The Nightmare (Der Nachtmahr)

The Nightmare (Der Nachtmahr)

Directed by Akiz

After a party where Tina watches a gruesome video on her friend’s phone, she begins to experience nasty nightmares. That would be bad enough, but then she begins to be haunted by a monster who nobody else can see. After her therapist suggests talking to the monster, Tina resists, then eventually relents. And that’s when things get even weirder. Is she losing her mind? Or is everyone else crazy? Or perhaps Tina’s trapped in a nightmare? German director Akiz’s first film in a planned trilogy offers no easy answers, but that’s part of the ferocious fun of this stylish and surreal Euro-horror head trip.

A 17-year-old girl is haunted by a goblin-like monster in this surreal German horror film.

Cast: Carolyn Genzkow, Wilson Gonzalez Ochsenknecht, Alexander Scheer, Kim Gordon, Sina Tkotsch

Very creepy, and in an original way. I think the "creature" was a metaphor for what she was feeling. Alienated, so to speak. But, it was so strong that it manifested in reality in a distorted form for others to see.
