Topic: Damnation Game

For those of you who havent read this novel by Clive Barker, Damnation Game is a faustian tale of a wealthy mans deal with a most evil necromancer (wizard but with dead things) and how when the time comes to collect he tries to weezle out, in the middle of this story, the gambler hires an ex boxer to protect him, things get out of hand when the evil necromancer does things to the ex boxer such as possesss his gf (i heard this in a review long ago i believe). The book is also very grotesque since the necromancer obviously deals with dead things some of them i hear who eat razor blades for fun, the story takes place in europe and in a underworld where rich poeple dabble in black magic and other such things which are truly hidioes, the novel has said to show the worst in human kind in some instances. This is not your regular pictchfork weilding devil comes out of the ground in a puff of smoke kinda movie its very viseral

Re: Damnation Game

maybe they should make this into a comic book adaptation i always thought that you lose less of the plot in a comic then when you make a book into a movie and vice versa.
