Based on the novel Cabal, by Clive Barker, this is the story of the tormented Aaron Boone (Sheffer), frantically searching for the truth behind his nightmares and visions. Framed for a string of murders, police gunfire sends him into the subterranean city of Midian, the dwelling place of the Nightbreed, the undead nocturnal monsters seen in his nightmares.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits images that are generally sharp and detailed, with good contrast and shadow delineation (despite obvious sets and fabricated night scenes). Colors are generally well balanced, with fleshtones appearing a bit orange at times. Blacks can seem slightly weak, while othertimes deep and solid. Pixleization and edge enhancement are evident throughout. Some film grain and artifacts are revealed from the source element. (Suzanne Hodges)
