Nightmare Cinema

Directed by Alejandro Brugues, Ryuhei Kitamura, David Slade, Joe Dante, Mick Garris

In this twisted horror anthology, five strangers are drawn to an abandoned theater and forced to watch their deepest and darkest fears play out before them. Lurking in the shadows is the Projectionist, who preys upon their souls with his collection of disturbing films. As each reel spins its sinister tale, the characters find frightening parallels to their own lives. A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE.

5 skulls simply for “This Way to Egress”! Spooked the hell out of me, is she crazy or is it a parallel dimension? I really liked the character Riley in Dead too, I would honestly have loved for it to be its own full length film!

Take a bunch of talented filmmakers, a few surprising cameos, some good ideas, small budgets and you get ... well, this. I can't decide whether the cheesy 80s-twilight-zone-ripoff mood is intentional or not; what a disappointment. Surprisingly, expectations are reversed here though - Kitamura delivers a religious tale that has ambition and (almost) gets it right (what's with the low-grade soundtrack?), Dante gives a lukewarm plastic parody that falls kinda flat, Garris' (overlong) take on racism and death hollows out in the middle and his wrap-around wastes Rourke as a stunted, paper-thin collector; Slade's unreliable narrator being the segment that nails it, with a strong black-and-white tale which makes the best use of available means (cinematography and sound editing are spot-on and it is, to me, the scariest segment of them all). Very, very, frustratingly undercooked package that ends up with average, non-thrilling results. Skip this one.
