His novella Riding the Bullet (2004) became a huge hit when it was launched as the first mass market electronic book in 2000. The film version stars David Arquette, Barbara Hershey and Jonathan Jackson as the deadly stranger.

Dred (2009) Sat Feb 23 @ 22:55

The final film in the season is the premiere of Dred (2009), from Clive Barker, the man who gave us the classic Hellraiser – and now more of his short stories and novels are making it to the big screen. The film stars Twilight vampire Jackson Rathbone but Dread is not for fans of fluffy vampire romance – it is psychologically brutal and will cut close to the bone for many viewers.
