Nightbreed, The Director's Cut

Nightbreed, The Director's Cut

Directed by Clive Barker

svg-play Trailer

A wrongly-accused man seeks refuge in an underground kingdom of grotesque monsters in Clive Barker's freaky and frightening fan favorite. Young Aaron is tormented by visions of monstrous, graveyard-dwelling creatures. But his creepy therapist (director David Cronenberg) offers little solace. When he's framed for serial slayings in the area, he heads for Midian, a place where undead monsters known as the "Nightbreed" live. Barker's follow-up to HELLRAISER developed a cult following on video, and its recent restoration proves its importance in horror cinema.

A wanted man seeks refuge in an underground kingdom of grotesque monsters.

Cast: Craig Sheffer, Anne Bobby, David Cronenberg

I...enjoy this movie, but honestly, it feels more like an advertisement for what could have happened rather than what actually ended up being the end product. I think Cronenberg, Barker, and Elfman could have gone much deeper into 'Books of Blood'/etc. territory rather than listening to hollywood moguls and putting out something more 'satisfying.' Not really a horror movie...more of a horror-ish carnival farce.

Classic. Wish the original plan to make a triology had happened.

Clive Barker does it again! This time, with overt homosexual context rather than his usual subtext. It is a pleasure to watch. Sweet characters, impressive makeup/costumes/sets, and a whacky plot to boot. Definitely worth the watch for the strangeness alone.
