The Hellbound Heart by Clive Barker

11 Sep

Frank is a jerk. Like only the selfish, arrogant in the world can do Frank is bored with life and seeks something extraordinary. What he finds is the Lemarchard box that is rumored to bring unearthly pleasures.   What Frank quickly learns is that the human idea of pleasure is much different from the Cenobite creatures that rule the box. Caught in a different world Frank reaches out to his brother’s wife-whom he had an affair with previously-in hopes of using her to get back to earth.

What ensues is a collection of murders, greed, and lust that is both creepy and very gory. Not for the faint of heart, the novel delves into the true horrors that can exist in the human heart. 1986, 164 pages.
