THE HELLBOUND HEART: This production has done the impossible and surpassed the original adaptation. You may shout heresy, but the combination of first-class acting, more faithful respect to the source material and a perfect soundscape makes this a superior adaptation.
Jim McLeod - Ginger Nuts of Horror
THE HELLBOUND HEART: You might think you know Hellraiser, but finally here’s an authentic British version of The Hellbound Heart without those annoying Americanisms that crept into the movie. These are also very different Cenobites, and movie poster boy Pinhead is a very different beast. 10/10
Nick Joy - Sci-Fi Bulletin
GRANDMA GUIGNOL: The always amazing Anne Reid... plays her strange stories straight, like an Alan Bennett heroine, and Grandma Guignol develops nicely over its episodes.
Miranda Sawyer - The Observer
BLOOD ON SATAN'S CLAW: Manages to outshine its source material in moments of true terror... easily one of the best adaptations Audible Studios have made to date, and a must-buy for any fan of quintessentially English horror.
Callum Shephard: Starbust Magazine
THE HELLBOUND HEART: This production will get its hooks into you... rivals Clive Barker’s film adaptation, Hellraiser (and is a worthy alternative to the audiobook narrated by Clive Barker himself) 9.5/10
Ryan Danhauser - The Clive Barker Podcast
BLOOD ON SATAN'S CLAW: Delivers more than two hours of a world going mad from the bottom up, in a production that bristles with fear both ancient and modern, and keeps you constantly on edge, waiting for the next episode of ghastly, demonic bullying to come and put you through the wringer

THE SCARIFYERS - THE GNOMES OF DEATH: It’s great to be able to retreat into the lunatic world of the Scarifyers.... Guest stars Matthew Holness and Phil Rose join in the fun with gusto and as ever, writers Simon Barnard and Paul Morris throw in as many mad ideas as the script can contain. There’s even more of a feeling of the colour episodes of The Avengers than there was before... Madcap extraordinary fun.
Paul Simpson - Sci-Fi Bulletin
BAKER'S END: THE HAPPENSTANCE POX: Colin Baker is marvellous. So marvellous, I realise as I write this that he has injected a breath of fresh air into something that I didn’t realise even needed it... Can Colin be the King of Cats for a bit longer please?
Bex Ferriday - Mass Movement Magazine
THE SCARIFYERS - THE GNOMES OF DEATH: They may have been out of action for a couple of years, but The Scarifyers haven’t missed a beat in their downtime and The Gnomes of Death slides straight back into their delightfully ridiculous and wonderfully absurd universe with ease, proving that the best series, like the finest of wines, just get better with age.
