Nightmares

Nightmares

About

Nightmares assembles four macabre short stories (three of which are scripted by Crowe and the fourth by Bloom), and, perhaps unurprisingly, the result is uneven. The most successful one stars Estevez who, in an adult version of The Last Starfighter, finds a computer game all too realistic. The others scrape the usual barrel of horror clichés without ever transcending the genre: evil cars, rats turning on humans and the obligatory serial killer all make an appearance.

Cast & Connections

  • Actor: Cristina Raines, Emilio Estevez, Joe Lambie, Clare Nono, Raleigh Bond, Robert Phelps, Anthony James
  • Director: Joseph Sargent
  • Writer: Jeffrey Bloom, Christopher Crowe
  • Producer: Christopher Crowe
  • Photographer: Mario DiLeo, Gerald Perry Finnerman

In a nutshell

Plenty of short-story-type twists ensure that the ensuing drama plays second fiddle to cheap, unsatisfying pay-offs.
