After the cult Clive Barker hit Nightbreed was released in 1990 rumors began to swirl of the major cuts to the film prior to the release and that there was plenty of more footage to complete Barker’s original vision. Now thanks to Shout Factory and their Scream Factory brand fans are finally getting the complete full version of the film restored and re-released, that is not only a more faithful adaptation of Clive Barker’s book “Cabal,” but what it was originally intended to be.
With the new release Clive Barker was quoted as saying, “I had a dream about the tribes of the moon. They would live in a city called Midian and, though they were monsters of every shape and size, they would be the heroes of a movie called “Nightbreed.” However, when I made the movie, the studio was not comfortable with this inversion of the classic structure. They wanted the monsters to be simple-minded scare machines, while I wanted them to be the dark side of all of us, mysterious and misunderstood. Finally, with this new version of “Nightbreed,” which contains over forty five minutes of previously unseen material, my original vision has been realized. Come with me to Midian, the city of monsters. The tribes of the moon await us.”
This is sure to be one of the most exciting releases from Scream Factory for quite some time and please all the fans that have been begging for this release for years so be sure to grabs yours when it hits shelves in 2014.
