With a music score by DannyElfman very reminiscent of ''Film/{{Batman}}'', ''Nightbreed'' is a gorgeous, disgusting movie with a captivating mythical mood. The titular Nightbreed aren't quite monsters, and the humans aren't exactly saints either.

* SealedBadassInACan: Early in Boone's introduction to the Breed, he finds that the hall to Baphomet's chamber is lined on either side by locked cells containing Berserkers: Breed who are mindless and deformed (even for monsters), but who's strength is unparalleled. During the climax of the movie, Midian is falling apart, fires are raging through the cemetery, and the Breed are being slaughtered by gun-toting humans. Lylesburg uses his last moments alive [[GodzillaThreshold to unlock ALL the doors]] and drive away the invading humans.

* GollumMadeMeDoIt: In the original novella Decker is driven to kill by his mask 'Button Face' that speaks to him in his mind. This was dropped in the film although a few deleted scenes show the mask talking with Cronenberg's voice.

* {{Flanderization}}: Ashberry in the new comic series. In the original film he turns evil after being burned by Baphomet but prior to that he was halfway decent and even tried to stop Eigerman from massacring the Nightbreed. In the comics even before meeting them he's shown as a full-blown religious zealot (whereas in the film he didn't even believe in the existence of Satan) quoting Bible scripture and murdering people. Likewise in events taking place after the film he's still depicted as such even though the film shows him removing his priest's collar before encountering Baphomet.



* GhostShipping: The main character Boone/Cabal returns from the dead after being shot repeatedly by the police and later continues his romance with his girlfriend.

* DecapitationPresentation: The homocidal Dr. Decker seems to be fond of this. He cuts off a motel clerk's head and places it on the front desk for his wife to find before killing her too. [[spoiler: Later, he decapitates Narcisse and puts the head on a stick before showing it to Boone.]]
