Movie Info

The morning after a wild party, a young film student awakens in the arms of a mysterious actress. Unsure where they are, the two startle to find a video camera at the foot of the bed aimed at them. Suspicious of one another, the lovers decide to watch the tape. Their apprehension turns to terror as they see themselves on screen gleefully committing a savage murder in the room they've just slept in. But there are no victims, no blood, no sign of struggle. The aspiring filmmaker doesn't have time to investigate. He is late for a very important class -- he has to pitch his next film. Arriving late to class, he recounts the horrifying experience he just walked away from, convincing class members it's fiction. By the time the class enthusiastically votes to produce his movie, it is too late for him to back out. So now, the director spends his days filming the waking nightmares that he discovers nearly every morning on videotape, and spends his nights trying to discover who is filming him.

The no-budget Nightmare boasts a can't miss horror concept, but it has no idea how to resolve it.

What Would Toto Watch?

... an interesting (though unsatisfactory) hybrid of Asian horror motifs (as in 1998's Ring), combined with giallo-style gore of the Dario Argento variety.

It has a great premise that it convolutes too students are seldom as fascinating as they think they are.

O roteiro repleto de furos e as tentativas frustradas de provocar sustos resultam em um filme não apenas estúpido, mas extremamente aborrecido. Byeong-ki Ahn se sairia bem melhor em seu segundo longa, Phone.

Audience Reviews for Nightmare


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.

(***): 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.


Started chic & stylish but turnin' out to be kinda confusing, messy & losing control when further progressing.
