I thought I'd get some interest on Warseer for this: there is an online petition and campaign to get a proper release for the directors' cut of Clive Barkers' Nightbreed.
For those who don't know, Nightbreed was a big-budget adaptation of Barkers' novella Cabal, made in 1989 - it was an ambitious horror-fantasy about a community of antiheroic monsters and their dashing messiah-figure, set to be the "Star Wars of horror" films and the first of an intended trilogy. It had approx. 200 elaborately made-up monstrous characters and unprecedented scope for an R-rated horror movie, had director David Cronenberg as one of the main (human) villains and a cameo by Suzi Quatro, and was replete with Barkers' subversive subtext about sexuality and Biblical mythology... Sounds amazing, right?
But thanks to nervous and conservative studio execs at Morgan Creek it was heavily cut, inaccurately marketed and poor sold, so fizzled out and led nowhere.
After some time and effort by Barkers' associates, an extended directors cut has been pieced together, the 'Cabal Cut', with more than an hour of additional footage previously feared lost at Morgan Creek, and has been especially screened a few times since last year, and now, depending on demand, a DVD and possibly Blu-Ray release is an actual possibility...
There is an online petition with this in mind, and an 'Occupy Midian' Facebook page and site, links below. So, if you want to see this happen, the first thing you should do it let them know by signing up.
