Tribes of the Moon: The Making of Nightbreed (2014)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Highly entertaining documentary about the making of Clive Barker's NIGHTBREED and the various troubles it had once it was completed. Craig Sheffer, Christine McCorkindale, Doug Bradley, Anne Bobby and Simon Bamford are just a few of the names that are here being interviewed as they discuss the movie, their characters as well as the various things that happened during the production. It's really too bad that Barker himself isn't here to discuss things but there are a few comments from him via old interviews. With all of that said, if you're a fan of the film then you'll enjoy hearing all of the behind-the-scenes stories. There are some great discussions about the original screenplay as well as the cast sharing their thoughts on Barker's direction as well as the various special effects used in the picture. We also get to see clips from The Cabal cut of the picture and we hear a bit about the studio's tampering of the original version.

Excellent retrospective documentary

Warning: Spoilers
This 72-minute retrospective documentary covers a lot of interesting and illuminating ground on the making of Clive Barker's horror/fantasy monsterfest "Nightbreed."Doug Bradley and Hugh Ross both discuss how they first met Barker while in acting in stage plays for him. Anne Bobby shares a touching anecdote about how the scene in which she saves Babette's life inspired her to become involved in animal rescue. Simon Bamford relates a funny story in which he reveals that his cute little dog companion didn't really care for him and hence was difficult to work with. Craig Sheffer reveals that the Cabal make-up took six hours to apply. Christine McCorkindale talks about taking aerobics classes for her role as Shuna Sassi and that the full body make-up took six to seven hours to apply. Moreover, we also learn that the set for Midian was built at the legendary Pinewood studios, Warner Brothers misleadingly marketed the movie as a slasher flick, Bradley's voice was dubbed by another actor in the theatrical version, and Ross was brought back for reshoots so his character Narcisse would survive in the theatrical version (he gets killed in the director's cut). Recommended viewing for fans of the film.
