Clive Barker, the creator of Hellraiser and Candyman, brings us Nightbreed. Nightbreed is the story of a guy named Boone, who is played by Craig Sheffer. Boone is having nightmares of this place called Midian. He tells about his dreams and about the murders he’s seen in his dream only to find out that he has been telling in graphic detail exactly what happened in actual murders. Now he is suspected as being the killer. He is chased down to Midian where he is killed at the gates, only then to become a member, and a leader of the Nightbreed.
I have always been a fan of Clive Barker. His movies are always something special. And Nightbreed proves itself to stand up there with his classics as “Hellraiser” and “Candyman.” It opens up with us seeing a family murdered by a guy with a mask. Later on we see that Boone is being blamed for the murders only to find out that the real killer is the one who is framing him. There is no real secret as to who the real killer is because we know from the start. Eventually the killer gets Boone killed at the gates of Midian, soon after Boone becomes a member of the Nightbreed. Once the real killer finds out what exactly is going on at Midian he brings us an army of police officers to overtake Midian, leading to the ultimate battle between good and evil, only this time the monsters are good and the humans are evil. I recommend this movie to anyone that’s a fan of Clive Barker. It’s not as graphic as his other films, but it’s still a great film to watch. It’s a very fun movie and is very fast paced. I give this movie a 7 out of 10.
