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
Really weird movie, but I disagree that this movie is about teenage angst.
Very boring. Not feeling this one at all.
I love German horror movies!! Really great
Fair warning: They are not kidding about that strobe disclaimer. That aside, this is a really interesting, strange little film that had way more heart than I was expecting. May we all find our teenage angst E.T. some day.
Boring, uninteresting, annoying strobes and loud music. Difficult to follow, and not in a good way.
