This is probably the greatest horror film news of the year. The Scream Factory have just announced that Clive Barkers Nightbreed: The Cabal Cut is to finally see a home DVD release. This version will see the running time of the film increased from 102 minutes to almost a full 150 minutes.
I don't know about you but this news has made me a very happy man indeed. Those of you too young to remember, Nightbreed has always been a fan favourite. The story involves the plight of Aaron Boone (Craig Sheffer), a young man tormented by visions of monstrous, graveyard-dwelling creatures. Seeking the aid of his clinically cold therapist Dr. Decker (played by Canadian horror auteur David Cronenberg) in deciphering his nightmares, Boone becomes convinced that his frequent blackouts are linked to a recent spate of mutilation murders in the area. His frantic search for the truth leads him to the subterranean city of Midian, the dwelling place of a mythical race of undead nocturnal monsters known as the "Nightbreed." But it is only after he is cornered and shot dead by police that Boone's real journey begins -- he finds himself resurrected as one of the Breed.

It's great news about The Cabal Cut being released on DVD in 2014. This goes to show the power of all those people who signed the petition organised by Occupy Midian. I'm sure all those who supported the project by attending screenings of early cuts, will enjoy the fruition of their support when they see the DVD. Lots of people made this happen, but special thanks to Russell Cherrington and Mark Miller for driving this forward. Most importantly, congratulations to Clive Barker. He must be very, very pleased.
