Frank Cotton's insatiable appetite for the dark pleasures of pain led him to the puzzle of Lemarchand's box, and from there, to a death only a sick-minded soul could invent. But his brother's love-crazed wife, Julia, has discovered a way to bring Frank back-though the price will be bloody and terrible . . . and there will certainly be hell to pay. This book is the basis for the blockbuster movie Hellraiser.

Saw hellraiser 1 , when it came out in theatres as a kid! First horror movie in I saw in a theatre !! Loved it !!!! Let such and impression on me. Thank you Clive Barker !!!! You're a genius indeed! Great imagination !!!!!!!!!!!!! Ps Chatterer is my favorite cenobite!!!
I am an author of dark fantasy, including my Ways of the Stygia series.
Clive Barker gives his own no-nonsense on The Hellbound Heart well. With a knowing voice he leads you to the very artifact and very same story that started it all. This is the story that spawned all of those Hellraiser movies, a darkly rewarding tale of evil and destruction.
Some my find Mr. Barker's English accent a bit distracting, but I did not. I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook.
"A must read for any horror fan"
The best horror story read by Clive Barker himself. It is so much better than the films. The descriptive of the Cenobites is exquisite.
