Nightbreed Reviews

September 21, 2020
Unfortunately, the story moves a bit too fast to take in the mythos, underdeveloped religious aspects, impressive subterraneous sets, and slimy behemoth details.

Nightbreed reads pretty firmly as a queer allegory, not just because of its very publicly "out" creator...There isn't a great deal of subtext, here; this is full-on text. Unfortunately, there's not a great deal more to it than that

A complete mess of a movie. This should feel like perfectly mixed fantasy and horror. But it's only laughable. [Full review in Spanish].

Clive Barker is the Douglas Sirk of splatter.

For all of its blockbuster aspirations, the clumsily vulgar script and uneven performances leave [Nightbreed] mired in b-grade horror territory.

Clive Barker's "Nightbreed" suffers from a very flawed and weak premise, one that doesn't even come close to supporting the two-hour runtime.

The only really strong aspect of Nightbreed is the 'breed itself-there are some truly bizarre and imaginative monstrosities on display.

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.

Although Barker knows a good, eerie setting when he sees one, he can't seem to do anything with it.
