Lord Of Illusions (1995)

3 / 5

Genre: Horror

Not one of Clive Barker's best adaptations, but it's certainly an alright story. It's about a Private investigator who happens to run into a weirdo cult. The cult believe their leader Nix is going to be resurrected. Nix is well evil, he has control over the elements and is rather perverse. The gore is rather nicely done, and it definitely is a horrific idea, even if it seems very far-fetched. At the same time the story seems like it could have been made into a better movie, but it'll do. Something to rent somewhere down the line, but definitely not something to run out and buy.
