With Craig Sheffer, David Cronenber, Charles Haid
Directed by Clive Barker

Horror writer Barker further expanded his directing repertoire after
Hellraiser with this take on his own material. This tale of a man coming to terms with his inner beast (becoming part of a monster clan living below the radar), also throws in a serial killer plotline that adds some blood to the elaborate monster make-up FX on display. Based on his book Cabal, Barker merges the haunted underworld with that of our own. Enjoyable, but ultimately leaving you expecting more. Nice to see director Cronenberg in one of his rare acting roles.
