Nightmare Cinema

Critics Consensus

  • Overall, "Nightmare Cinema" is more stomach-turning than truly frightening, but thanks to the obvious love and care put into it, it's worth seeing.

  • Nightmare Cinema as a whole is the bloodiest, most violent, most gruesome and most twisted movie I've seen this year. And I mean that mostly in a good way.

  • [A] scattered but amusing horror anthology that gives five directors a whack at telling short, contained tales of terror, "Creepshow"-style.

  • Nightmare Cinema starts with a bang, as Brugués drops us into a fun, clever, gory little ride. I was excited for the four installments to follow. I got less and less excited.

  • The whole is certainly diverse, lively and reference-packed enough to please horror fans attracted to this kind of enterprise...

  • The best of the bunch start out unassumingly, then suddenly rip the scales from viewers' eyes - along with any attached hair and skin.
