Nightbreed - 11/8/14

This week, we watch Colin's pick of the restored director's cut of Clive Barker's much-maligned 1990 monster epic Nightbreed.  A troubled canuck survives his own death and searches out the hidden city of Midian, an underground city where monsters live, as his girlfriend, a psychopathic psychiatrist, and a mob of rednecks, close in.  Listen to our thesis-worthy analysis of Clive Barker's fiction, film work, and reoccurring themes in this episode!
