Night Breed (1990)

movie-poster-nightbreed

By Scott Goldfine

This epic fantasy about a subterranean city of monsters is the brainchild of horror novelist/director Clive Barker. It’s a love story, a slasher film and a mythological fable all juxtaposed together. Unfortunately, these elements do not coalesce in a meaningful way.

Barker is ambitious and imaginative, but his vision exceeds his reach. Stars Craig Scheffer and director David Cronenberg. Rated R.
