Exclusive: First Trailer for Clive Barker’s “THE SCARLET GOSPELS”


For fans of Clive Barker, the reality of THE SCARLET GOSPELS is one that will have to be seen to be believed; after all, it’s been in development for over a decade, with Barker himself having chatted about the project on the very first episode of FANGORIA Radio. The epic novel, which finally will be available in May courtesy of Saint Martin’s Press, has long been touted as Barker’s grand masterpiece, colliding the worlds of the Cenobites and Harry D’Amour in a showdown of visceral and terrifying proportions. And now, FANGORIA is proud to present the exclusive first trailer for Clive Barker’s THE SCARLET GOSPELS!

For the unfamiliar, here is the official synopsis for THE SCARLET GOSPELS:

The gates to Hell are open and something beckons… The last of Earth’s magicians are living in fear. A Cenobite Hell Priest known as Pinhead is killing them off, gorging on their knowledge to enhance his own magical powers as part of a quest to takeover Hell. Meanwhile, Private Investigator Harry D’Amour is fulfilling the final wishes of the dead, who communicate with his business associate, the blind medium Norma Paine. But while investigating one such case, Harry inadvertently opens up a rift between hell and the real world. When nemesis Pinhead emerges through the portal, a vicious battle ensues. After failing to enlist Harry as one of his Scarlet Gospels, an elite group of indefatigable messengers who will witness his takeover of hell, Pinhead captures Norma and Harry realizes he must go through hell – literally – to save her.


As a big fan of Clive as filmmaker, artist and writer, THE SCARLET GOSPELS can’t come soon enough, especially considering the resurgence of interest towards his film work via Blu-ray re-releases. In any case, Clive Barker’s THE SCARLET GOSPELS will finally be available on May 19th, 2015, and you can check out the exclusive trailer below.
