The What? Clive Barker's The Life of Death
It’s Christmastime in London, but mortality, not merriment, is on everyone’s minds. A serial killer is terrorizing the British capital leaving a trail of victims in his wake. Elaine, however, has been dealing with life and death matters on a more personal scale. While going through the healing process from a life-saving hysterectomy, she becomes fascinated with death. Her morbid obsession leads her to an old church being demolished and a mysterious man who shares her dark curiosity. While dealing with her lost ability to give life and her recent brush with death, she stumbles upon a terrible secret buried beneath the stones of the ruined church. Clive Barker’s The Life of Death is a journey of transformation and restoration from beyond the grave.
