Although several segments will appeal to horror aficionados, it often feels like a political statement couched in a format that will appeal to the blood and popcorn crowd.
Audience Reviews for The American Nightmare
Doesnt quite doo too much in order to excell as a documentary, but it does enough to give all this infamous horror movies a social context that does shine some light on why these movies happen and how they affect people.
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.
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.
