GrimmFest 2012: Nightbreed: The Cabal Cut Review

6 October 2012 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Clive Barker/Russell Cherrington

Starring: Craig Sheffer, Anne Bobby, David Cronenberg, Charles Haid, Doug Bradley, Hugh Ross, Malcolm Smith.

Running Time: 144 Minutes

Certificate: 18

Synopsis: Aaron Boone is a young man plagued by the dreams of a city named Midian and the grostesque creatures that inhabit it. When wrongly accused as a serial-murderer, he seeks out the place that he has always felt connected to and in turn, fulfilling his destiny in this otherworldly realm…

Looking back at Clive Barker’s Nightbreed, a film I first caught at the age of 11 (shhh), I remember it being strikingly weird and more that a little head-scratching. It’s now known that the film we saw, was not the version Barker envisaged for his novel ‘Cabal‘. Morgan Creek, the studio behind Nightbreed were notoriously unhappy with his finished film and subsequently went on to butcher his take, which is perhaps why the film »

Girls on Film: Rediscovering the '80s Gem 'Fire with Fire'

Forgotten Action Cinema: Turbulence 3 – Heavy Metal

4 July 2012 4:18 PM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

I had no idea someone made a sequel to director Robert Butler’s low-rent Ray Liotta thriller “Turbulence”, let alone two. So you can probably imagine my surprise when I happened upon a random copy of “Turbulence 3: Heavy Metal” on VHS at a local antique mall. For a whopping $1, I was treated to what appeared to be three separate movies edited together into one needlessly complicated thriller. The story concerns itself with a Marilyn Manson-style rock star who stages a private show aboard a 747 as its flying across the United States. Before long, the passengers are treated taken hostage by their goth hero, who intends to crash the plane into the most evil location on the entire planet: Eastern Kansas. Now, it’s up to some random FBI boss (Joe Mantegna), one of his startlingly sexy agents (Gabrielle Anwar), and a hippie hacker (Craig Sheffer) to stop this »

Opening Film - The Seasoning House (World Premiere)

Special make-up prosthetics and splatter genius Paul Hyett makes his directorial debut with a harrowing exploration into tense claustrophobia, hard-hitting action and rollercoaster suspense. In a Balkan brothel, where girls kidnapped by soldiers in war-torn zones are prostituted to the military and civilians alike, Angel (Robin Day) is the deaf mute orphan enslaved to care for the inmates. But unbeknownst to her captors, she moves between the walls and crawlspaces of the seasoning house planning her escape. Psychological horror in the nerve-shredding Alfred Hitchcock and Roman Polanski style but with an ultra-modern twist.

Film News: Clive Barker Triple Feature Haunts Portage Theater on July 13, 2012

18 June 2012 9:27 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – Fans of the inventively gruesome filmmaker and visual artist Clive Barker will be delighted by the eleventh installment of Terror in the Aisles. A rare Clive Barker Triple Feature will screen Friday, July 13, at the Portage Theater, 4050 N. Milwaukee Ave, featuring two very special guests, and the restored version of a Barker classic.

The cinematic mayhem kicks off at 7:30pm with the midwest premiere of “Nightbreed: The Cabal Cut,” a 155-minute extended version of the 1990 horror fantasy. Based on Barker’s 1988 novella, “Cabal,” the film revolves around a group of mutant outcasts discovered by a haunted everyman (Craig Sheffer) and his bewildered girlfriend (Anne Bobby). The film is notable for its supporting performance by the acclaimed filmmaker David Cronenberg (“The Fly,” “A History of Violence”) and its atmospheric score by master composer Danny Elfman. The butchered cut of the film released to theaters wasn’t true to Barker’s original vision, »

B-Sides: Sex Is Not the Problem But This Song Certainly Is

15 June 2012 10:34 PM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

This weekend Rock of Ages terrorizes theaters with 1980’s rock musical overload. This seems like as good a time as any to horrify you with a musical number from a Reagan era sci-fi rock musical. Sex is the least of Voyage of the Rock Aliens' problems.

How does one go from directing Clint Eastwood as “Dirty Harry” in The Enforcer and Chuck f’ing Norris in Forced Vengeance to directing Pia Zadora, Jermaine Jackson, Craig Sheffer, and Michael Berryman in something called Voyage of the Rock Aliens?

Pia Zadora began her acting career playing a green-skinned Martian child in the 1964 holiday bad movie classic Santa Claus Conquers the Martians. Who would have ever imagined that would be the pinnacle of her career?

