Years ago, someone who claimed to have a plethora of inside knowledge regarding the storied production of Clive Barker’s 1990 cult classic “Nightbreed” informed me that the version I owned on VHS was not what the talented filmmaker had in mind. In fact, the movie had been cut significantly before its release, and the loads of excised footage was secretly locked away inside a vault somewhere in the Hollywood hills. Rumors have been swirling that the legendary “director’s cut” is still in existence, though nobody outside of a select few have seen it. Fortunately for those lucky geeks attending HorrorHound Weekend in Indianapolis this March, Barker’s extended version of “Nightbreed” will be publicly screened for the first time in front of a large crowd of adoring fans. Seating is very limited, and if you were lucky enough to snag a Gold Pass, you’re guaranteed a seat. I’m excited, and you should be, too. Does this mean a DVD release is on the horizon. Dear Lord, I hope so.
