This movie, based on the Clive Barker story "Cabal", while not particularly well done, is still watchable and has some gory scenes (for the time it was made). It is a good story, which is definitely better to read, but as far as a movie adaptation goes, it is pretty good. Craig Sheffer as Boone does a fairly good job, but watching this movie about 15 years after I last saw it, I don't find much ... read more

After seeing dozens of misprinted shirts of Dr. Decker on sale for 5 bucks at Monster Mania, I realized I hadn't seen this movie and should do something about it. I rather enjoyed it, thought the tale it self was something special. Not only was there some sort on monster story being layed below the cemetery Boone discovers, but there is such awesome planned out foul play by the one person he felt ... read more

nice ideas and clever character formation. Cant help but feel that the book would be better though. 8/10 as something is missing.

“[img id=6230379 width=300full]

Nightbreed was released in 1990 and is the second film directed by British horror author Clive Barker, following his 1987 film Hellraiser. The movie was adapted from Barker's own novel, Cabal, and is about a group of mutants and other non-human creatures who are trying to exist away from mankind, below a cemetery, in a vast underground city known as Midian. The story follows Boone, who begins having nightmares about the "monsters" living beneath the cemetery, and begins to question whether they are dreams or reality. He begins to feel that the creatures are calling him to them. His psychologist, Dr. Decker, has his own ulterior motives. The unhinged performance by David Cronenberg as Dr. Decker, is one of my favorite aspects of the film. Cronenberg,” read more

I Don't Think I Know How To Use A Gun.

“After seeing dozens of misprinted shirts of Dr. Decker on sale for 5 bucks at Monster Mania, I realized I hadn't seen this movie and should do something about it. I rather enjoyed it, thought the tale it self was something special. Not only was there some sort on monster story being layed below the cemetery Boone discovers, but there is such awesome planned out foul play by the one person he felt like he could tell anything; his own therapist. Showing Boone that his dreams have in fact come true, Aaron flees feeling that he must stop the monster responsible for these horrific crimes; when in reality it's his own doctor who is putting his wicked dreams into violent play. Wearing a mask just before his blades slash through skin, Decker brings forth a scary character worth a t-shirt design, a” read more
