In this episode we tackle the theatrical release of Clive Barker‘s Nightbreed (1990). It’s a fantasy tale about monsters persecuted for being themselves and their search for a prophetized protector. Clive Barker is a master of creating worlds. Here he works with David Cronenberg (yes, he’s acting), Craig Sheffer, Anne Bobby and Danny Elfman.
We bet you missed this one. There is a bit of a slasher story to this tale which caused much confusion for the marketing, audience, and director. In fact, there are multiple versions of this movie that either highlight more director or studio involvement. Don’t skip Nightbreed because you’re afraid of Pinhead. These monsters are sorta loveable. Don’t skip it because it has two daddies. The story is still worth watching. You need to find that film.
