    Synopsis


    Nightbreed
    Multimedia horror maven Clive Barker followed the success of his feature directorial debut, Hellraiser, with this equally surreal effort, based on his novella Cabal. The story involves the plight of Aaron Boone (Craig Sheffer), a young man tormented by visions of monstrous, graveyard-dwelling creatures. Seeking the aid of his clinically cold therapist Dr. Decker (played by Canadian horror auteur David Cronenberg) in deciphering his nightmares, Boone becomes convinced that his frequent blackouts are linked to a recent spate of mutilation murders in the area. His frantic search for the truth leads him to the subterranean city of Midian, the dwelling place of a mythical race of undead nocturnal monsters known as the "Nightbreed." But it is only after he is cornered and shot dead by police that Boone's real journey begins -- he finds himself resurrected as one of the Breed. Though Barker's unique and graphic vision is somewhat blunted by choppy editing (thanks to relentless tampering from the studio), this is nevertheless a fine sophomore project from a talented storyteller; the central conceit of presenting the monsters as the "good guys" -- at least compared to the gun-and-bible-toting lunatics who hunt them -- is handled with verve and originality. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi

      For anyone who's a fan of Clive Barker, you have to see this movie! My wife and I are huge fans, from his movies and books, to his amazing artwork. To us, Clive Barker can do no wrong, (but that's us.) This movie is based off of the book, Cabal, and is written for the screen and directed by Clive Barker. This film is full of imagination, suspense and intrigue. It's a classic tale of man vs. monster, but who is the real monster? This movie originally came out in 1990, but other than the 80s hair and clothes, you'd never tell. Clive Barker's always been ahead of his time. So, if you're a fan of the He11raiser series, Candyman, Lord of Illusions, etc., then I think you'll love this movie. Buy It!!!

      Clive Barker's imagination is one that can rarely be matched and Nightbreed has creativity in spades. The melodrama and some of the acting, coupled with some of the plotting, however, does not help this movie standup as something I would watch on repeat. I actually enjoyed this movie more when I was a younger kid. The new footage changes the formula in a very positive way, far better ending in my opinion, and if you are a horror genre collector I do feel this is easily a must own even if I am not rating it as completely great.

      ANY movie or story (including his comic books) by Clive Barker is worth watching/reading. Shout Factory has done a tremendous job in bringing this gem of a movie to blu-ray. Re-editing has brought the directoirs vision to life for the movie. Buy it with confidence in getting a quality blu-ray.

      I always thought this was Clive Barker’s next best directing effort after Hellraser and it’s great to see an extended cut. The extras are worth swing alone if you’re a big fan.

      As I never saw the original, it was pretty cool to see this for the first time on Blu-ray. Knowing they added more footage and re-edited the film makes it worth the price. I liked it a lot and it's a nice addition for my collection

      Glad they recovered the original footage and were able to show the version Barker wanted to show. Well worth the wait! Hope they release the Cabal Cut sometime soon.
