There’s no doubt about it… one film that absolutely slays most horror fans is Clive Barker’s Nightbreed. While we all wait patiently for the director’s cut to surface somewhere (hell, anywhere), it turns out the man himself is in talks to bring the horrors of Midian to the small screen.
During a recent interview on his website about his recent health scare and other various tasty bits, Clive dropped the following on fans:
“We are also actively in conversation about doing a Nightbreed television series which will be for cable, so it will have a chance to be as sexy or as graphic in terms of the violence as we need it to be. For example, do you have Spartacus over there? Oh my God, it redefines gruesome… I also applaud them for finally realising it’s not a bad thing to see a manhood once in a while – it’s not as if half the world doesn’t see it daily…”
Barker continues, “The sensitivity of our culture has sort of caught up with Nightbreed. I don’t wish to be immodest, but the general sense is that the movie failed because people didn’t want to associate with the monster and I think our culture has changed – I think our culture is now ready to embrace the ambiguity. You’ve only got to look at Twilight where obviously the monsters are the good guys – I’m not a huge fan but I’m enough of a fan to watch and see monsters being celebrated.”
Bring it on, baby! Thanks to DC reader Jinx for the heads-up!
