Anyone with an interest in watching Clive Barker’s director’s cut of Nightbreed should most likely be familiar enough with the troubled production history and the Cabal cut that was making the festival rounds a couple of years ago. What makes this the definitive version of Barker’s ambitious dark fantasy is how this manages to expand the grand mythology taken from his novel Cabal, while adding clarity to Lori (Anne Bobby) and Boone’s (Craig Sheffer) relationship as the center of the story. Most importantly, the 40 minutes of new material was added in a way that actually helps the pacing and only running 18 minutes longer than the theatrical version keeps this from being a bloated experience.
Added footage of Boone and Lori together before he travels to the exotic home of the monsters, helps give their relationship a sense of purpose and Lori’s nightclub performance adds more depth to her character. »

Once the scenes were reordered, »

Director Anthony Hickox comes from a strong cinematic lineage. His father, Douglas Hickox was also a director (Zulu Dawn, Theatre of Blood) whilst his mother is critically lauded editor Anne V. Coates (Lawrence of Arabia). A career in the film industry seemed destined, even if his start would require a lot of persistence and a lot of luck.
His debut film Waxwork almost didn’t see the light of day. Hickox met the producer, Staffan Ahrenherg when he crashed his car into the back of Ahrenberg’s.
