GET READY to explore the labyrinth of Barbie Wilde's creative mind, whose dark and disturbing interior world teems with the voices of: rebellious female demons, devilish witches, semen-hungry neo-vampires, raging gods and home invaders, the fiends of sleep paralysis, pint-sized store-front preachers with a whiff of sulfur, body horrors of the most grotesque kind, clandestine aliens and Zulu zombies just for starters!

These truly are the Voices of the Damned: eleven (11) short horror stories from actress Barbie Wilde (Hellbound: Hellraiser II, Death Wish 3) and dark crime-horror novelist "The Venus Complex." Fangoria dubbed Miss Wilde as “one of the finest purveyors of erotically charged horror fiction around.”

Each thrilling story is accompanied by seductive, haunting, full color artworks and illustrations created by some of the most imaginative artists in the genre: Clive Barker, Nick Percival, Steve McGinnis, Daniele Serra, Eric Gross, Tara Bush, Vincent Sammy and Ben Baldwin.

SST Publisher Paul Fry says: “I’m really excited to be publishing Barbie Wilde’s first collection. The book really is a work of art, from Barbie’s incredible stories, which are beautifully written and laced with wickedly erotic content, to the extraordinary full color artwork and illustrations. 
The 7 x 10 inch oversized format really displays the full color artwork to its very best. The artists that have very kindly agreed to work on this book really add that special touch to an already fantastic collection of short stories. I’m really honored to be able to publish everyone involved, especially Barbie, as she has her very own visceral style and unique talent for sick and twisted storytelling.”

About the Author: Barbie Wilde is best known for playing the Female Cenobite in Clive Barker’s classic British cult horror movie: HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER II. Before moving to the UK, Wilde attended Syracuse University in New York State, majoring in Drama and Anthropology. She continued her education in London, studying Drama, Classical Mime and Art History, before joining Britain’s largest classical mime troupe, SILENTS.

Miss Wilde has performed in cabaret in Bangkok, Thailand; robotically danced in the Indian blockbuster, JANBAAZ; was a vicious thug in Michael Winner’s DEATH WISH 3; and played a drummer in the so-called “Holy Grail of unfinished and unreleased 1980’s horror:” GRIZZLY II: THE CONCERT, which also featured then unknowns George Clooney, Laura Dern and Charlie Sheen. In the early 1980s, Barbie Wilde danced professionally at the top nightclubs and rock venues of New York, London and Amsterdam with her group called SHOCK. They released two singles on RCA Records and supported such artists as Gary Numan, Ultravox, Depeche Mode and Adam and the Ants.

Barbie Wilde also wrote and presented eight music and film review TV programs in the 1980s and 1990s, interviewing such pop personalities as Iggy Pop, The Sisters of Mercy, The B-52s and Johnny Rotten, as well as actors Nicolas Cage and Hugh Grant. Wilde was also a Casting Director for the BBC’s THE BUDDHA OF SUBURBIA and for MTV’s THE REAL WORLD: LONDON.

From 2009-2015, Miss Wilde contributed short stories to 14 horror or crime anthologies and publications and in 2012, Comet Press published Wilde’s debut serial killer novel, THE VENUS COMPLEX.

Publisher's Weekly Featured Review

In this impressive collection of short stories, actor Wilde (who played the Female Cenobite in the film classic Hellbound: Hellraiser II) reveals a world of beautiful fear. The most delightfully terrifying entries form the Cilicium Trilogy, which reveals the complex origin and destiny of Sister Cilice. This character-focused exploration is sensual in its brutality. In “Writer's Block,” Wilde combines the psychological torture of an unknown artist with the erotic egotism of fandom to create a fascinating sexual horror.

