If this trailer (included below and branded with the beloved Red Band) for Book of Blood is any indication, writer/director John Harrison saw something in the tiny story I didn't. Harrison looks to have expanded the premise of a house built on the intersection of several 'highways of the dead' substantially, even mixing in from "On Jerusalem Street: A Postscript", an entry from the sixth volume of Barker's anthology. The scale of the story has evolved so much so that the only thing I recognize from page-to-screen is the carved-by-ghosts body of the main character.
Normally I'd chide an adaptation that deviates considerably from the source material, but the UK production frankly looks better than I ever expected it would. Earning even more favor with this jaded horror fan is the fact that I'm finally reminded of what a real Red Band trailer should contain. I'm happy to say do not click play after the jump if you're at a place of work.
