The Nightbreed Cabal Cut screening in Los Angeles, California grew to two screenings that both sold out. This, in addition to the hard work that everyone has put in to raise awareness of this film, has brought about a wonderful thing.
On June 12, Clive Barker announced on his twitter:
My friends, Clive here, writing to share some wonderful news. Following the two Sold Out screenings of NIGHTBREED: The Cabal Cut on Sunday, Morgan Creek has given us permission to show the cut around the world and to raise money to prepare the cut for a release on Blu-ray... This could not, would not have happened without your voices. We have all been heard. The Morgan Creek team have my thanks and my respect. Very seldom does anyone in the movie business pay attention as they have, understanding perhaps that the message of the movie as I shot it is one that dramatizes a different ending to the age-old story of how a war between Humankind and something Other draws to a close. The real NIGHTBREED will be available for everyone to see. I hope its message of redemption and forgiveness move you.
When I first heard this news, I was doing a happy dance all around my apartment. The Occupy Midian Facebook group was donning their celebratory hats once again, and with good reason. But we must keep in mind that there is still quite a bit of work that must be done. Morgan Creek is giving permission to show the cut worldwide, which will raise more awareness about this wonderful film. Also they are giving permission to raise money for preparing the Cabal cut for a Blu-ray release. This means there are still many things that need to be done to the film for it to be ready for release, as well as money that needs to be earned in order to put in this work. We are still waiting for further news from the wonderful folks that have been working so hard on Nightbreed the Cabal Cut on what measures they are going to take to raise funds, and how we the fans can help.
So join us in the celebration in this huge step forward, but please help us continue to spread the word.
Thank you to everyone who has worked so hard on helping to get the word out about this film. And for those of you who are able to attend, there is another screening coming up at the Portage Theatre in Chicago on Friday, July 13th. For more information on this screening please visit http://occupymidian.com/screenings.html also check there frequently to see if any more screenings have been added.
To all those who have helped in anyway big or small, the Tribes of the Moon embrace you.
