The uncut version of Clive Barker's Nightbreed was considered a holy grail to horror fanatics for years, yet no one knew where the lost footage was. Fast forward to 2009, when it became apparent that production company Morgan Creek knew where the lost footage was, but weren't about to spend the money to release it. Around this time, two separate VHS work prints were unearthed and subsequently shown to festival audiences. In 2012, the Cabal Cut was edited together from both work prints as well as

The only really strong aspect of Nightbreed is the 'breed itself-there are some truly bizarre and imaginative monstrosities on display.
The Cabal Cut finally captures what Barker was after, warts and all, reinstating depth, emotion, and a human presence to the story, which finds its fantasy footing once again.
If you loved Nightbreed, The Cabal Cut will give you more of what you loved, but it fixes none of the film's shortcomings. It may even emphasize the film's story problems.
CABAL CUT: We get a little more Decker, and quite a bit more redneck rampaging, but there is also inevitably a whole lot more Boone. Longer does not equal better, esp. in horror, and all this extra stuffing does not stop a turkey being a turkey.
The pic remains passable only as a work that is all style and no substance.
Disappointing make-up showcase disguised as a thriller.
Starts out with a bang, ends with a whimper.
Goofily entertaining, with an amusing turn by David Cronenberg.
Although Barker knows a good, eerie setting when he sees one, he can't seem to do anything with it.
