Cabal Cut Of Nightbreed To Be Released

San Diego Comic-Con 2013 saw the Tribes of the Moon rejoice as the Scream Factory arm of Shout! Factory announced that a deal has been struck to restore and release the Cabal cut of cult classic Nightbreed, slated for 2014.


Clive Barker’s own adaptation of his novel Cabal is a fine example of a movie butchered by studio interference. Pretty much dismissed as a mess on its release in 1990, Barker has spoken out numerous times about the swingeing cuts made to the original print. Coming in at barely over an hour and a half, it is estimated that only around a third of the monster designs made for the film actually made it into the theatrical release.

The film has gained a cult following since then, largely due to said outstanding monster and general production design, excellent music and a brilliant performance from none other than David Cronenberg as a serial killing psychiatrist who wears perhaps the most terrifying mask in cinema history (suck it Jason, Myers and Leatherface). Seriously, put Dr Dekker Nightbreed into Google image search.

It was around 2010 that rumours started to circulate that an original workprint of the full 2 hours extra version had been found literally sitting in a cupboard somewhere, or so the story goes. The group Occupy Midian, supported by Barker, used the extremely rough VHS cut amalgamated with the cinema release to tour the new Cabal (after the original novel) cut around at various film festivals and special one off screenings with the explicit aim of generating enough interest and support to get a release. Their hopes have now been realised.

There aren’t any solid details yet beyond the 2014 release. Scream Factory have set expectations by confirming that it will take some time to properly restore the Cabal cut, which remember is basically a VHS that sat in a cupboard since the late 80s. Additionally, it is likely to be a US only release at first, although the team behind Occupy Midian have stated that a distributor wants to release it in the UK.

Fatal Pictures’ Heir Goes Into Production

Fatal Pictures, in association with Red Sneakers Media, have announced production details for Heir, slated to be their final short film.


The official synopsis reads “After connecting with a stranger of similar interests online, family man Gordon and his son Paul embark on an ill-fated road trip in which Gordon aims to indulge in a secret passion. Before the day ends a horrible truth will be uncovered and a harsh lesson will be learned.” Quite what the “interest” and “passion” refer to have yet to be elaborated upon, but given the twisted explorations into sociopathy seen in the likes of Fatal Pictures’ previous efforts Worm and Familiar, and the fact Heir is stated to be a “practical FX driven horror short which examines one of society’s darkest taboos,” it’s unlikely to involve unicorns and rainbows.

Heir’s production will also see Fatal Pictures enter the world of crowdsourcing, and to convince potential investors of their intention, the script was sent out to a number of prominent members of the horror community, including FEARnet’s Alyse Wax (“A monstrous spin on an all-too-familiar tale of bad parenting”), Fangoria’s Dave Pace Bonello, (“Powell is an unflinching examiner of the perversion of humanity”), and cult horror actor Bill Oberst Jr (“An honest-to-God, bona fide new notion of terror”), who will also be starring in the film alongside frequent Fatal Pictures collaborator Robert Nolan.

Some of the donation rewards will include

  • The full rights to Vessel, an original, unproduced short film script from Fatal Pictures and described as “a unique blend of Whatever Happened To Baby Jane and Frankenstein.”
  • The original Heir poster painting, signed by key members of the cast and crew.
  • Limited edition DVDs and Blu-rays of Familiar, which will feature an extra special, exclusive bonus feature, to remain a secret until the discs ship.
  • Two major props from Fatal Pictures’ previous films. From Worm, Geoffrey Dodd’s suitcase of horrors (hand crafted by writer/director Richard Powell) and from Familiar, the squid monster which John Dodd digs out from his leg, which is promised to come covered in dried blood!

Dates, Films, And Guests Announced For Grimmfest 2013

Returning to Manchester in October for its fifth year, Grimmfest 2013 promises to be an unforgettable four days of exciting features that no horrors fan should miss.


Hansel And Gretel Get Baked, the stoner re-imagining of the classic Brothers Grimm fable, will be having its northern premiere at the festival.

Grimmfest, as Manchester’s leading international festival of horror and cult films, has been bringing us the latest releases in nightmare-inducing cinema for the past four years, with such gems as Sinister, American Mary and Cockneys Vs. Zombies premiering at last year’s festival. Judging from the chatter around the proverbial water cooler, this year’s weekend will be the best so far, and with the premiere of at least fourteen films, celebrity special guests, and Q&As with some special effects legends, it’s easy to see why.

Although the team at Grimmfest are keeping most details under wraps for now (in an attempt to keep the festival draped in mystery), the first two film announcements have recently been made, and they will not disappoint. In homage to their namesakes, the Brothers Grimm, the festival will firstly be showing the Northern premiere of Hansel And Gretel Get Baked, an ‘update’ on the original fairytale, with a cannibal pot dealer and stoner teenagers in place of the traditional main characters. This modern retelling of a children’s classic stars Lara Flynn Boyle (Twin Peaks, Wayne’s World) as a pot-head witch who uses drugs to lure children to her house so that she can eat them, in an attempt to retain her youthful beauty.

This comedic horror will be followed by the English premiere of Chad Crawford Kinkle’s first full length feature, Jugface. Described as “a sinister slice of Southern Gothic,” Jugface is a twist on the human sacrifice horror tale, following the story of a young pregnant girl who tries to escape her backwoods clan in order to save herself from being sacrificed to ‘the pit’.

A number of special guests have also been announced, with stars from Game Of Thrones, The Woman and Hellraiser all scheduled to make an appearance: this is a meet and greet opportunity you will not want to miss. There will also be some incredibly impressive guests in the form of the special effects team of such high profile works as Star Wars, X-Men: First Class, and World War Z, who will be exhibiting their work at the festival.

More announcements on films and guests will be made in the coming weeks, so keep an eye out for more horror genre treasures.

Even in the early stages, Grimmfest 2013 promises to be an unmissable experience. The festival will be running from Thursday, 3rd October to Sunday, 6th October 2013 at the Dancehouse Theatre in Manchester. Early bird festival passes are on sale until Thursday, 8th August, and can be purchased from the Grimmfest website. Tickets for individual days and films have not yet been released.
