In a very candid interview with Bloody-Disgusting.com, kinky horror maven Clive Barker took a controversial stand against the current trend of so-called "torture porn". After killing a lot of time talking about video games (yawn...), Barker--best known as the creator of Hellraiser and Candyman--was asked what he sees as the future of horror, to which he responded:
"I don’t want horror to become what Eli Roth does and what Rob Zombie does because that would be highly detrimental to the genre. I have no moral problem with this torture porn stuff; it’s just that I’m bored with it."
Barker goes on to stress the importance of getting back to storytelling in horror films, and also seems less than enthusiastic for the latest installment in the Saw series. You can check out the entire interview here.
