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.
Great book, it was amazing to hear Clive Barker read, it, everyone's voice read just as it was supposed to sound. Great visual experience!
The Hellbound Heart is one of the best works in Barker’s Arsenal. Barker’s performance of his work only adds to the beautiful gore found within his pages. As a fan of the film, I enjoy there being so much different from the source material. Both are allowed to live and breathe inside the same universe, while being independent enough to feel fresh with each reading, or in the case of the film, viewing, of the work. 5 stars all the way!
Clive Barker is a brilliant writer and does a great job reading his book. It is always preferable to have the authors read there own stories. If you love horror, this is a must read/listen.
highly recommend this to anybody I love Clive Barker had me hooked all the way through
Great if you like horror and need a short book for a short road trip
I loved the fact that Clive Barker himself narrated this classic storybof his. Clive's voice, suprisingly soothing and delicate can at moments become really scarry while he reads the villain's lines. He read it so well as if he were a professional actor. It was an experience really worth having.
clear and spooky. if you enjoy the horror genre you need to listen to this book.
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 read this 10 years ago but to hear the author bring things to life as he intended them created a whole new experience.

I loved it, listened in one sitting, a good companion to the book. With barkers telling you can hear drama of love and lies unfurl leaving all hope lost

I was downloading some catch up material before reading The Scarlet Gospels and picked the wrong version. It's good to have version with Clive Barker narrating but wanted the unabridged version... and now I own both :)
I hope Clive Barker gets his rights back one day and he can reboot the movie 'Hellraiser'.
The best horror story read by Clive Barker himself. It is so much better than the films. The descriptive of the Cenobites is exquisite.
But come on Clive, Cenobites don't sound like that! 😢😅❤💀 Ahh well, its good to have the great man reading to us peasants