Twenty years later, an all grown up Pia Zadora starred in an even worse out-of-this-world musical comedy titled Voyage of the Rock Aliens directed by James Fargo »

Blu-ray Release for Clive Barker’s Nightbreed: The Cabal Cut?

13 June 2012 11:30 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Fans of Nightbreed and Clive Barker have been excited about The Cabal Cut, an extended version of the movie that has been screening at a couple of recent horror conventions. We have good news from Clive Barker, who let everyone know that Morgan Creek gave them permission to raise funds for a Blu-ray release:

“My friends, Clive here, writing to share some wonderful news. Following the two Sold Out screenings of Nightbreed: The Cabal Cut on Sunday, Morgan Creek has given us permission to show the cut around the world and to raise money to prepare the cut for a release on Blu Ray.

This could not, would not have happened without your voices. We have all been heard. The Morgan Creek team have my thanks and my respect. Very seldom does anyone in the movie business pay attention as they have, understanding perhaps that the message of the »

Screening Details and Trailer for Clive Barker’s Nightbreed: The Cabal Cut

15 May 2012 2:56 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This past weekend, it was announced that the extended cut of Clive Barker’s Nightbreed would be screening in Los Angeles this June. Continue reading for more details on The Cabal Cut, a teaser trailer, and information on the screening:

“Ever since it was first released, Clive Barker’s Nightbreed has been the subject of much debate. For nearly twenty years now, there have been stories of more Nightbreed, missing scenes, and special edition releases. These stories have always been conjecture and hearsay. Until now…

In 2009 Seraphim’s Mark Miller contacted Morgan Creek and found out that there may well be more to the Myth than anyone had thought. Two European encoded VHS tapes were discovered and sent to Phil and Sarah Stokes, who run Clive Barker’s website, Revelations. They viewed the tapes and saw what nobody had seen in almost 2 decades; additional Nightbreed footage. Phil and Sarah transferred the footage to DVD and, »

The “Cabal Cut” Of Nightbreed To Screen In Los Angeles June 10th; Trailer Online

13 May 2012 4:09 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

If you haven't heard of Nightbreed, it's Clive Barker's ambitious adaptation of his novel Cabal. It stars David Cronenberg as serial killing psychiatrist Dekker, and Craig Sheffer as his patient Boon, framed for his murders. Shot down by the cops, Boon is resurrected in the secret mythical city of Midian - "where the monsters go" - and joins its denizens as they defend the gates of the city against the "real monsters". It's a decent, underrated, but admittedly uneven movie, spawned from a far superior novel and Epic (remember them?) comic series. Apparently the film was drastically interfered with by its studio (they cut it down to under 90 minutes) and has always been the subject of controversy, and rabid fan speculation as to "what may have been". Now the full 145 minute "Cabal Cut" will screen for the very first time. Here is the story of The Cabal Cut's »

Clive Barker Plotting Nightbreed For TV

3 April 2012 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Clive Barker's Nightbreed disappeared in a storm of studio interference in 1990, and Hellraiser recently limped to an eighth Dtv sequel in the absence of Dimension's all-but-abandoned remake. But both may now find new life on the small screen, with a sudden flurry of news stories suggesting that Hellraiser and Nightbreed are both now in development as TV series.Let's deal with Nightbreed first. An extremely ambitious adaptation by Barker of his own novel Cabal, the film version was envisioned as a a spectacular cavalcade of mad creatures and monster action. Weirdly, it starred David Cronenberg as serial killing psychiatrist Dekker, and Craig Sheffer as his patient Boon, framed for his murders. Shot down by the cops, Boon is resurrected in the secret mythical city of Midian, where the monsters live, and joins them as they defend the gates of the city against the "real monsters" from the normal world. A »

Is A Nightbreed TV Series On The Way?

31 March 2012 6:00 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Horror master Clive Barker adapted his own 1988 novella “Cabal” into the 1990 film “Nightbreed”. Originally envisioned as a sprawling trilogy, “Nightbreed” flopped both with audiences and critics, no sequels ever materialized, and nothing further happened. But perhaps all that is about to change as Barker is developing a reboot of “Nightbreed” as a potential cable show. “Nightbreed” is about a mythical secret community of monsters who live in place called Midian, hidden and insulated from humans. Their existence is threatened by a violent, twisted serial killer, and a mental patient named Boone (Craig Sheffer) who believes he belongs among the creatures of Midian. I first saw “Nightbreed” at what was likely a wildly inappropriate age, and immediately fell in love. It also made me realize that David Cronenberg (who appears as the creepiest character you’ll ever meet) is one seriously scary dude. To this day it is still my favorite Barker movie, »

