    Here's hoping for a good result from the public. I'd hate for it to never see the light of day.

    How was this one?

    I really didn't like Lord of Illusions that much, but felt Hellraiser, Midnight Meat Train, and Candyman to be fantastic.

    It's more a fantasy film than horror. It's different and a lot better than Lord of Illusions which I didn't like at all.

    While I'd love for this to happen, I never believe that internet petitions do all that much.

    Still, if this is released, I'll pick it up straight away.

    Like I told them in my email, I want this film but refuse to settle for the bare-bones existing dvd, esp. with rumors of a director's cut circulating every year or so and the quality of Clive's other films dvd releases.
    My Bloody Valentine petition may've worked or helped, so I happily sent my email in. Think I'll send another from my alternate email.

    The issue is that even Barker himself said that the movie, as it exists in the theatrical cut, "doesn't really make sense and work as a piece". He's mentioned in several interviews that there's 30-50 minutes (if memory serves) of the flik that will fill in the gaps and allow the piece to flow a bit more seamlessly.

    I personally assumed that Barker's back catalog of films would be re-released around the time the Hellraiser remake comes around. Obviously, that's just assumption, but i was basing it on things like the recent "special edition" re-releases of the first Friday and MVB earlier this year.

    I added my support. I hope they will release new cut, Christopher Young can still add some additional music, they can record BarkerĀ“s commentary and I want to see the interview where Clive explains why he chose Cronenberg to play such perfect role and where David Cronenberg tells how he enjoyed to play cold killer :) Yeah!

    Same, I always wished there was more of him in the film. Hopefully the exercised footage helps fix that.

    I emailed them as well. I would love to see Nightbreed in it's true form.

    Anyone ever read any of the Nightbreed comics that came out in the 90's? I recall there being a cool Peliquin story among others. My favortie was the Nightbreed vs. Rawhead Rex arc though.

    I like Clive Barker's visions, I enjoyed Nightbreed a long time ago, I need to see it again, would enjoy a extended cut.

    new info unveiled regarding the 145 minute workprint

    UPDATE - 10 June 2009 - extended workprint discovered!
    We just finished watching a 145 minute version of the film's mid-1989 workprint! That's 44 minutes longer than the theatrical release!! And it's even more significant than that since there are none of the later re-shoots of Decker's murders, so the actual deleted footage is far more than 44 minutes!
    Yes, there's (lots) more violence as the Sons of the Free invade Midian, yes there's some deleted stop motion footage, yes, Narcisse gets decapitated, yes Lori stabs herself on a hilltop and Boone bites her... Yes, yes, yes!

    Now, this is just a VHS copy so it's not of releasable quality, so... thank you for your continuing messages of support - let's keep working to get a proper DVD release for an extended Nightbreed...
