Boone (Craig Sheffer) may be a troubled young man, but his troubles are just beginning. Set up as the fall guy in a string of slasher murders, he decides he'll hide by crossing the threshold that separates us from them and sneak into the forbidden subterranean realm of Midian. Boone will live among the monsters.Hellraiser creator Clive Barker writes (adopting his novel Cabal) and directs this vivid leap into horror that asks: in the battle of man vs. monster, who's really the monster? The answer supplies flesh-crawling suspense, sudden fear, a colourful Danny Elfman score and a creepy array of shape-shifting beings. They are the nightbreed denizens of a world beyond death, beyond the imagination, perhaps beyond anything you've seen.
