Over the years, the Nightbreed lost footage has achieved a status almost as mythical as the hardcore footage excised from 1984’s The Prey. Nobody ever really believed it would see the light of day and many doubted its existence.
But today, Clive Barker’s official site posted a glimmer of hope for those of us still hoping to one day see the “director’s cut” realized on DVD. It’s been confirmed that the missing footage has been found and can be accessed at any time, but the studio doesn’t believe there’s an audience for it (or a Blu-ray upgrade, dammit).
Clive’s site is hoping the horror community will prove the studio wrong. Head on over to Clive Barker Revelations to check out the full story and be sure to email the webmaster, as they’re collecting signatures to finally bring the intended version of Nightbreed to the digital underground.
