Clive Barker's "Nightbreed"

Nightbreed is a rare breed indeed, the sort of gleeful, kitchen sink monster movie you just don’t see made nowadays. Directed by Clive Barker and adapted from his own novel “Cabal”, Nightbreed tells the tale of a rock n’ roll rebel (played by a brooding Craig Sheffer) who may or may not be guilty of a string of brutal murders, and who also happens upon a literal underground society of monsters. Did we mention that David Cronenberg plays his therapist in a deliciously perverse, scene-stealing performance? Hijinx and an onslaught of good old-fashioned latex creature make-ups ensue, and the results are unhinged, dizzying and never, ever dull. The film was Barker’s follow-up to his seminal Hellraiser, but it was sorely neglected at the time of its release in 1990. Now you have a chance to rectify that gross injustice by seeing it as it was meant to be seen — in a dark room full of like-minded, questionable weirdos! Come join us in Midian, where the monsters live!
Dir. Clive Barker, 1990, 35mm, 102 min.
