In 1970s Liverpool, Clive Barker, together with a small group of university friends, made two extraordinary short films. Salome, based on the play by Oscar Wilde, and The Forbidden, based on the Faust myth. Both shorts feature early footage of Barker himself, who also did most of the special effects. Doug Bradley, who appears in Salome as King Herod, went on to play Pinhead in the Hellraiser movies.

The discovery of these ealy shorts came about when an independent television production company interviewed Barker about his work. Clips were needed for the documentary, and so the task of restoring both shorts was undertaken.
