When the receptionist at the motel drops her pastry as she hangs up she hastily puts her cigarette out in the ash tray before kneeling down to up the mess and it falls onto desk and is still burning however moment later when we see the ash tray again as she reaches her hand up to scrape the wads of destroyed pastry on the counter top her cigarette is in the ashtray and no longer burning.

Are you going to kill him or not? Only I want his balls, and his eyes... unless you want them.
Remember me doctor? I was dying when you had your way with me. You made me give up my secrets when I was feeling particularly vunerable...

After 2 differing work-prints of "Nightbreed" were discovered by Mark Miller from Seraphim film (Clive Barker's production company), he contacted Morgan Creek in the hope he could source the original negatives to restore the film to its original cut. After a few meetings with them, it became apparent they were not convinced of the commercial viability of 'Nightbreed', and the hope was lost - but not for long. Russell Cherrington, friend to Clive Barker, took it upon himself to restore the presumed lost extended cut, and created a composite cut combining these work-prints and the theatrical version from DVD, closely following the book 'Cabal' and the second draft of the screenplay. The outcome of this was 'The Cabal Cut' which contained over 45 minutes of extra footage, and restored the original ending. Morgan Creek have since given permission for screenings to be held worldwide, with a view for a future release on Bluray/DVD. Now in its 5th edit, The Cabal Cut runs 144 minutes. See more »
Boone is a man plagued by secrets and nightmares. His situation is greatly worsened when his therapist reveals his darkest deeds. With his girlfriend in tow and the therapist hot on his heels will Boone be able to find this town of monsters in his dreams and what will happen when he finds it and they find him. I've always enjoyed this film since its' release. It is a good solid monster flick with some gore and a little mythology to boot. The creature effects are even to this day some of the darkest and twisted ever seen. The directing and look of the film are solid. Translating Clive Barker's imagination is probably very hard even by Barker himself. The acting of the leads is very good and Cronenberg (a director in his own right) is sedate and creepy. If Hopkins wasn't available to play Hannibal the cannibal I would have chose him. The main detractor is the way the studio hacked up the original cut. And poor marketing didn't help either. Please release a director's cut someone. 7/10
