It’s called THE CABAL CUT, a reference to the original novel it’s based on. It is two hours and forty five minutes, 57 minutes longer than the theatrical version known as NIGHTBREED, and after years of attempts and convention screenings, it sounds like we may finally get to see it on Blu-ray sometime in the near(ish) future.
Today on his Twitter feed, Clive Barker reported that Morgan Creek has given permission “to show the cut around the world and to raise money to prepare the cut for a release on Blu-ray.” He continued “This could not, would not, have happened without your voices. We have all been heard. The Morgan Creek team have my thanks and my respect. Very seldom does anyone in the movie business pay attention as they have, understanding perhaps that the message of the movie as I shot it is one that dramatizes a different ending to the age-old story of how a war between Humankind and something Other draws to a close. The real NIGHTBREED will be available for everyone to see. I hope its message of redemption and forgiveness move you.”
Best news of the week? It’s only Tuesday, but this NIGHTBREED fan is ready to unleash his inner mutant and rip the fuck outta something in joy. Badass… simply badass.
