For those of you who do not know what Nightbreed is all about, here is what all the fuss is all about (click here for the Wikipedia page) . The film came out in 1990 , was directed by Clive Barker, and is an adaption of his book Cabal. It features Craig Schafer & David Cronenberg and is a very cool monster/slasher movie hybrid. Barker is not one of the greatest film directors of all time, but he is certainly one of the best horror authors of all time... and Cabal is one of his best short stories. The monsters of the lost city of Midian are not really well described in the story, so it is super cool to see what director Barker decided they looked like once it was time for him to film the movie. And I love Cronenberg when he steps in front of the camera, cause he is super fucking creepy.
|Creepy mask Cronenberg... well done!|
Check back shortly after I get the DVD and re-watch the flick to see if it holds up to what I remember it to be. Also, check out the Occupy Meridian homepage. This is the main page for the newly finished Nightbreed: The Cabal Cut version of the film... which is an extended cut of the movie that features almost one hour of cut footage in it and gives a much better idea of what Barker intended for his adaption. It screens all around the world (upcoming screenings in France & England) and at various horror conventions around the country. I hope that one day I can view this awesome version of the film myself. Extended cut blu ray anyone?????
