Uncut Nightbreed Has Been Seen


About a week ago thegoldensimatar told all you guys that some missing footage for Clive Barker's Nightbreed had been found. Well just yesterday the fine folks at Clive Barkers official website have seen said footage! Yes they finally got their hands on it and can confirm positively that the footage exists. Here is what they had to say:

"We just finished watching a 145 minute version of the film's mid-1989 workprint! That's 44 minutes longer than the theatrical release!! And it's even more significant than that since there are none of the later re-shoots of Decker's murders, so the actual deleted footage is far more than 44 minutes!

"Yes, there's (lots) more violence as the Sons of the Free invade Midian, yes there's some deleted stop motion footage, yes, Narcisse gets decapitated, yes Lori stabs herself on a hilltop and Boone bites her... Yes, yes, yes!

"Now, this is just a VHS copy so it's not of releasable quality, so... thank you for your continuing messages of support - let's keep working to get a proper DVD release for an extended Nightbreed... "

The problem with this is that apparently it is a VHS copy.. So is there any actual film elements? Apparently that is unknown. But they are having some real problems getting this film released. If you want to see this film head over to the site and speak up.
