This book is part of a series of horror and dark fantasy anthologies. Strangely though here in the UK the books make no reference to their place in the series.
This book contains work from Ramsey Campbell, Lisa Tuttle and Clive Barker. Its an interesting mix of work reflecting to me their strengths in these genres. (I will admit I am no expert in the work of Lisa Tuttle but it is most certainly true for Campbell and Barker). In this volume the horror is subtle and close to home often taking on a

Not scary and most of the time not even interesting. Stories include a man with tinnitus; a woman who hallucinates that a horse is in her apartment; and a man who hates his job.

My favorite thing about used book stores is the possibility of randomly stumbling across something like "Night Visions 3: the Hellbound Heart." I've read Clive Barker's novella "The Hellbound Heart" several times, but never in its original incarnation, as the last third of this horror anthology.

The books begins with an eloquent introduction by editor George R. R. Martin, defending the genre from snobby literary types who thumb their nose at such gory drivel. Then begins the first third of the bo

Didn't enjoy the Ramsay Cambell short stories, but the Lisa Tuttle stories and the brilliant The Hellbound Heart by Clive Barker (made into the great movie Hellraiser) was worth the entrance fee as they say

Really the only story in this I enjoyed was the Hellbound Heart. I mistakenly thought the entire book was the Hellbound Heart. This story was what led to the movie Hellraiser. The rest of the stories were ehh. I do enjoy Clive Barker though so will get more of him.

Plenty to enjoy in this collection and the first place I read "The Hellbound Heart"

Where to begin with this book. I loved some of it, but struggled with a third of it. Night Visions: The Hellbound Heart is a collection of 11 stories by three different horror writers : Clive Barker, Ramsey Campbell and Lisa Tuttle.

Barker's third of the book is taken up by his novella the Hellbound Heart, which was the basis for the Hellraiser movies. It's just as visceral, creepy and exciting as you would expect. I was actually surprised by how much they adapted into the first movie, which I w

I've fancied reading "The Hellbound Heart" for years now but never been willing to pay the huge prices being asked for it in a hardcover edition. So, after a little research I found that it was originally written to go in a showcase volume of short stories - this one.

The Hellbound Heart is the outstanding story here, Clive Barker is very good when he's on form and this was shortly after the Books of Blood. But ... some of the other stories are also good. I don't warm to Ramsay Campbell's style

The Hellbound Heart was actually 5 stars but the other stories brought the total books stars down to 4. Of the 7 stories by Ramsey Campbell I felt 6 were worthy of 4 stars and 1 only 3 stars. Of Lisa Tuttle's 3 stories I rate 2 as 4 stars and 1 as 3 stars. So overall I did enjoy this book although some of the stories were better than others. Getting The Hellbound Heart and the other stories in one book was a nice bonus. I recommend this book, especially if you haven't read The Hellbound Heart. T ...more

Just skip to Lisa Tuttle and Clive Barker. Everything else was honestly hard to get through. The Hellbound Heart hooked me immediately did not disappoint.
