As we wrap up our week of looking back at Nightbreed and ahead to Nightbreed: The Cabal Cut, tonight we are sharing and comparing Clive Barker’s original drawings of Nightbreed characters and how they resulted on film. This is but a sample of the work that Clive shares himself on his website, and has published in books. (One of Barker’s rorschach drawings from Cabal is actually responsible for a jailhouse style tattoo on my boyfriend’s leg, but that’s an embarrassing story that he has to live with.) No matter what might have been lost in translation from the film that Clive shot and what came out in 1990, there’s one thing that Clive must have found solace in. That his Nightbreed looked very much like how he initially envisioned them.
Featuring: Aaron Boone, “Buttonface” Killer, Kinski, Leroy Gomm, Shuna Sassi, and Peloquin
