ScreamCast 34: Nightbreed (1990)


The long-awaited Director’s Cut of Nightbreed is here! Sean and Brad discuss the new cut of the film and the two separate Scream Factory editions with director and self-proclaimed Nightbreed enthusiast Zach Shildwachter (@zachforzombies).

The Flick:

Nightbreed (1990)

Director: Clive Barker
Written By: Clive Barker
Starring: Craig Sheffer, David Cronenberg, Anne Bobby

“A rip-roaring monster flick, all the stops out and pumping with imagination.” – John Stanley, Creature Features

For the first time on home video, you can experience Clive Barker’s original director’s cut of Nightbreed with over 40 minutes of new footage, all mastered in high definition from the original camera negative!

This Limited Edition, 3-Disc Set includes the theatrical cut, on Blu-Ray for the first time, and a bonus disc of additional extras!

Boone (Craig Sheffer) may be a troubled young man, but his troubles are just beginning. Set up as the fall guy in a string of slasher murders, he decides he’ll hide by crossing the threshold that separates “us” from “them” and sneak into the forbidden subterranean realm of Midian. Boone will live among the monsters.

Hellraiser creator Clive Barker writes (adapting his novel Cabal) and directs this vivid leap into horror that asks: in the battle of man vs. monster, who’s really the monster? The answer supplies flesh-crawling suspense, sudden fear, a colorful Danny Elfman score and a creepy array of shape-shifting beings. They are the Nightbreed: denizens of a world beyond death, beyond the imagination, perhaps beyond anything you’ve seen.

    Thanks for covering the film. If you’re interested in any of this I kept a journal while editing the film. It’s got notes from Clive, a music video I cut for Johnny Get Angry and an unreleased commentary track with producer Mark Miller and myself.

    Thanks for reviewing the film in a way that wouldn’t make me unfollow you. You’ve made your mothers proud!
