critics consensus

Critic Reviews for Nightmare Cinema

All Critics (44) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (34) | Rotten (10)

  • 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.

    June 21, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • [A] scattered but amusing horror anthology that gives five directors a whack at telling short, contained tales of terror, "Creepshow"-style.

    June 21, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • 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.

    June 21, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

  • A mysterious plot, Reaser's wonderfully committed performance and some unsettling imagery combine to make this one the most intriguing of the shorts.

    October 27, 2019 | Rating: 3 | Full Review…
  • High production value and diverse tales of terror make this a standout horror anthology.
