NightBreed: Thoughts on what could be.
One of my favorite movies of all time is the underrated NightBreed, from the mind of Clive Barker. After I seen the movie I then picked up the book it was based on, Cabal, written by good old Clive as well. I read the comics when they came out, I loved it, the mythos involved in the story is so grand and holds so much potential in a number of arenas that it boggle's my mind that nobody is doing anything with this property. It's houses so many characters, and themes, and has already proven to be brought to life in comics, books, and the big screen. I personally have a few ideas for a comic book that I'd love to pitch, I just don't know who to pitch it to, but I'm researching. I also heard that Clive is supposed to be doing a directors cut of the film, IMDB has some info on their site stating that a ton of footage was cut out last minute, gore and character development stuff as well. I personally would buy that the day it hits, but thats just me. How bout a toy line? A video game? Well, Im going to seriously look into how to go about putting together a pitch for a new series, as well as some artwork for it, I'm also going to do some sketches of NightBreed character and put them up here, so check back soon.
