Books of Blood doesn't pass the horror test...

October 23, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Barker's books were confettied and assembled by leaf blower, along with a few pilfered pages from Jordan Peele

October 20, 2020 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

With a certain kind of horror, a laugh's as good as a scream, and "Books of Blood" delivers plenty of the former.

October 8, 2020 | Full Review…

Beyond fleeting moments of graphic violence and nudity, the knife's edge here is actually quite dull.

The greatest sin here is that Books of Blood is too generic to be remembered, despite bearing the name of someone who redefined the genre.

October 7, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The main problem is there's a whole lot of scary out there this time of year, and Books of Blood winds up in a sort-of creative no-man's land. Even for undemanding souls, this is a pretty skeletal construct.
