Nightbreed: The Director's Cut (1990) "Hellraiser" creator Clive Barker wrote and directed this vivid leap into horror that asks the question: In the battle of man vs. monster, who's really the monster? The answer supplies flesh-crawling suspense, sudden fear, a colorful Danny Elfman score and a creepy array of shape-shifting beings. The original "Nightbreed," written and directed by Barker from his 1988 novel "Cabal," was released in 1990 by Morgan Creek Productions and 20th Century Fox and photo for Nightbreed: The Director's Cut starred Craig Sheffer, Anne Bobby and David Cronenberg and centered on a tribe of monsters and outcasts known as the Nightbreed that hide from humanity. The film featured director Cronenberg in a tour-de-force performance as the evil psychotherapist Dr. Phillip K. Decker and Sheffer as Aaron Boone, a young man whom Decker sets up as a serial killer and who retreats to the world of the Nightbreeds (underneath a cemetery) to live among monsters. Elfman, who had just scored Tim Burton's "Batman" and was about to score Warren Beatty's "Dick Tracy," created a beautifully eerie score using children's voices, ethnic drums and instruments, and an orchestra. However, the studio edited the film extensively and several scenes were excised or rearranged -- much to Barker's disappointment. This original "Director's Cut" has been considered a "lost" holy grail to horror fanatics for years ... until now. Through the help of Barker, Seraphim Films and Morgan Creek Productions, Scream! Factory is finally bringing this uncut version to light. Lost footage from original film elements has been found and has been edited together to become the film as it was originally intended to be.
