Lord of Illusions (Director’s Cut)
An LA detective is drawn into an occult underworld in Clive Barker’s final film.
Dir Clive Barker
With Scott Bakula, Kevin J O’Connor, Famke Janssen, Daniel von Bargen
The third, and regrettably final, feature directed by Clive Barker remains his most underrated. Adapted from his own story The Last Illusion, the plot follows an LA detective drawn into an occult underworld after being hired to protect a popular stage magician. An ambitious mix of film noir and supernatural horror, Barker’s cinematic swansong is long overdue a critical reappraisal.
