As you should all know, CLIVER BARKER'S NIGHTBREED was heavily chopped up by the Studio when it was initially released in 1989. And for years we've been waiting to see Clive's 2 hour and 45 minutes original vision intact (the Studio cut was about one hour and 40 minutes). And now thanks to SCREAM FACTORY we will.
Mark Miller and Cliff MacMillan annouced at the San Diego Comic Con that NIGHTBREED THE CABAL CUT will finally be released via SCREAM FACTORY on disk in 2014. Miller, MacMillan and cool cat Michael G. Plumides have been working on this project for years! Congrats gents! Awesome news! And us NIGHTBREED fans can't thank you enough! No specific release date has been annouced yet, but when we know, you'll know. NIGHTBREED is about:
Troubled twentysomething Craig Sheffer is haunted by violent dreams of serial killings and nocturnal invitations by misshapen creatures who live in a misty, mysterious land called Midia. Adapted and directed by Clive Barker (Hellraiser) from his novel Cabal, this tribute to the magical creatures of the night plays like a Jungian reinterpretation of classic myths with a modern twist. Nightbreed are the dead reborn as monsters of legend, fantasies, and nightmares who form their own outcast society in an underground city beneath an Alberta graveyard. Visionary horror director David Cronenberg steps in front of the camera to play Sheffer's unscrupulous psychiatrist, an eerie, unsettling character whose dark side is hidden under a soft-spoken manner and an eerily calm and controlled voice.
