Check out a monstrous bonus feature from the 'Nightbreed: Director's Cut' Blu-ray

Posted on

More than a quarter of a century ago, author and Hellraiser director Clive Barker set out to create what he intended to be “Star Wars for monsters,” a film called Nightbreed in which a group of freakish-looking creatures would be the heroes and mankind itself the villains. But the Nightbreed thathit theaters in 1990 was both a box-office flop and far removed from Barker’s vision following edits mandated by Morgan Creek Twenty-five years later, horror imprint Scream Factory is releasing this week a long-awaited “Director’s Cut” of the film on Blu-raywith the approval of Barker and the support of Morgan Creekthat utilizes long-lost film elements recently discovered in a midwest storage facility.

In addition to the longer cut of the film, the Blu-ray also boasts a number of bonus features, including a documentary called Tribes of the Moon: The Making of Nightbreed. You can see a clip from that film belowand you can read more about the story of Nightbreed in the current issue of Entertainment Weekly.
