    I'm a big fan of Nightbreed, I enjoyed the Movie and the Book - Cabal - I also enjoyed the Comic Book Series.

    I was pleased when I found this bit of News out -

    If you haven't heard of Nightbreed, it's Clive Barker's ambitious adaptation of his novel Cabal. It stars David Cronenberg as serial killing psychiatrist Dekker, and Craig Sheffer as his patient Boon, framed for his murders. Shot down by the cops, Boon is resurrected in the secret mythical city of Midian - "where the monsters go" - and joins its denizens as they defend the gates of the city against the "real monsters". It's a decent, underrated, but admittedly uneven movie, spawned from a far superior novel and Epic (remember them?)mcomic series. Apparently the film was drastically interfered with by its studio (they cut it down to under 90 minutes) and has always been the subject of controversy, and rabid fan speculation as to "what may have been". Now the full 145 minute "Cabal Cut" will screen for the very first time.

    More Info -

    “In 2009 Seraphim’s Mark Miller contacted Morgan Creek and found out that there may well be more to the Myth than anyone had thought. Two European encoded VHS tapes were discovered and sent to Phil and Sarah Stokes, who run Clive Barker’s website, Revelations. They viewed the tapes and saw what nobody had seen in almost 2 decades; additional Nightbreed footage. Phil and Sarah transferred the footage to DVD and, with Clive’s approval, announced to the world that missing footage for Clive’s film had been found. Inspired to see Clive’s original vision come to light, filmmaker Russell Cherrington, longtime friend of Clive Barker and Seraphim, took the DVD back to England and, working with editor Jimmi Johnson and Clive Barker’s original Script, created the new cut ofNightbreed composited from two the VHS sources and the original Warner Brothers DVD. The original cinema release of Nightbreed was fused with the workprint to create The Cabal Cut.”

    Agree mate. I just wish we could get it on a Region 2 DVD over here - Maybe after this extended version it might get released on Blu Ray !!!

    For now I'll have to make do with my VHS copy :lol 

    Anybody ever read the Nightbreed Comics or Cabal?

    The Cabal Cut was shown at this year's "Mad Monster Party" in North Carolina.

    Occupy Midian

    The "Mad Monster Party" projection of the Cabal Cut led to a renewal of interest among fans, especially on the Internet. A new petition was created and social networks were used to raise awareness for the extended cut and to encourage producers to release it. This would be colloquially known as "Occupy Midian"

    My buddy Kevin and I were WAY into this movie when it came out. He even had all the comics, and some type of "guidebook" that had bios of every character.

    Man....I can barely remember a darn thing about it now.
