Nightbreed-SF-RE-boxAnyone with an interest in watching Clive Barker’s director’s cut of Nightbreed should most likely be familiar enough with the troubled production history and the Cabal cut that was making the festival rounds a couple of years ago. What makes this the definitive version of Barker’s ambitious dark fantasy is how this manages to expand the grand mythology taken from his novel Cabal, while adding clarity to Lori (Anne Bobby) and Boone’s (Craig Sheffer) relationship as the center of the story. Most importantly, the 40 minutes of new material was added in a way that actually helps the pacing and only running 18 minutes longer than the theatrical version keeps this from being a bloated experience.

Added footage of Boone and Lori together before he travels to the exotic home of the monsters, helps give their relationship a sense of purpose and Lori’s nightclub performance adds more depth to her character. The affection that they have for one another is what connects Boone and to the relationships he establishes with the monsters at the heart of the movie. It also parallels the odd obsession that Boone’s psychiatrist has with his patient and his visions that he shares about the residents of Midian.

I’ve always had mixed feelings about the character of Dr. Decker (David Cronenberg), as the reveal of the murder mystery subplot is far too obvious and, as the conflict of the story, he serves the same purpose as the redneck lynch mob who brutally attack the peacekeepers of Midian. Cronenberg’s emotionless performance does lend his character a chilling aura, but his mere existence doesn’t add much to the movie other than being another symbol to represent the evil of human nature. Without his story arc, it would have been more difficult for the studio to manipulate Barker’s movie away from his intended vision. When Police Captain Eigerman (Charles Haid) and his army of hate mongers enter Midian to wage genocide, many more creatures can be found this time around and it’s this scene that gives Nightbreed much of the scope that the theatrical version was sorely lacking. Even the priest character, Ashberry (Malcolm Smith), ideally serves more purpose as a future antagonist against the new revolution of Cabal.

Bob Keen and Star Wars concept artist Ralph McQuarrie’s visual contributions gave Nightbreed a grand scale on a modest budget and Danny Elfman’s unique score is one of his most inspired works to date. There are some issues that this movie has that editing doesn’t have the power to fix. There’s some bad acting, cheesy one liners and problematic creative choices that will always remain, but in an odd way these flaws lend Nightbreed some of it’s personality and charm. This director’s cut is the best that Barker’s movie is ever going to get and for those that remained loyal to the original, despite it’s flaws, will feel greatly rewarded with how this definitive version turned out. What really comes across is Clive Barker’s love for monsters and folklore; he sees them in a way similar to Guillermo Del Toro as creatures to be enthralled with as opposed to merely being feared.

This astounding restoration makes viewing Nightbreed a brand new experience and is presented in a way that compliments Clive Barker’s intentions of creating a fully realized grand epic. The extras that Scream Factory has included are extensive and insightful, offering a great perspective into the creative process and the overall reconstruction of making this version possible. A 72-minute feature titled “Tribes of the Moon” interviews most of the cast of Nightbreed as they discuss their experiences in detail regarding their collaboration with Barker, and some of the actors like Doug Bradley share experiences that date all the way back to their early days in theater. Craig Sheffer still maintains the charismatic personality that stirs wonder why he never found that role to catapult him among his generation. “Making Monsters” is a 42 minute look at the work of makeup FX supervisor Bob Keen and his young Image Animation team and thoroughly examines their individual achievements. In the 20-minute “Fire! Fights! Stunts!”, 2nd-unit director Andy Armstrong gives a revealing account of the stuntwork and the behind-the-scenes madness that accompanied their accomplishments.

Once again, Scream Factory has spared no expense in delivering a package well worth your investment and the Nightbreed Director’s Cut is a welcome addition to their growing genre library. This revised work shows the heights of which Clive Barker’s imagination could reach in cinema and, with better cooperation from the studios, he might have excelled at a level that would have made him a household director still aspiring to stretch his abilities in movies today. This release will certainly please any fans of this movie and could quite possibly win over some new ones as well.

Movie Score: 4/5

Natalie Brown plays Kelly Goodweather on The Strain, a character that is much more than just the ex-wife of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather. Natalie is the latest to take part in our Q&A series and tells us all about her characters journey throughout the first season. *Spoiler Warning*

What initially drew you to the role of Kelly Goodweather? Did you know from the start that you’d become a vampire?

“What drew me to the role was the opportunity to work with Guillermo del Toro. Before my callback, I researched Kelly’s character in “The Strain” trilogy, and discovered what was in store for my character, which only made it more enticing.”

Once you got the role, did you read the novels and comic book series to get a good idea of where the story was heading? Or did you want to keep it a surprise?

“I read the first book after auditioning. Regardless of whether I got the part or not, it was so well-written, I couldn’t put it down! Shortly after landing the role, I completed the second and third. I wanted to know as much about Kelly’s back story as I could, and much of it is detailed through flashbacks in the books.”

Can you tell us about your transformation into a vampire? How did you prepare for that part of the role? What was the most challenging aspect when filming?

“It was a blast! To prepare, I took a variety of movement and voice classes, but it all got real when I was finally sent to “Vamp Camp.” It’s where all would-be vamps worked with a choreographer on the movements and mannerisms of the vampires.

