Nightbreed Directors cut details announced

EDIT* OOPS DIDN"T SEE THIS HAD ALL BEEN THROWN IN THE SHOUT FACTORY THREAD IN THE GENERAL FORUM.

NOt all the details but quite a bit. Limited edition is up for $79.97 on shouts site


***NIGHTBREED: THE DIRECTOR’S CUT Update!!***

We have big (and extensive) news to report today regarding a film that we announced almost over a year ago in July. In collaboration with Morgan Creek Productions and Clive Barker’s Seraphim, Inc., the long-awaited NIGHTBREED: THE DIRECTOR’S CUT is scheduled for a release of 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."

Details on the two retail sets are as follows:

LIMITED EDITION SET (ONLY 5,000 NUMBERED SETS MADE):
- Disc 1: Unrated Director’s Cut of the film on Blu-ray
- Disc 2: The 1990 R-Rated theatrical version of the film on Blu-ray (through a special licensing agreement through Warner Bros.)
- Disc 3: EXCLUSIVE-TO-THIS-SET Bonus Blu-ray disc packed with extras (details forthcoming)
- Includes Collector’s Book with an essay and rare photos
- Slipcase includes newly-designed artwork by Joel Robinson approved by Clive Barker

**NOTE: Those who order the Limited Edition set directly from www.ScreamfactoryDVD.com will also receive an exclusive 18”x24” poster of the newly designed artwork (available while supplies last)! The Scream Factory site will also receive the first 1,000 numbered copies and ship 2 weeks earlier than Oct 28th.**

Probably should have its own thread anyways.

Cool, we had a bad thunderstorm last night so I had all my electronics offline so I read the final few chapters of Cabal through it and just finished it.

But Holy Fuck 80 bucks for the special edition? They can cram the theatrical cut for all I care if that's the cost driver. And at that price the poster art isn't even a Barker work?

It's going to take some soul searching before I make that purchase.

Yeah I am a little torn, can't really afford $80 but really want the theatrical cut on blu as that is the one i grew up with, the bonus disc of extras would be nice too.

This is awesome, but there is no way in hell I'm paying $80 bucks just for an extra disc. I don't care if they had the complete version of London After Midnight on there, that's just absurd.

well it is two extra discs of content, the theatrical cut on blu and another disc of exclusive extras. The other version just has the directors cut on blu + dvd

You're right, I should have typed $60 bucks for a bonus disc (the regular version is $20ish). Still very ridiculous though.

Fuuuuuuuuuu....

That price needs to come down a bit more before I'd even think about snatching that LE up.

Wow, what an incredibly obnoxious way to release it. To not put at least the Director's cut and theatrical cut on blu in one regular edition package is mind-boggling.
