Clive Barker Podcast’s Scene of the Week

Spread the love

Hello Everyone,

For this week’s edition of Clive Barker’s Podcast Scene of the Week, I’m paying tribute to my favorite Nightbreed character Peloquin. I don’t know if it was the brilliant makeup design by Image Animation, Oliver Parker’s exceptional performance, or how cool I thought it was the first time I heard a monster say “fuck.” All I knew was that I’d fallen love with a monster. I’m pretty sure if I were to ask many fans who their favorite Breed character is on the spot Peloquin would be at the top of their list.

He certainly sets a tone when we first meet him in the film. His speech to Boone about how “Everything’s True” is my favorite moment from the movie. I love how he’s so casual and dismissive of Boone’s presence causing the viewer to be both cautious and fascinated about his intentions. He’s a character that’s shrouded in mystery and that’s what attracts us to him.
