Nightbreed

Trivia: Lylesberg, the "leader" of the Nightbreed, is portrayed by Doug Bradley. Bradley was famous for playing the character of "Pinhead" in most entries of the "Hellraiser" movies series, also created by Clive Barker. Several other minor characters in this film were also portrayed by other "Hellraiser" alum.

Trivia: The post-production process of the film was very dramatic. The studios became worried that the subject matter was too strange for audiences, and in an attempt to make the film faster and simpler to understand, they demanded that nearly an hour of material be removed from the film. Director Clive Barker also maintains that the film wasn't marketed properly. A Director's Cut of the film (containing much of the cut footage) was announced more than 20 years after the film's original release-date.

Trivia: In the original cut of the film, the character Narcisse (the man with the partially skinned head who Boone first meets in the hospital, then travels to Midian with after being resurrected) was killed by Decker during the final battle sequence. However, his character proved to be popular during early test-screenings, so his death was cut from the film, and director Clive Barker shot a few new scenes with the character to expand his role slightly.
