Trivia Though promised a cleaned-up version of the extended VHS work-print dubbed "The Cabal Cut" in July 2014, fans were delighted when Scream Factory announced that the original film was found, restored at 4K and re-cut under Clive Barker's supervision, ending a 24-year-long plea for the "Directors Cut" to be released, in two packages in Oct. 2014.
