The Clive Barker Terror Timeline marches on into 1988 for a story Clive came up with the initial concept for and oversaw as executive producer and what may be the greatest horror sequel of all time....Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988). We'll look at why Barker didn't return to the director's chair and why director Tony Randel was chosen to continue the great work started in the first film, which Cenobite actors returned to reprise their roles, Barker's as well as fan and critical reactions to the film, and of course we'll discuss the infamous deleted "Cenobite Surgeon Scene" and so much more.

SHV - S09E03 - Hellraiser (1987)
By far the most anticipated episode of Season 9 has arrived, and it is time to open the lament configuration as Seeking Human Victims puts Hellraiser (1987) on the slab. Like most shows when we cover the landmark and iconic horror films, this is a giant-sized episode clocking in at around an a hour and 40 minutes. We look at the origins of the film in one of Clive Barker's novellas to the reason he stepped in to the directors chair himself. We'll talk the origin of the cenobites, how Pinhead became the face of the story even though that wasn't the original plan, changes that were made from the source material, how Barker's unique vision was brought to life and so much more. Don't miss this episode! Wherever you find podcasts.

SHV - S09E01 - Underworld (1985)
Shit's been weird lately in the world y'all, so we're just leaning into it in 2021 with one of the most depraved, sadistic & creative writers in horror history. Welcome to Seeking Human Victims Season 9: The Clive Barker Terror Timeline! This is a little different than our previous TT seasons (Carpenter, Craven) in that Barker has only directed a small handful of films so he falls more into that Stephen King category of legendary creators as a writer who's works have been adapted many times over.
In episode 1, we're looking at Barker's background and early life, his initial fame as a playwright and his transition into literature. The film we're covering was his first work on a film of any kind and he was hired to write the script for director George Pavlou after meeting him at a dinner party. The movie is 1985's "Underworld", and we're not talking vampires, werewolves & Kate Beckinsale but underground mutants, hookers & hoodlums in this late night British cable find!

SHV - Bonus Episode - 2020 Year In Review
Here is a special bonus year in review episode before we kick off Season 9 next week.
A couple of disclaimers:
- This episode is just Dan who recorded some quick, informal thoughts on the year. These are Dan's opinions and are his alone and don't necessarily reflect the rest of the Seeking Human Victims broadcast team or One Good Scare Productions as a whole. He talks about the various OGS projects and accomplishments that 2020 brought, goes over what his favorite movies of the year were, and pays some tribute to his fallen friends from the wrestling business.
- Dan totally forgot to mention the movie "HOST" from director Rob Savage. It was THE film of the pandemic and captured the isolation and dread many of us were feeling. It was even recorded entirely on Zoom! That was another of his favorites of 2020 and is also streaming on Shudder.
