'''Clive Barker''' (born October 5, 1952) is a British horror and dark fantasy author responsible for over a dozen novels, several movies, a few graphic novels, some artwork, and a couple of video games as well. His works almost always feature sexual overtones that are graphic, disturbing, and disgusting in nature. His stories are usually set in a contemporary urban setting, but with AnotherDimension or many dimensions. On the SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism, his stories lie pretty far on the cynical side, with heavily flawed but sympathetic protagonists and an overall dark and gritty tone, although some of his novels have had [[EarnYourHappyEnding happy and magically enchanting endings]], and have featured themes such as love and [[HeelFaceTurn redemption]].

* BedsheetGhost: The protagonist of the short story "Confessions of a (Pornographer's) Shroud" is a straight-laced Catholic man who is murdered and framed as a porn kingpin, and possesses the shroud covering him in the morgue to take his revenge. The story is a BlackComedy based on the ridiculous visual gag of a bedsheet ghost murdering people in increasingly graphic fashion.

* FantasticNoir: His films ''Film/{{Candyman}}'' (which was based off a short story of the same name written by him) and ''Film/LordOfIllusions'' qualify, however, the latter really falls into the FilmNoir territory in comparison to the former.

* ThatPoorCat: Barker really dislikes cats, and it shows. If a cat appears in a story (e.g. ''The Yattering and Jack''), it ''will'' meet a horribly gruesome demise.
