‘Nightbreed: The Director’s Cut’ Blu-ray Details and Release Date Announced

Nightbreed

For horror fans everywhere Nightbreed: The Director’s Cut is without a doubt one of the most highly-anticipated home video releases of not just 2014 but possibly all time. Clive Barker‘s horror-fantasy cult classic has traveled one of the roughest roads imaginable from the writer-director’s initial conceptions of the story, to its troubled production and theatrical release, and lastly to the audience that discovered on video what had been ignored at the box office.

The fan-created “Cabal Cut” of Nightbreed that first began being assembled over five years ago sought to restore Barker’s film to its intended epic form, and toured horror and comic conventions all over the world to great success in the hope that one day it would receive an official release. Check out this article that I wrote back in April 2012 for further background into Nightbreed‘s post-production foibles and the history of the “Cabal Cut.”

Finally Shout! Factory picked up the rights to release the extended Nightbreed on Blu-ray and DVD this year. Despite being pushed back several months from its original projected summer debut in order to allow more time for a proper restoration of the longer director’s cut, Scream Factory revived interest in the long-awaited Blu-ray via an announcement today offering tons of information. Read all the info below.

Ralph Mcquarrie's Concept Art For Empire Strikes Back

George Lucas’s first Star Wars opened in theaters in 1977. Since then five more episodes in the film franchise have debuted, a couple animated series have aired – more are on their way – and more merchandise than anyone can count have been sold. Now with the massive franchise belonging to Walt Disney Studios, who knows where Star Wars could go. We’ll be getting a new episode of the franchise in 2015, which will be followed by two more episodes and spinoff titles.

But if you have ever wondered what the marketing for the sequel, The Empire Strikes Back, was like before the age of social media and the internet was like, then a video released by the official Star Wars YouTube channel can offer you a look. The original Empire Strikes Back teaser doesn’t even have any clips from the film, but it does have a bunch of images of concept art drawn by Ralph McQuarrie, and early stills of Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and other cast members preparing for the highly anticipated sequel. Best part of this teaser, there are no spoilers – you’ll see what I mean when you watch this trailer.
