier, his books had turned into some above-average movies like ‘Candyman’ and ‘Midnight Meat Train’ which proved career opener for Bradley Cooper. And this time again a fresher is dealing with his books so it will be interesting to see if history repeats itself or not.
The movie from Brannon Braga is styled in the old school compendium. The film revolves around three mean and gory tales.
In the first tale, a human body is badly tortured by several spirits whenever a human scrawls their names. This the only tale which relates the audience with Clive Barker’s novels. The other two tales are the output of Braga’s mind along with some pages from Jordan Peele which are stealth.
The one inspiration is of Britt Robertson who is suffering from misophonia, a condition in which one is very sensitive to sound. Even a sound produced by a drop of water or from her mother eating salad increases her rage. This makes her character interesting in the movie. Britt is playing Jenna in the film.
Here is the link of the trailer go through it once.
The writer and director of the film are Brannon Braga, besides him, writers include Adam Simon and Clive Barker as the film’s storyline has been idealized from his novel collection ‘Books of Blood’.
The movie is starring Britt Robertson, Freda Foh Shen, Nicholas Campbell, Anna Friel, Rafi Gavron, and many more.
An interesting fact is that Clive Barker is among the executive producer of the movie. Brannon Braga joins him in this. Brannon Braga is debuting with this movie and he is already performing multiple tasks together, great to see such kind of dedication he is putting in his first movie.
