Clive Barker to Host Director's Cut Screening of 'Nightbreed'   

August 24, 2013 Horror great Clive Barker adapted his novel Cabal as "Nightbreed" in 1990, casting Craig Sheffer, Anne Bobby and David Cronenberg (as lethal psychotherapist Dr. Philip K. Decker) in an ambitious tale originally written as a fantastical love story occupied by monsters. Unfortunately, the production was wrought with interference, and cut and packaged as a slasher movie - though even in truncated form, its fine performances, distinctive Danny Elfman score and wildly inventive make-up and special effects work elevated "Nightbreed" far above typical genre fare.

Over the years, as rumors of found footage circulated, the film achieved a mythic status with a restored version quickly becoming the holy grail of horror. With Barker's cooperation, restoration director Russell Cherrington and producer Mark Miller assembled a new edit with more than forty minutes of excised footage, restoring plotlines, characters and scenes to best represent Barker's defining intent and bring the epic back to life.

The director's cut will screen at the Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles, Sat, Oct 26, 2013 at 7:30pm. Tickets can be found here.
