Audience Reviews for Nightmares (Stage Fright)

Forgotten horror gem, Nightmares aka Stage Fright is a fun, entertaining little flick from down under. I really enjoyed this tense chiller, and it is a film that is well acted, and it boasts the right amount of thrills, mixed with good storytelling. I found this film to be underrated, and it deserved much more praise that it has received. Sure, it's a film that lacks at times, but overall, it's a pleasant forgotten gem for genre fans. The story is good, and there are effective moments that really elevate the film in terms of a cult picture. For viewers that enjoy a good horror tale, Nightmares is a pleasant film to watch, but at times you see that the film should have been improved upon in some areas. This is an entertaining picture worth seeing and it's a forgotten genre film worth rediscovering. There are aspects of the film that don't stand out, but there are enough effective moments to make this a good film for horror enthusiasts. The genre of ozploitation has had plenty of memorable pictures that have been made, and this one is one of the more underrated ones that I have seen. The film is far from perfect, but it manages to keep you entertained from start to finish. For a forgotten gem of Australian cinema, Nightmares is a fun picture that is a thrilling, worthwhile film if you enjoy this genre. Aussie horror films are very good and they display a certain character that isn't found in any other horror film. With Nightmares we get that vibe and it is a flawed, but nonetheless good film worth seeing if you enjoy a good roller coaster ride of terror. This is one of those films that is better than expected.
