Books of Blood: Coming to the Big Screen
Halloween is approaching which only means one thing for horror fanatics, time for a trip to the cinema for date night. Secondary to a gripping storyline and some jaw dropping scenes only one thing can fulfil your horror dreams, or should I say nightmares… Having a hot topless guy caught in the middle of a paranormal disaster.
Books of blood is based off one of many of Clive Barker’s books. From what we can see in the trailer, Rafi Gavron looks gorgeous as ever playing a self-professed medium. Although there is not yet a release date for Books of Blood in the UK, we’re able to see a little taster of Rafi undergoing an experiment in what seems to be some kind of psychology testing lab.
Shirtless Hottie Horror Scene Snippet
In this scene, Mary the psychologist (played by Anna Friel) walks into a laboratory introducing ‘Simon’ (Rafi Gavron) to a crowd on people who are stood on the other side of the room from Simon separated by a glass window. As Mary pats down the naked self-professed medium, he whispers into her ear “he’s almost here”. She proceeds to explain to the group of people that “people like Simon like to prey on grief”. As the psychologist turns to Simon and says “ready whenever you are” he states that he needs complete darkness, or rather they do.
This scene then takes a turn when the room turns from light to pitch black with flickering lights. We then see a snippet of Simon being thrown against the glass. When the lights are switched back on the room that is completely white is now covered in phrases written in red and black such as “I’m not sleeping mommy” and “the other side”. Simon is then lying down in the middle of the floor in the fetal position twitching and jerking.
What is Books of Blood about?
The storyline then proceeds to take us on a journey into “uncharted and forbidden territory through three tales tangled in space and time”. Brannon Braga, otherwise known as “The Ovrille” has co-directed the film with Seth MacFarlane. Simon and Mary take us on a tale as they investigate a haunted house where Simon is attacked by paranormal beings, who leave him with the stories of their deaths carved into his flesh. If you’re not a fan of groomsmen gory scenes, we’d recommend you look away for this one.
