On this episode of the B-Movie Cast Mary and Nic are joined by two special guests from the U.K.: show regular, photographer & writer Mark Mawston and filmmaker John Stevenson (director of “Kung Fu Panda” and “Sherlock Gnomes”).

We start the show off with our top movie picks from 2019. We’re not just talking new films, we’re also looking at any movies we saw for the first time in 2019. Then the gang is taking a look at one of Clive Barker’s most interesting, and controversial, films: “Nightbreed” from 1990. This is a film that turns the idea of horror on its head. It asks the question “what if the monsters were the heroes?”. While Barker’s original film clocked in at over 2.5 hours, the studio released a heavily edited cut that just ran 1 hour & 42 minutes. However, we’re checking out one of the ‘director’s cut versions which has more than 20 minutes of additional footage.

So join us in looking at a lost gem featuring amazing make-up and practical special effects as well as a truly original story from one of horror’s legends; Clive Barker!
