Clive Barker Films

I like some of Clive Barker's books and movies so I naturally jumped on this story: Novelist Clive Barker - in concert with toy maker Art Asylum - brought a new plush toy line to show off at this week's San Diego Comic-Con. The toys, dubbed Jump Tribe, are due to hit shelves later this year and will be packaged with original stories about the individual creatures written by Barker. While at the Con, Barker - who became an American citizen two weeks ago - shared some information about a few horror film projects he is working on.

The first - Midnight Meat Train - is being directed by Patrick Tatopoulous (Independence Day) - which is being filmed partly in New York. The film revolves around a photographer's search for a subway serial killer.

Another smaller film, called The Plague, is being filmed in Winnepeg. The film centers around a group of teens that emerge from mysterious comas and turn on their parents.

"I hate PG-13 horror movies," Barker proclaimed slamming his fist into the table. "Give me back my puking children!"

Barker also is in the process of writing a new book - "The Scarlet Gospels" - a 500-page tome about 'a man with pins in his head,' according to the author. The book is a collection of erotic text and illustrations.
