Barbie Wilde is best known for playing the Female Cenobite in Clive Barker’s Hellbound: Hellraiser II. She also featured in Death Wish 3, Grizzly II: The Concert and in the Bollywood blockbuster, Janbazz. As a member of the music-dance group Shock, she supported artists such as Gary Numan, Depeche Mode, Ultravox and Adam & the Ants in the early 1980s and released two singles on RCA Records. Wilde also wrote and hosted eight different music and film review TV programs in the UK in the 1980s and 1990s.
In 2009, Wilde moved into writing horror and crime with the publication of her first well-received Female Cenobite short horror story, “Sister Cilice”, for the Hellhound Hearts anthology, edited by Paul Kane and Marie O’Regan. The publication of her debut diary-of-a-serial-killer novel, The Venus Complex, by Comet Press in 2012 prompted America’s best-selling horror magazine Fangoria to call her “one of the finest purveyors of erotically charged horror fiction around”. The Venus Complex was released as an audio book in Autumn 2018, narrated by Hellraiser’s Doug “Pinhead” Bradley.
Wilde’s illustrated collection of short horror stories, Voices of the Damned, published by SST Publications in 2015, was called “sensual in its brutality” and “a delight for the darker senses” in a starred review from Publishers Weekly. Voices of the Damned was nominated for the Best Horror Story Collection Award by This is Horror, 2015.
Wilde is now collaborating as co-producer and co-screenplay writer with ex-Fangoria Editor-in-Chief and director Chris Alexander (Blood for Irina, Female Werewolf, Blood Dynasty) on the feature length horror movie, Blue Eyes, based on her short story of the same name.
