Horror Flick of the Week: Nightbreed (1990)

As Halloween approaches, I’m reminded of a film I watched all the time as a kid. Despite some massive butchering and very confusing cuts as a result, I always had plenty of fun watching all of the weird underground mutant people acting crazy as shit (as they tend to in any Clive Barker story.)

Imagine Hellraiser if the protagonist WANTED to become a Cenobyte, and if there wasn’t a puzzle box but instead a weird cult dynamic. That’s pretty much Nightbreed in the form that I’ve seen. Now on the 28th (6 days from now as I’m posting this little feature) Scream Factory is releasing a special Blu-ray/DVD with the cut we’re all familiar with AND a director’s cut. Apparently that one is incredible, and I personally can not wait to see it. But you’ve got to admire a movie that somehow manages to be entertaining, even if it loses a massive amount of relevant plot points after a massacre in the cutting room.
