directors cut

I've talked about my childhood enough in my reviews that I'm sure you've been able to deduce what everyone who knows me knows to be true; I was a pretty weird kid. My favorite movie when I was 10? "Evil Dead". Favorite TV show? "Twin Peaks". Boyhood crush? Mira Sorvino. At some point, my Dad took me to go see "Mimic" in theaters and something about the blonde beauty caused 11 year old me to start seriously crushing.

It's long been known that Clive Barker was ham stringed by his studio when helming the big screen adaptation of his story "Night Breed." Forced to cut nearly 25 minutes of footage from the final release, there has been much demand in the world of fandom for a director's cut.

Sadly, for nearly 20 years now Barker's response has been "I hope so, but we don't know where the footage is." According to the folks over at the long running Clive Barker fansite CliveBarker.info, this lost footage is no longer lost.
