This is a nice little movie. My wife actually got me into this movie, as I had never heard of it before.

Fuck it, this one terrific horror flick. Novel is pretty much kick ass too.

Another one I really loved from Barker, even if critics were mostly negative, was LORD OF ILLUSIONS.
not to mention CANDYMAN, one of the finest horror flicks ever, although he didn't direct that one.

I can't wait for someone to make movie based on Waveworld. That book is one hell of a horror story.

Lord of Illusions is a greta movie, Jack. And Candyman is just a classic imo.

There are several good flicks made by Barker.

Recent "DREAD" was good. Not sure about "Book of Blood" still haven't check it out, and "Midnight Meat Train" was good. It was directed by the same guy who made Japanese cult classics "Alive" and "Versus" so no wonders why it had terrific action scenes and polished look.

if you haven't seen "VERSUS" go check it out quickly, it's one of the best action horrors ever. Plot: in world, there are 666 gates to Hell. One of them is in Japan, and it's seal of Resurrection... which means, everyone killed in that forest where the seal is, returns back from the dead as zombie. Some of the coolest action scenes in history of cinema. Gun and sword fight with zombies? Martial arts fight against zombies? Badass ending? You can see it there.

Yip, Clive Barker has done some good movies imo. As for *Midnight Meat Train* I thought it was just ok, nothing great tbh.

Studio refuse to make it since there is no "interest in original cut" so they think spending money on a new DVD and remastering extra footage is waste of money.

I started the petition and it's still going. They are refusing to release the footage but it will happen eventually. Rumored to be 45 minutes of extra footage.

I learned that it existed through Joe Bob Briggs' Monstervision but stopped watching the movie when I saw the mutants show up. I got my fill of that crap after seeing Little Monsters and wishing I had just poured boiling water in my eyes instead. This reminded me of the horror version of The Garbage Pail Kids. Why? Just... why?

I did sit through the ENITRE Director's Cut of Lord of Illusions though. Not worth it. 2.5 hours of bad performance art.

Nightbreed was So bad it's Good.

Lord of Ilussion... I had a same problem. Director's Cut was bit boring, but theatrical cut was much better (like Nightbreed, it's SBiG). Anyway, LoI was bit "dirty" movie, it had awkward characters and some weird scenes.

Critics also seem to hated it when it came out... no wonder Barker hadn't direct anything since.

oh, and I didn't like Scott Bacula at all. He seems mistcast.

I love Scott Bakula but I agree he was miscast. I don't know if he'll ever work in a horror movie, he is the eternal cinematic boy scout.

I can only imagine him playing in some romantic rolls, and nothing else... ok, maybe some cowboy movie too.
