Created by the king of horror (or the runner up… ) Clive barker during this wild youth, we’re given a brand new hero and horror icon and his fellow cenobites, there have been lots of speculations on where Clive came up with his bizarre sadistic creatures clad in leather and bloody and akin to his other 1980’s creation RawHead Rex everyone assumes it comes from the bad boy gay clubs who play on the fringes of society, but none of this has been confirmed. Encapsulating man’s need to open the pandora’s box and to discover the unknown, this film wraps up the worst case scenario and wades through flesh and hooks to detail what could happen if you dance with the devil.
