The role of Ohnaka was first intended for singer Marc Almond, and he was contracted to play the part, but his management strongly advised against the role given the nature of the film, as he was seeking to redefine his previously dark image as a more mainstream crooner at the time. The part subsequently went to Simon Bamford, who was already a friend of Clive Barker. See more »

Look we can make it out... but we need fighters
We're not warriors
What about the beserkers?
Madness, they're uncontrollable
Better yet... let them out. We are the tribes of the moon... you said so

Don't ask me why I love this movie so much...Maybe it came at a time in my life I desperately wanted to fit in, maybe it is the amazing monster effects, maybe because I enjoyed the novel "Cabal", but It's probably because I LOVE Clive Barker. I think it's fair to warn you the movie and the novel have no true resolve and like me you'll probably have a WTF moment at the end. At least two sequels were planned but never came about due to the fact the movie flopped for a few reasons. The studio made drastic cuts to the film cutting a good 30 or so minutes out of it and they did a HORRIBLE job promoting it. The adverts made it look like just another cheap slasher showing mainly the "Button face/Mask" Decker character. This is a movie about the monsters! About fantasy! About a place called Midian! It's a story where the monsters are the good guys. There is truly nothing else out there like it! It's not a movie for everybody I suppose but it stands as one of Clive's many great works. Sit back and be prepared to be taken to Midian - where the monsters are.