'One Tree Hill' Season 9 Episode 11 Review: Danny Boy

22 March 2012 2:07 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

What a moving introduction last night on One Tree Hill. There was so much anxiety, anger, and then warmth. In the words of a fellow One Tree Hill viewer, “I’m about to cry and I don’t even cry over television shows. This is too sad.” “Danny Boy” was undoubtedly the most emotionally draining episode of the season. It reminded me of the season three finale, all of that emotion in the final moments coming like a sudden flood. Haley (Bethany Joy Lenz) seemed to have tears flowing in every scene, making us all wrecks throughout. Bethany Joy Lenz was phenomenal. Danny’s death was inevitable but even knowing what was coming, what a heartbreaking episode this was. The villain turned hero met his with loved ones surrounding him.

“Am I in hell?” – Dan

“Not yet.” – Deb

As disappointing as it was for Lucas not come and visit Dan (Paul Johansson) on his deathbed, »

One Tree Hill Review: I Can See Daniel Waving Goodbye

21 March 2012 10:59 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Dan. Effing. Scott. Whether you loved him, hated him, or loved to hate him, it is nearly impossible to argue that he didn't have one of the most intriguing and divisive character arcs of all-time. 

He tormented his sons, his wife and everyone else in town for that matter. He was hit by a speeding car, poisoned, lost out on a number of heart transplants and attempted to hang himself.  Dan Scott even murdered his own brother.

He also treated his grandchildren - we mostly witnessed this through his joyous moments with Jamie - wonderfully.  When it came down to it, and someone he loved was in extreme danger, he put everything (including his life on the line), saving Nathan Scott for his family.

We got to relive so much of his journey over the course of these nine seasons of One Tree Hill in "Danny Boy," whether through spoken word or visual flashback, »

‘One Tree Hill’ Recap: Dan Scott Says Goodbye

21 March 2012 10:26 PM, PDT | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

Dan finally earns his son's love & gets a surprise visitor from 'Tree Hill' past! This was the most emotional episode of the season. Jamie's (Jackson Brundage) words "He'll be alright, he's Grandpa Dan," echoed throughout the hospital on the March 21 episode of One Tree Hill, as everyone came together after Dan (Paul Johansson) took a a bullet for Nathan (James Lafferty). The doctors informed the newly reunited Scott family that after being shot, and combined with his heart problems, it was likely that Dan wouldn't survive. Throughout the episode, Dan had flashbacks of the many paths he'd chosen in life. Some were good moments, like the 0ne time he and Nathan actually played basketball without keeping score, but others were more tragic events Dan sincerely regrets, like shooting his brother. But just when you thought he'd pull through, Dan flatlined and was visited by none-other-than his brother, Keith (Craig Sheffer). At this point, »

'One Tree Hill's' Paul Johansson on Craig Sheffer, Dan Scott, and saying goodbye to Tree Hill [Spoilers!]

21 March 2012 7:00 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Wipe your tears,"One Tree Hill" fans -- and, if you haven't yet seen tonight's incredibly emotional episode, "Danny Boy," you'll definitely want to click away and come back later. Consider this your official spoiler alert.

In "One Tree Hill's" nine years on the air, Dan has survived a heart attack, a fire, a dog eating his donor heart, multiple car accidents, a psychotic nanny -- the list goes on. We didn't think we'd ever see the end of him -- and Paul Johansson agreed. "I thought Dan was a cockroach," he joked. "When nuclear winter came. Dan would be walking around in the ashes."

Instead, though, we finally said goodbye to Tree Hill's greatest, most dynamic and sympathetic villain in a powerful episode that featured a surprise guest appearance from Keith (Craig Sheffer), the brother Dan murdered in Season 3.

Johansson was thrilled to learn that Sheffer had agreed »

One Tree Hill Star Weighs In on [Spoiler's] Death – and the Emotional Return that Shocked Us All!

Warning: If you’ve yet to watch Wednesday’s heartbreaking episode of One Tree Hill, avert your eyes now. We repeat, do not read on! Everyone else, proceed… with caution.

After nine scandal-filled, scheme-riddled, redemption-seeking seasons, beloved One Tree Hill baddie Dan Scott on Wednesday night bid an emotional — and final — farewell to the shrub-deficient town.

While his death wasn’t entirely unexpected, the rather exceptional hour of the long-running CW series pulled off a feat rarely seen in TV today: the unspoiled return of a fan fave character.
