In Clive Barker's Nightbreed we meet Aaron Boone, who inexplicably dreams of Midian, a hidden subterranean world where monsters have created a haven from humanity. In Def by Temptation we meet Joel, who grew up in the Church, but has recently been questioning his faith. The ghost of Joel’s father compels him to visit his cousin in New York, where things quickly descend into macabre madness as a bloodthirsty woman sets her sights on his cousin. With impeccable, pitch-black senses of humor, obsessions with religious mysticism and iconography, and appearances from a young Samuel L. Jackson, and David Cronenberg, Nightbreed and Def By Temptation offer up nightmare-inducing fantasy worlds like no other.
