Nightbreed: the enduring appeal of a horror classic

Marc Buxton Jan 12, 2017

It seems that Nightbreed has always captured the imagination of horror movie fans. And with good reason...

When the push began for Nightbreed, Clive Barker’s follow up to the cult hit Hellraiser in 1990, the marketing made the film feel like just another slasher film. The confusing advertisements couldn’t seem to decide whether the film’s killer was a button-eyed, masked killer, or the film’s lead character Boone - played by Craig Sheffer - leaving fans scratching their collective heads over what this coming horror joint was even about.

The theatrical posters for Nightbreed read “Lori thought she knew everything about her boyfriend….Lori was wrong!” and the tagline couldn't have missed the point of Nightbreed more if it tried. The film was a meditation on monsters and fringe dwellers,

Code Of Honor Review

Back in the 1980s and 1990s, action cinema was largely defined by a certain level of machismo. The typical action heroes were muscle-bound, seemingly invincible and known for their ability to dispatch one-dimensional villains with an endless supply of cheesy one-liners. The work of Arnold Schwarzenegger perhaps best exemplifies this particular style of filmmaking, but other stars like Sylvester Stallone, Jean-Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal played in that very same sandbox and became international stars as a result.

Today’s most popular action films have embraced a very different approach, wherein the heroes are far more fallible and human and the violence is more grounded and visceral. Think the Bourne films or Daniel Craig’s James Bond. In recent years, the old-school style of action has largely been relegated to direct-to-dvd projects and nostalgia trips like Stallone’s The Expendables franchise. However, the new Seagal thriller, Code of Honor,

Interview: Craig Sheffer Talks Code of Honor (Exclusive)
The painful mistakes people have made in their pasts can often harrowingly influence the decisions they make about their futures, and the way they interact with their communities in the present.

Wright Minibio Pt.2: Hitchcock Heroine in His Favorite Movie

Teresa Wright in 'Shadow of a Doubt': Alfred Hitchcock heroine (image: Joseph Cotten about to strangle Teresa Wright in 'Shadow of a Doubt') (See preceding article: "Teresa Wright Movies: Actress Made Oscar History.") After scoring with The Little Foxes, Mrs. Miniver, and The Pride of the Yankees, Teresa Wright was loaned to Universal – once initial choices Joan Fontaine and Olivia de Havilland became unavailable – to play the small-town heroine in Alfred Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt. (Check out video below: Teresa Wright reminiscing about the making of Shadow of a Doubt.) Co-written by Thornton Wilder, whose Our Town had provided Wright with her first chance on Broadway and who had suggested her to Hitchcock; Meet Me in St. Louis and Junior Miss author Sally Benson; and Hitchcock's wife, Alma Reville, Shadow of a Doubt was based on "Uncle Charlie," a story outline by Gordon McDonell – itself based on actual events.

Where the Monsters Live: How the Director’s Cut of Nightbreed Revitalized Clive Barker’s Cult Classic (Part Two)

  • DailyDead
Writer’s Note: This is the second part of our 25th Anniversary retrospective for Nightbreed which celebrated its monumental birthday yesterday. You can check out part one Here.

Nightbreed may not have necessarily been a huge commercial and financial success upon its release in February 1990, but it was a hugely important film for many reasons. At a time when horror was mostly focused on sequels and slasher-centric types of stories, Clive Barker dared to not only make a film about monsters, but make a film about monsters who were also heroes, which was a remarkable feat in itself.

Something else Nightbreed is fondly remembered for by fans of Barker’s horror fantasy is the wonderfully visceral and intricate special effects work on the film by the aforementioned Bob Keen. Both Hugh Ross (“Narcisse”) and Simon Bamford (“Ohnaka”) recalled their two pivotal scenes that involved some of Keen’s effects magic-

Where the Monsters Live: How the Director’s Cut of Nightbreed Revitalized Clive Barker’s Cult Classic (Part One)

  • DailyDead
Today, Clive Barker’s wildly imaginative Nightbreed celebrates its 25th anniversary. While that is a remarkable feat in itself, the journey that the film has taken over the years has become the project’s enduring legacy within the horror genre. The recent Director’s Cut release of Nightbreed has been the ultimate vindication for Barker, who saw his vision snapped away decades ago from producers who believed they understood the world of Midian- and all its monsters- better than their creator.

Of course, that wasn’t the case, as Nightbreed received a disastrous response when it arrived in theaters, maligned mostly for its lack of subtlety and nuanced storytelling that was found within the pages of Barker’s original novella, Cabal. When Barker decided to move forward on adapting his work for the big screen, he was quick to rely on his some of his very closest friends to bring

Heather’s Favorites of 2014

  • DailyDead
Starry Eyes

A blood-soaked cautionary tale about the price of fame and sacrificing your own identity in the name of ambition, Starry Eyes is yet another fantastic reminder that the indie genre world is truly the best (and generally only) place fans can find ambitious and challenging horror tales these days. Anchored by a breakout performance by Alex Essoe, Starry Eyes is by far one of the more captivating and unforgettable horror movies I’ve seen this year and I cannot recommend it enough.

Snowpiercer

For Snowpiercer, Bong Joon-ho ventures into the sci-fi realm resulting in an experience that’s relentless, exhilarating, emotionally devastating and wholly unlike anything else released this year. A masterful blending of genres coupled with timeless political allegories, a hint of social satire and a star-studded cast who all deliver tour de force performances. Snowpiercer may not necessarily be the biggest movie that was released this year,

Nightbreed: The Director’s Cut | Blu-ray Review

Back in 1990, just prior to its release, 20th Century Fox recut Nightbreed drastically, attempting to shift its somewhat progressive, fantastical subtext into the format of a relatively standard slasher film. Though Clive Barker managed to get the film funded in part by the cult success of his oft-misunderstood examination of aberrant sexual desire, Hellraiser, the notion of marketing a film that deliberately subverted the existing hero ethos—positing outsiders as victims rather than villains—was a little too much for a wide release with a video game tie-in. The resulting film was understandably an intriguing mess that genuinely felt unfinished or at least lacking in the usual depth of purpose associated with Barker’s work.

After some years had passed and the Internet was able to facilitate conversations that would otherwise never happen, some of the cut footage was found in rough VHS form, leading to the creation of “The Cabal Cut” of the film,
