Full Details on Scream Factory’s Nightbreed Director’s Cut Emerge from Midian

Full Details on Scream Factory's Nightbreed Director's Cut Emerge from MidianWell, Nightbreed fans, the moment you’ve been waiting for has finally arrived. A couple months after the exciting original announcement, Scream Factory has just revealed full details on the two different versions of its Director’s Cut Blu-ray release of the film…

…and you’re going to be blown away by all the goodies included on the discs.

But first, a few words from the offices of the film’s writer/director, Clive Barker!

The ‘Nightbreed Director’s Cut’ is an entirely different film than the one which was released in theaters,” writes Barker’s team about the release. “It’s 20 minutes longer than the theatrical cut, but it contains over 40 minutes of new and altered footage. Clive oversaw the reconstruction and edit himself, personally ensuring that, at long last, he was able to tell the story he always wanted to tell but, until now, had never been given the chance. Once the scenes were reordered, and the original film footage restored, the entire film received a brand new sound mix and color pass. It is, in every way, a different movie. It contains more story, more monsters, and there’s even a musical number. Ultimately, what we’ve delivered is a love story 25 years in the making.

Those who order the Limited Edition set directly from ScreamfactoryDVD.com will also receive an exclusive 18”x24” poster of the newly designed artwork (available while supplies last)! The Scream Factory site will also receive the first 1,000 numbered copies.

Without further delay, read on to have your mind blown!

    Synopsis
    Boone (Craig Sheffer) may be a troubled young man, but his troubles are just beginning. Set up as the fall guy in a string of slasher murders, he decides he’ll hide by crossing the threshold that separates “us” from “them” and sneak into the forbidden subterranean realm of Midian. Boone will live among the monsters. Hellraiser creator Clive Barker writes (adapting his novel Cabal) and directs this vivid leap into horror that asks: In the battle of man vs. monster, who’s really the monster? The answer supplies flesh-crawling suspense, sudden fear, a colorful Danny Elfman score, and a creepy array of shape-shifting beings. They are the Nightbreed, denizens of a world beyond death, beyond the imagination, perhaps beyond anything you’ve seen.
