Clive Barker’s Stories to Become Anime

Posted on: November 3, 2009

Clive Barker, who may not be the master of modern horror, but is pretty good at least.

In news from yesterday, AnimeNation‘s news blog found interview footage where Clive Barker mentions an upcoming project with director Kitamura Ryuhei to adapt several of the famed horror writer’s stories into anime projects. This isn’t the first time they’ve teamed up, as Kitamura adapted Barker’s tale The Midnight Meat Train to the screen in 2008.

I like what I’ve seen of Kitamura’s work, with both Versus and Godzilla: Final Wars being good, mindless popcorn flicks – combined with Clive Barker, the short anime has a good chance of succeeding at exactly what Barker and Kitamura are good at: pure entertainment without any delusions of grandeur.

It’s just too bad I’m a horror wuss, because I won’t be watching any of this.
