Clive Barker's quotes

  • All I've ever wanted to do is darken the day and brighten the night.
  • I don't take accusations of selling out lightly.
  • Some people think that horror films are some sort of second class filmmaking, and the only way to bypass that thinking is being proud of the fact that we do it.
  • I firmly believe that a story is only as good as the villain.
  • Most 'Horror' movies nowadays aren't horror movies. They don't strike me as being horrific. That's why I am very careful when using the word 'Horror' to describe something
  • Pinhead, who doesn't do a decent, nice thing through eight movies still manages to receive fan mail from women who would like to bear his children
  • I remember when I watched Hellraiser (1987) with my mother. She cried when she saw my name in the opening credits and I had to tell her that that was the happiest she was going to be for the next two hours.
  • Neil Gaiman is a star. He constructs stories like some demented cook might make a wedding cake, building layer upon layer, including all kinds of sweet and sour in the mix.
  • 'Underworld' was my first filmed book. I think there are about seven of my lines in it.
  • Horror fiction shows us that the control we believe we have is purely illusory, and that every moment we teeter on chaos and oblivion.
  • I used to think that you'd open the door and there was Narnia. Increasingly, I think it's all around us.
  • People who've been good at this stuff are often Brits, and I see myself as continuing that tradition.
  • Something I'm often asked at conventions is "What do you take to see this stuff?" and I don't! I just use my natural abilities.
  • [Sacrament] Living and dying we feed the fire.
  • Nothing else wounds so deeply and irreparably. Nothing else robs us of hope so much as being unloved by one we love.
  • [Imajica] He cast his eyes around, looking for something sweet to spend his last gaze on.
