Books of Blood, inspired by the writings of Clive Barker, has finally set a premiere date for its release on Hulu. According to Entertainment Weekly, we’ll be able to see the film on October 7, 2020.

Little is being revealed about the film. The only synopsis given on IMDb reads: A journey into uncharted and forbidden territory through three tales tangled in space and time.

“Uncharted and forbidden territory” pretty much sums up everything Barker ever wrote!

What we do know is that the series is directed by Brannon Braga who is most prominently know for his work as a director on series like Cosmos and The Orville, though he did direct a couple of episodes of Salem and back in 2014, he directed Marilyn Manson’s “Cupid Carries a Gun” video.

We also know that the cast includes Britt Robertson (Tomorrowland), Anna Friel (Pushing Daisies), Rafi Gavron (Westworld), Yul Vazquez (Midnight, Texas), Saad Siddiqu (Farenheit 451), and Andy McQueen (Coroner).

Barker’s Books of Blood were published in six volumes between 1984 and 1985, and have served as inspiration for numerous films since their release including CandymanLord of IllusionsThe Midnight Meat TrainDread, and Rawhead Rex.

The stories established Barker as a force to be recognized and reckoned with in the genre. His prose was almost poetic in style and depth and captured the imaginations of his readers. A Barker tale is never just read. It is experienced, and that quality was on display fully in these collections. Hopefully, this film will pack the same punch!
