As much as Hellraiser is a horror classic, and Lords of Illusion has its moments, Clive Barker’s Nightbreed is a total mess.
Hugely disappointing follow up to Carney's brilliant Once, and diverting Begin Again. I have four main issues with this film:
1). The main actor is horribly miscast - I wanted to watch a film about his brother, or his other band-mates more than him - the pretentious, pious arse.
2). The film begins well - its funny and I was settling in for a sweet, simple story about the minutiae of growing pains. Very quickly, the film abandons any interest…