She creates a dreadful family legacy in “Botophobia,” in which there are not merely skeletons in the closet but unworldly powers hidden in the basement. Wilde's mastery of shocking violence is given full rein in subjects ranging from reclusive self-imprisonment to the exploration of European nightmares. As much a chilling collection of frightful fiction as a delight for the darker senses, this is a satisfying triumph in a befitting, unforgiving, style. (Oct.)” - Publisher's Weekly


“Voices of the Damned is raw, twisted, horrifying and seductive. Barbie Wilde takes no prisoners & she does not disappoint!” - Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Dead of Night and Ghostwalkers

“This collection of eleven short stories confirms Wilde as a foremost author of erotic horror fiction”  - Jon Towlson, Starburst magazine and author of Subversive Horror Cinema: Countercultural Messages of Films from Frankenstein to the Present

“...her work is so uncanny and fearless, it is a must have for any horror aficionado. - The Soska Sisters (Dead Hooker in a Trunk, American Mary, See No Evil 2, Vendetta)

“Raised from the dead, this phantasmagoria of tales offers well-written mini-nightmares that will traumatize, titillate, and stick in your mind long after you’ve closed the book.”  - Filmmaker Izzy Lee, Fangoria Online

“If testosterone jumping erotica combined with heart racing fear is your bag of horror then this is just what you’re looking for…” - Scream Horror Magazine UK

Brandy Noir Is Now In Her Creative Phase And Needs YOU To Help Her Reach Her Milestone Goals

Painter, Songwriter, Poet, Actress, Goth Model,
Cosmetics Formulator and Sorceress 


    February 2nd, 2016 - DIABOLIQUE  News Break!
    IMPORTANT message from Brandy Noir: I am a visual artist, actress, singer, model, makeup artist, SPFX artist, and cosmetics formulator. Painting, music, sewing, performance art, acting, photography, and design have always been a major part of my life. I was greatly inspired by my great uncle, the much beloved multi-talented vaudevillian and famed comedian Jimmy Durante. Before I ever stepped foot in front of a camera, I was a traditional artist with humble beginnings as an art college dropout and a nerdy tinkerer pulling apart computers and rebuilding them with better parts.

    Despite my art teachers attempts to sway me from what I truly loved, it never stopped me from daring to dream and taking risks. I sought out those who would teach me the things that intrigued me the most and absorbed their teachings like a sponge. By doing these short term apprenticeships, I have learned more than I ever possibly could in any school. Because of my hands on experience in a vast array of artistic ventures, I am well versed in a multitude of creative undertakings and am always up for the next challenge that awaits me.

   Brandy says... "Listen to a snippet off my upcoming album and support me on Patreon here so I can get this album officially released!" 


     "Help me complete the recording and final release my album. Studio time is costly, but I will be able to complete and release my much anticipated album only with your help. Become a patron here"

    As far as modeling and photography goes, I am very passionate about working on both sides of the camera and have experienced much fulfillment in my career by having such multifaceted capabilities. My short time in college theater and extensive studies of film noir lighting and storytelling through self-portraiture has afforded me great self-awareness and depth of knowledge for being in front of and behind the camera, intuitively knowing exactly what mood it desires. Needless to say, this has all been an exciting journey thus far, and I am eager to see what direction the next shaky step into the beautiful unknown takes me. 

    Quote from Brandy... "My vocals over a stop motion animation collaboration between Thomas Kuntz and myself during the making for his automaton for Guillermo del Toro's Crimson Peak. Please support me on Patreon here so I can get my album released!"

    My latest project was costuming for Mr. Thomas Kuntz's automaton featured in Guillermo del Toro's hit film, "Crimson Peak." I am currently producing an album with the ultra talented Paul Mauled, bassist for "The Undead" (former Misfits Bobby Steele's awesome band) and that is where you come in. 

    Though I suffer from an incurable autoimmune disease, Hashimoto's thyroiditis and debilitating spinal injuries, I still press on. Nothing is going to stop me from living out my dreams, not even intimidating piles of medical bills. Being creative is my reason for being, it is my lifeblood and what keeps me going despite my illness. Please help me to continue to create. Releasing an album has been a lifetime dream for me that has not yet been realized, but with your help, we can make it happen together. Your love and support means the world to me. Thank you from the bottom of my aching heart.
