Clive Barker's Nightbreed The Director's Cut Blu-ray

Posted July 1, 2014 03:18 PM by Webmaster

Shout FactoryScream Factory, the horror-thriller offshoot of independent film distributor Shout Factory, has officially announced that Clive Barker's long-awaited Nightbreed: The Director's Cut will be released on October 28th and will be available in two retail versions: A 5,000 Unit Limited-Edition 3-Disc Blu-ray set and a Special Edition DVD & Blu-ray Combo.

In 1990, the film was released theatrically nationwide. However, the movie studio edited the film extensively and several scenes were excised or rearranged much to Director Clive Barker's disappointment. Since then, a fan-driven movement was created (www.OccupyMidian.com) to see the full version of the film restored and re-released. Now, after 25 years, fans and horror enthusiasts can finally experience NIGHTBREED like never before! Scream Factory, in conjunction with Warner Bros., was able to find the long-thought-missing original film elements and combed through over 600 boxes to locate not only the lost scenes but a treasure trove of never-before-seen footage as well. With nearly an hour of lost footage meticulously restored, the result is not only a more faithful adaptation of Clive Barker's book Cabal, but also what he originally intended NIGHTBREED to be.

Official statement from Clive Barker: "This is film history and beyond my wildest dreams of realization. When Scream Factory told me that they found the NIGHTBREED film footage I was gob-smacked! This is the ultimate validation of choices made by myself and Mark Miller [of Seraphim Films] all the way back in 2008. As we embarked down the road of attempting to track down the lost footage, we looked at each other and said, 'Maybe one day they'll find it.' It's my pleasure to announce that the day has come. Speaking personally, I didn't allow myself to believe that it would. Even if we did find some footage (which we did in 2009 in the form of heavily degraded VHS tapes) and even if we did find a company willing to release the film (which we did in 2013 with Scream Factory, God bless them) the prospect of finding the actual lost film materials was remoter than I'd wanted to admit out loud. If the footage could not be found by those who had worked closest on it the same year it had been released, then what were the odds we'd be able to find anything 20 years on? But Scream Factory, in their commendable determination, kept up the search and thanks to them total reconstruction has been made a possibility. There's never been a reconstruction that's had as little chance of succeeding and yet has succeeded on as many fronts as this film has. It's unprecedented. To now have a movie that we can put together in the way that I fully intended it to be seen when I first set out to make this film in 1989 is extraordinary. The project has moved inexorably to this conclusion. Fate and the hard work of individuals such as Mark Miller, Russell Cherrington, Phil and Sarah Stokes, Occupy Midian, Morgan Creek, and ultimately, Scream Factory have made this a possibility and I could not be happier."

Yeah...definitely gonna stick with the SE. $80? No way.

Price tag is a bit steep for the limited edition. But, given what I'm sure was a very extensive and expensive restoration process and the cost of putting together the special features (to say nothing of the cost of licensing the original cut from Warner Bros.), $80.00 seems about right. Day 1, no hesitation.

Limited Edition. Restoration, and the search for material probably cost quite a bit. Interesting bit of horror-film-history. Already pre-ordered.

Should be around $55 once Amazon has it up, which hopefully will be soon.

That said, $55 for three discs is still kind of a lot when at one point the entire TWIN PEAKS forthcoming set was around $90 at its lowest on Amazon.

I understand the restoration was pretty expensive, but $80 multiplied by 5000 is $400,000. They have to make some cash, but DAMN -- this set better be friggin' monumental for that price all told.

I wonder if the theatrical edition licensing is similar to Twilight Time's licensing, thus the limited edition and higher cost. Although $80 is even more than two Twilight Time releases. Still, I'm glad both versions are being offered and I want the extras disc, so I went with the limited edition.

I can't believe the amount of people complaining about the cost. I mean sure $80 is alot for ANY movie, however I would imagine this has to be the exception! I really hope fans understand the amount of work that went into obtaining the original film elements for the lost footage. Also, WB only agreed to licensing the Theatrical cut under the specific circumstances (limited release), so that is one of the reasons for the higher cost. For those thinking it will be less on Amazon, not going to happen for the all of the reasons I just stated. If Scream Factory could offer it for less, I'm sure they would since they know fans may be put off by the asking price.

Sounds like the main reason for such a steep price on the limited edition is WBs licensing fee on the theatrical cut. So, unless the theatrical is the preferred cut, I'll pass. That price makes Twilight Time seem reasonable, assuming the limited edition will be direct sales only - not distributed elsewhere at typical retail discounting of 30-40 % off. Though it's still a bit steep even there. If this movie doesn't have the hardcore fanbase to merit 5000 copies at that price, maybe we'll see it drop in about a year. I'm definitely nowhere near that devout a fan.

I've waited too long for this...saw the theatrical cut on opening day then met Clive Barker who signed Hellraiser posters, laserdiscs and a book for me... Limited Edition purchased!!!

Plus I can't wait for this...artwork should be awesome...

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

A huge favorite of mine, and a movie I always thought deserved a sequel (back then, not now ... disappointed with most modern sequels/reboots). I have the theatrical cut on the original DVD, so like some here I'm leaning towards the SE vs. the LE, unless the difference in special features is exceptional.

Either way, if Clive Barker is happy with this Director's Cut, I think all us fans are going to be happy!

So if I am right the Directors Cut is the same as what has so much been talked about and sometimes shown in a theater last year is THE CABAL CUT or is it different?

I thought I read some early reviews THE CABEL CUT could use some editing...maybe Clive Barker participated in a new Director's Cut which Shout is releasing... his cut scenes could be part of the special features...

Horror fans, more horror films deserve the quality treatment Nightbreed had. Please sign our petition and help us get Wes Craven's Deadly Friend Director's cut released. Warner Bros probably won't be interested in investing so much in a movie like this, so let's convince them sub license the movie to a company who would be willing to do all the work

For those outside the U.S.A. or Canada who cannot pre-order through Shout I have e.mailed them direct. They confirm that the Limited Edition with both versions of the movie on Blu-ray WILL be available through Amazon USA in a couple of weeks. Amazon USA WILL ship to the U.K. and elsewhere but remember it will be Region A only and you will need a Region A or multi-region capable Blu-ray player to be able to watch either version. Shout cannot give an exact date of when Amazon USA will start pre-orders nor how many of the 5,000 Limited Edition will be available through them. If you only want the Director's Cut and don't care about the R-Rated Theatrical Version there will be lots of copies available in October cause that's Unlimited - Director's Cut Blu-ray Region A plus DVD Region 1.

@MoulinBlue

Warner Brothers is a multi-billion dollar company, and I'm quite sure, they can afford to sell the limited edition of Nightbreed much cheaper than $80.00, regardless how much they had to pay for the licensing fee.

There is no guarantee that Amazon will ship this item outside of the US. Amazon are just as susceptible to international shipping restrictions... to the point where I barely buy from them anymore.

For those who are bemoaning the price... I would gladly pay $80 if I could actually have it shipped to me. Perhaps you can buy it, watch it, then sell it to me!

The price is too much I'll will wait when it comes to the European shores and should be picked up by a movielabel there with maybe the same licensing agreement deal. That will be wonderfull. It is beautiful set, but I will wait

$80 bucks is steep for essentially one movie (I know the Director's will probably be vastly different, but nonetheless it is one title). Can this be the most expensive single title blu ray released ever thus far? I am still leaning towards shelling out the $80 for it. I just want to see what Amazon is going to sell it for.
