Salome is one of two short films that horror writer Clive Barker directed before he went on to make the cult classic 'Hellraiser'. While you cant go into a short film expecting the likes of Hellraiser, Clive Barker doe...展开s deliver an interesting spectacle with this film and, like many director's pre-hit short films, you can see some early signs of the man's later work in this film. Salome only runs at about twenty minutes, and it has no dialogue; so the plot is non-existent. This doesn't matter, however, as it is the imagery and atmosphere that is important; and Clive Barker, even with only twenty minutes to play with, more than succeeds in impressing on that level. The action takes place in a dank abyss, and through the dark atmosphere and empty surroundings, Barker is able to show this. While this film doesn't have enough about it to aptly call it 'good', by the same standards; it's not bad either. Fans of Hellraiser will enjoy the film for it's style, and fans of atmosphere will find lots to like also. Salome isn't worth going out of your way to see; but if you come across a copy, it's well worth seeing.
