Who Wants A (Clive Barker's) Nightbreed Director's Cut
I still cringe at the tagline given on the original movie poster (seen to the right): "Lori thought she knew everything about her boyfriend...Lori was wrong!" That's just pure cheese. The poster seen to the left here was used for the video release.
What the story gave us was a world of "monsters." What set this story apart from others was the real "monsters" in the story were the humans. There was a ton of different characters created and given back stories that only appeared for a few seconds in the movie. Due to the poor marketing and the release date (2 days after Valentine's Day in 1990), the movie didn't do as well as it should have.
Ever since the movie was released, there had been talks of extra footage. Some reports list it at twenty-five minutes worth! According to CHUD and Film School Rejects, the footage has been found. Great news, right? Not necessarily. It seems the studio doesn't feel there is an audience big enough to release the footage or even upgrade it to Blu-ray.
What can be done? You can go to the Revelations website and add your name to the petition or e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org and give them your name, country of origin and why the movie should be released. If you've never seen the movie or don't care about the genre, do it for me.
I was so pissed when I saw that movie poster. I was actually working in a movie theater when this came out. As soon as the movie finished its run, I put the poster in my bedroom and even got a copy of the trailer which I cut some pieces and taped them to my bedroom window. During the day, you could see the scenes. Eventually the sun caused them to crumble. I think the poster might still be at my parents house in the basement.
Yeah, it's cheesy... But for me, cheesy in a good way.Please tell me the movie theater was your first job... [more]
this is one of those movies that inspired me to write.
it was a well-thought off but somewhat poorly executed but nevertheless worthy to watch.
i hope that it can be remade again...according to Clive Barker's real take on the story. I don't mind getting a copy of this one.
