Featured Event: Nightbreed- The Cabal Cut

 Everything is true. God’s an astronaut. Oz is over the rainbow… and Midian is where the monsters live.  -Peloquin, Nightbreed

The Cabal Cut - Convolution

In 1989 Clive Barker created his second full length feature film Nightbreed from his novel Cabal. During post production, 20th Century Fox ordered reshoots to change the empathies of the film from Clive Barker’s cut of Nightbreed to something that they thought would play better to the masses.

The film that was released in September of 1990 was a compromise of reshoots and studio input that never captured the story of Cabal.

Mark Miller started a journey to restore Nightbreed in 2009. He discovered that the original film could not be found, but one day he did find 2 VHS tapes that said “Nightbreed” on them. Once they were transferred to DVD, Mark Miller discovered he had 2 workprints. Enter Clive Barker’s friend Russell Cherrington, UK based Filmmaker and University of Derby Film Lecturer. He took the original film, the work prints, and the original script, and with Editor Jimmi Johnson, started a restoration.

In March 2012 Nightbreed – The Cabal Cut had its world premiere at Mad Monster Party in Charlotte, North Carolina, and since then, it has been screened around the world to sell out crowds.

Joining us will be restoration director Russell Cherrington, Hollywood star and actor Craig Sheffer, who portrayed Aaron Boone/Cabal in the film, and Anne Bobby, actress, writer, and costar of Nightbreed as Lori.  They’ll all be involved in a post-show Q&A and autograph signing session.

SCREENING WILL BEGIN AT 12:00 PM NOON [ESPRESSO_CART_LINK event_id=”3″ anchor=”Register for This Event”]

Convolution members who have already pre-registered will need to request a ticket for this event if they wish to attend, as seating will be limited, and we need to maintain an exact count.  If you have already purchased a membership, and would like to attend this screening, please log into your account here on our website, and then go to the web store, and select the number of tickets for the Cabal Cut screening you’ll need, add them to a cart, and process the purchase.  The tickets have no price- but doing this will help us keep track of the seating available in the room.

PLEASE NOTE:  Every Cabal Cut screening ticket requires a membership for the convention- either a full weekend pass, or a one-day pass for Sunday. If you have NOT yet purchased a membership for the convention, you can add the Cabal Cut screening ticket to your shopping cart with your member pre-registration, and take care of both at the same time!  If you are planning to attend just for the screening- you will still need the one-day membership for Sunday, which can be purchased at our Registration Desk at the Con on Sunday before the screening, and are $20.  Head on over to the event registration system, and pick up your screening passes now, though- to make sure you have one.

Any questions?  Send us an email to chair13 at con-volution dot com.

If there is still seating available when the convention starts, on-site registration will be able to issue tickets to those who are purchasing their memberships at the convention, until the room is full to capacity.

Join us on Sunday as we close out the convention with a bang, and show the newly remade and extended version of Clive Barker’s horror fantasy masterpiece.  The Tribes of the Moon await you…
