Clive Barker’s legendarily misunderstood/butchered/loathed/loved mutant movie, in which deformed freaks attempt to evade a psycho serial killer.
Nightbreed’s botched theatrical release saw 20th Century Fox cut the film something chronically, removing most of the gore and marketing it as a slasher flick.
Years later, the Cabal Cut was assembled by Barker’s friend Russell Cherrington, who used the director’s novel Cabal and a second draft of the screenplay to reassemble the film.
He added in 45 minutes of footage. The film’s unavailable on DVD, but has successfully aired at a number of festivals.
In the words of Seraphim Films’ Mark Miller: “More monsters, more action, more story. And believe it or not, there’s even a musical number.”
