Barbie Wilde is best known as the Female Cenobite in Clive Barker’s classic cult horror movie Hellbound: Hellraiser II. She has also performed in cabaret in Bangkok, Thailand, robotically danced in the Bollywood blockbuster, Janbazz, played a vicious mugger in the vigilante thriller Death Wish III, appeared as a drummer for an electronica band in the so-called “Holy Grail of unfinished and unreleased 80’s horror” Grizzly II: The Predator, AKA Grizzly II: The Concert (starring then unknowns George Clooney, Laura Dern and Charlie Sheen), and was a founder member of the mime/dance/music group, SHOCK, which supported such artists as Gary Numan, Ultravox, Depeche Mode and Adam & the Ants in the 1980s.
Barbie presented and wrote eight different music and film review TV programs in the UK in the 1980s and 1990s. She interviewed such pop personalities as Cliff Richard, Iggy Pop, John Lydon (AKA the Sex Pistol’s Johnny Rotten), The Sisters of Mercy, Roger Taylor of Queen, The B52’s, Lisa Stansfield and Jimmy Sommerville, as well as actors Nicolas Cage and Hugh Grant.
Horror short stories by Barbie include “Sister Cilice” (for the Hellbound Hearts Anthology, edited by Paul Kane and Marie O’Regan), “U for Uranophobia”
In November 2012, Comet Press published Barbie’s first dark crime novel, The Venus Complex. Reviews so far:
“... the Professor appears, even in his writings, to be a normal man, perfectly capable of living alongside any one of us without raising suspicion. And that is Wilde's genius in charting the rise of a sociopath of cleverness and cunning enough to match that even of Dr Hannibal Lecter (God knows where and how she did her research).”
-John Gilbert, Fear Magazine UK
“...Barbie Wilde's novel is distinctly Hitchcockian in its portrayal of murderous obsession.”
“This brilliant look into the mind of a serial killer is full of poetic anger and beautiful vitriolic ranting, that it makes you wonder from which pit of hell the lovely Barbie came from. In a genre saturated with bland serial killers, and even blander plots, this book shines out like a beacon.”
-Ginger Nuts of Horror: Books of the Year 2012
“A novel by a female Cenobite that gives the world a smart, artistic, cynical, cultured serial killer who could give Hannibal Lecter a run for his money. On top of that, this is a poignant, funny, sexually-charged, hardcore critique of popular culture and a deconstruction of relationships, academia, and art.”
-Top Books of 2012, HorrorTalk
“… one of the best depictions of steadily mounting evil this side of Poe. Or Clive Barker, for that matter.”
"... addictive, gory and will evoke both repulsion and empathy." Scream Magazine (UK)
“Once an onscreen Cenobite, she now elicits fear with the written word.” “Wilde, of course, starred as the Female Cenobite in HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER II and as a punk thug in the late Michael Winner’s cult classic DEATH WISH 3. She’s well known in the UK as a media personality, however, and in recent years as one of the finest purveyors of erotically charged horror fiction around.”
Review-Synopsis by award-winning author Paul Kane:
After purposefully killing his wife in a car accident, art professor Michael Friday finds his perspective on things has become a little…warped. Via his personal journal, we’re allowed into his mind to slowly watch the disintegration of it, bearing witness to his unnerving sexual cravings and ideas about killing: intertwined with the paintings he loves so much. As Michael writes, he’s “turning into something dead”; but at the same time he wants to be somebody, not a nobody.
“Using his diary to rant against the world in general – including everything from banks to popular culture, from national holidays like Christmas to politics – he reveals more about the big, gaping hole in his own life. But as the novel goes on the first person narrative tensely builds up, displaying his dark dreams and innermost thoughts; his way of filling that void and presenting his grisly “works of art” to the world. As intelligent and cultured as Hannibal, easily as disturbing as American Psycho and infinitely less “reassuring”
Barbie is now co-writing the book for a musical drama with composer-lyricist Georg Kajanus and screenwriter-
