Barker Rips Roth, Zombie, Current State of Horror

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.

I will be interested in seeing the remake of this. "Torture porn" appropriate tag, there really is a lot of this about.

Don't know if you saw, but one of my early posts had to do with the Hellraiser remake. It will be interesting to see what they do with it.

I don't see a need for a hellraiser remake. I'm also not so much a fan of 'torture porn', I also think as appropriate as the tag is for that whole sub-genre, it just screams trash. Horror can produce better films.

Jo, I'm totally in agreement with you on this. I gotta say, when I say Hostel it just really replused me, and as you know, I LOVE horror movies. I just didnt event consider it a horror movie, it just seemed to be about getting enjoyment from watching people being tortured.
