Shot in Alberta, this fantasy/horror epic concerns the monsters of Midian, and the hero (Craig Sheffer) and villain (David Cronenberg) who are searching for them before the creatures’ existence and abilities are exploited by humanity. Nightbreed now gets an extended cut that has creator Clive Barker’s enthusiastic support. It’s 20 minutes longer but features 40 mins of new or revised footage.
