Lord of Illusions (1995)

Continuing our Pride Month marathon, we're checking in with Clive Barker's third (and final) directorial effort 'Lord of Illusions', which features the first (and only) live-action appearance of Barker's recurring protagonist Harry D'Amour (Scott Bakula).

Topics up for discussion include: forehead buttholes, studio interference leading to a Director's Cut, mid-'90s special effects, magic vs. illusion and queer henchman Butterfield's Visible Penis Line.

Also, Trace lauds everything cult-related in the film, but struggles with all of the noir elements. Joe gushes over all things Famke Janssen. And both of us praise Barker for the unapologetic queerness that he injects into so much of his work, paving the way for queer horror outlets like us.
