A surrealistic and bizarre piece of meta-horror, Nightmare is not quite as intelligent as it thinks it is, but it nonetheless manages to be a relatively solid and entertaining piece of horror.

Clearly inspired by the surreal imagery of, it seems, every great and original auteur in the entire history of cinema, director Dylan Bank and co-writer Morgan Pehme apparently approached NIGHTMARE with the highest of artistic ambitions...then failed at all of them. Then failed at creating any commercial viable product. Then failed at any standard approaching professionalism. Then failed at even being gifted amateurs.
Then added annoying, pretentious, humorless film students.
The result: annoying, pretentious, humorless film students making an art-pr0n horror movie, entitled NIGHTMARE, about annoying, pretentious, humorless film students making an art-pr0n horror movie, entitled NIGHTMARE, about annoying, pretentious, humorless film students making an art-pr0n horror movie, entitled NIGHTMARE, about...
Roughly 10 minutes into the premise, one might think, ‚y'know, if this story even HAS a final reveal and explanation, it probably won't be worth the effort of watching that long‚?. One would be right.
NIGHTMARE does, though, boast this virtue: many, many lingering in-focus close-ups of blood-smeared co-ed titz and azz.

An inspiring film maker (J. Bloomrosen) gets deja vu after a wild party and a snuff murder occurs before him on screen after waking up, motivating him to reavaluate what happened! Low budget somewhat improvised horror film which doesn't make a whole lot of sense!

(***): Thumbs Up
The concept of this film intrigued me and I feel the filmmakers were able to pull an effective low budget horror film that is worth seeking out.
