The Hellbound Heart by Clive Barker

Clive Barker is widely acknowledged as the master of nerve-shattering horror. The Hellbound Heart is one of his best, one of the most dead-frightening stories you are likely to ever read, a story of the human heart and all the great terrors and ecstasies within.
At last he had solved the puzzle of Lemarchand's box. He was standing on the threshold of a world of heightened sensations. In moments the Cenobites - who had dedicated an eternity to the pursuit of sensuality - would be here. They would reveal dark secrets that would transform him forever.
From Goodreads

It is definitely a scary splatter horror story. A bit too much splatter for me but good none the less.  I liked the idea of Lemarchand's box which is the connection between our world and the Cenobites and the way it was kept in circulation in our world.
