Odd, but not uninteresting horror opus from Clive Barker.
High concept, wavering script, completely weird.
A shocking, thrilling, anything goes film noir bloodbath that even has a baboon as a character!

...spooky atmosphere and mood, good acting, good pacing, good direction. And one of the biggest shortcomings I've seen in an otherwise promising horror film.
