Shout! Factory and Morgan Creek Productions have officially announced that they will bring an "Extended Director’s Cut" of Clive Barker’s cult 1990 horror film "Nightbreed" to disc and VOD next year.

The original film dealt with an underground city of mutant creatures and a doctor (David Cronenberg) intent on killing them all. At the time of release, Fox and Morgan Creek heavily edited the film down from two-and-a-half hours to just 102 minutes.

Called "The Cabal Cut" on the festival circuit, this restored longer version contains over 45 minutes of previously unseen material which is said to be Barker's original vision.
