"...There are remarkable moments scattered throughout -- wild nightmare visions and a tingling sound track keyed around Danny Elfman's music..."
Description by OLDIES.com:
Boone (Craig Sheffer) may be a troubled young man, but his troubles are just beginning. Set up as the fall guy in a string of slasher murders, he decides he'll hide by crossing the threshold that separates us from them and sneak into the forbidden subterranean realm of Midian. Boone will live among the monsters.
Hellraiser creator Clive Barker writes (adapting his novel Cabal) and directs this vivid leap into horror that asks: in the battle of man vs. monster, who's really the monster? The answer supplies flesh-crawling suspense, sudden fear, a colorful Danny Elfman score and a creepy array of shape-shifting beings. They are the Nightbreed, denizens of a world beyond death, beyond the imagination, perhaps beyond anything you've seen.
A man flees a disturbed past and an empty future pursued by the law, a psychopathic killer, and a woman who still loves him. His goal is to seek sanctuary in the tiny town of Midian, somewhere in central Canada. In this town, which appears on the surface to be nothing but a graveyard, but "Midian is where the monsters go," according to legend. Under the graves lies a massive complex for the lost souls to live, but at a terrible price. Adapted by Clive Barker from his novel, "Cabal."
