GB, 1987 | Length: 93min | FSK: 16 | Director: Clive Barker Cast: Andrew Robinson, Clare Higgins, Ashley Laurence

Twisted and grotesque, utterly bizarre and entirely ridiculous, the 1987 directorial debut from British horror novelist Clive Barker soon became a classic of the horror genre. Based on Barker's novella "The Hellbound Heart", the film involves the resurrection of Frank (Chapman), who had opened the door to an alternate dimension and had his body torn to pieces by creatures known as Cenobites. Years later, Frank's brother Larry moves into their late mother's abandoned house with his wife Julia, where an accident opens a portal to Hell and triggers Frank's resurrection. The film is so gleefully vicious, so relentlessly grim, with set-pieces and special effects so astonishing and atmospheric that it has been called one of the most genuinely disturbing movies of the century.
