Legendary horror/fantasy filmmaker and author Clive Barker will be joining attendees of the 2009 San Diego Comic-Con to introduce a free screening of Book of Blood, the film adaptation based on his short stories The Book of Blood and On Jerusalem Street. Book of Blood stars Sophie Ward and Jonas Armstrong and is directed by John Harrison.

For one screening only, Book of Blood will be featured on the big screen, in anticipation of its September 22, 2009 release on Blu-ray and DVD.

The free screening will be held on Friday, July 24th at 10 pm at the Gaslamp 15 Theatre, located at 701 Fifth Avenue, San Diego. A ticket is required for admittance, but does not guarantee admission. Seating will be on a first come, first served basis. Tickets for the screening will be distributed at the Lionsgate booth on the San Diego Comic-Con convention floor and will not be available at the Gaslamp box office.

Then on Saturday, July 25th, from 11am to 1pm, Barker will be signing autographs for fans on the convention floor. Ticket drawing for the signing begins at 9am in the Autograph area of the Con. There is a two item maximum for the signing. Free Book of Blood mini-posters will also be provided to fans, while supplies last.