One of the biggest challenges was navigating stairs- vampires have a sixth sense and don’t need to necessarily look where they’re going, so not looking down or using a railing, required a lot of trust in my vampire self!”

When it came to makeup effects, what was the process for turning you into a vampire?

“It begins with 30 minutes of glueing my hair down, so it fits smoothly under a bald cap, only to then put on a wig of sparse, stringy patches of thinning hair. After that, prosthetics are applied to the face. Then begins two hours of painting and airbrushing. The final touches are red contact lenses and not-so-pearly-white teeth. In all, 3 and a half hours of pure artistry.”

In the downtime between seasons, do you have any other horror-related projects coming up?

“I’ve been shooting the second season of the werewolf series, “Bitten,” on Space Channel and SyFy. I play “Diane McAdams,” Laura Vandervoort’s character “Elena’s” best friend.”

Where can our readers follow you online?

Late-PhasesIt has been announced that Late Phases will receive a limited theatrical release on November 21st and we a brand new trailer for Adriån Garcîa Bogliano’s new werewolf movie:

“Crescent Bay is not the ideal place to spend one’s golden years, especially since the once-idyllic retirement community has been beset by a series of deadly animal attacks from the ominous forest surrounding it. When grizzled war veteran Ambrose McKinley (Nick Damici) is forced into moving there by his yuppie son Will (Ethan Embry), the residents immediately take offense to Ambrose’s abrasive personality. But that take-no-prisoners attitude may be just what Ambrose needs to survive as it becomes clear that the attacks are being caused by creatures that are neither animal nor man, and that the tight-knit community of Crescent Bay is hiding something truly sinister in its midst…

Following the release of his HERE COMES THE DEVIL, as well as his scene-stealing segment “B IS FOR BIGFOOT” in the horror anthology THE ABCS OF DEATH, Adriån Garcîa Bogliano cements his status as one of the top horror filmmakers coming out of Spain with LATE PHASES. In a bookend of sorts to his performance in the cult hit STAKE LAND, Nick Damici commands the screen here, coming on the heels of last year’s Sundance vigilante thriller COLD IN JULY and the critically acclaimed cannibal drama, WE ARE WHAT WE ARE.”

Directed by Adrian Garcia Bogliano and written by Eric Stolze, Late Phases stars Nick Damici, Ethan Embry, Lance Guest, Erin Cummings, Rutanya Alda, Tina Louise, Caitlin O’Heaney, Karen Lynn Gorney, Dana Ashbrook, and Tom Noonan.

Tales-Retro

One of my very favorite parts of this job is being able to pay tribute to movies that I grew up loving, the ones that taught me something about the genre and had a huge impact on me as a horror or cinema fan in general. One such movie is Ernest R. Dickerson’s Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight  andm with its 20th anniversary approaching, I thought the horror comedy would make for a perfect selection for my next DEADLY – Horror & Sci-Fi Magazine retrospective in the upcoming November issue.

During my research on Demon Knight over the last several months, I came across some really cool production stills and the official set of lobby cards that were released in 1995. Because they’re not something easily found online, I thought it would be fun to share with our readers as I geeked out over these and think other fans of Dickerson’s hugely underrated film might have some fun checking these out as well.

Look for my in-depth retrospective on Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight in the November issue of DEADLY – Horror & Sci-Fi Magazine, featuring interviews with Ernest Dickerson, co-stars William Sadler, Charles Fleischer, Brenda Bakke, producer Gil Adler and special effects creator Todd Masters.

VHSViral-boxEarlier this week we saw the debut of a chart calculating the carnage of the Wrong Turn franchise, and now an infographic analyzing the kills of the found footage V/H/S horror film series has been unveiled, coinciding with the release of V/H/S: Viral to VOD platforms. In addition to the bloodbath breakdown, we also have a look at a new red band clip from the franchise’s third installment.

“A police chase after a deranged ice cream truck has captivated the attention of the greater Los Angeles area. Dozens of fame-obsessed teens flock to the streets with their video cameras and camera phones, hell-bent on capturing the next viral video. But there is something far more sinister occurring in the streets of L.A. than a simple police chase. A resounding effect is created onto all those obsessed with capturing salacious footage for no other purpose than to amuse or titillate. Soon the discovery becomes that they themselves are the stars of the next video, one where they face their own death.

V/H/S: Viral features segments from directors Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes, Extraterrestrial), Marcel Sarmiento (ABCs of Death segment “D is for Dogfight”), Gregg Bishop (The Birds of Anger), Justin Benson (Wrecked) and Todd Lincoln (The Apparition). Gary Binkow and Brad Miska produced for Collective Digital Studio and Bloody Disgusting, marking the third collaboration with Magnet on the V/H/S films.”

V/H/S: Viral is now available on VOD & digital platforms and will have a limited theatrical release beginning November 21st. The film stars Patrick Lawrie, Emmy Argo, Heather Hayes, Jessica Luza, John Curran, Justin Welborn, Mary Ralston, Michael Aaron Milligan, Gustavo Salmerón, Marian Álvarez, Xavi Daura, Esteban Navarro, Nick Blanco, Chase Newton, Shane Bradey, and Jayden Robison.
