Nightbreed: Director's Cut Comes Out in 2014
New Version for the Masses on DVD/BD in the US
Last year, the news surfaced that the totally new director's cut of the Clive Barker adaptation Nightbreed started to raise fan hopes. Would they finally see this version of the movie after they fought so hard for it with petitions and campaigns? It looks like it, since the US distributor Shout! Factory has now released a statement announcing the Cabal Cut for a release in 2014.
Clive Barker himself had the following to say about it:
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.
We'll be back with more details on this as the story develops.
