In 1990, Clive Barker made an auteur attempt at monster moviemaking. Barker planned to make the Star Wars of horror movies, a fully-realized world with history and mythology and culture. And to realize that vision, Barker planned to make a trilogy of pictures.
Instead of all that, the world got Nightbreed.
Nightbreed is a mess of a movie--at times inspired, at times awful--but it is beloved by many (including Courtney), and for good reason. This week, Chris and Courtney cover all things Nightbreed, plus: thoughts on Cloverfield Paradox, empathizing with beautiful weirdos, and could this movie hate cops more?
*Note: We watched the Director's Cut, released by Shout! Factory in 2014.
