Audience Reviews for The American Nightmare
FREAKING CLASSIC . . . the writer off to my right says to watch Nightmares in Red White and Blue. We are revisiting our nightmares and/or working through our fears by watching horror movies. Lots of good gore and explanation . . . now I want to see NIGHTMARES IN RED, WHITE, AND BLUE to compare the two. This movie is out-dated pre-9/11.
awesome insight into some the best horror films from the 70's. It was very interesting to me how they got there motivation and cause I have met a lot of these directors.
A good intro to select horror classics of the 70s. The best part of this documentary is that it is padded by interviews with the directors and film-makers. This group of film-makers examines the themes and subtext of their own and their peers' work, and how this greatly affected the path horror film-making took afterwards. Also, you might find a gem you haven't gotten around to yet.
