In this twisted horror anthology featuring five ghoulish tales of terror from some of the genre’s best and bloodiest, five strangers are drawn to an abandoned movie theater and forced to watch their deepest and darkest fears play out before them.
“A fun time, and for the Joe Dante segment alone, it’s worth it.” – Chris Bumbray, JoBlo’s Movie Emporium
Lurking in the shadows is the Projectionist (Mickey Rourke), who preys upon their souls with his monstrous collection of disturbing films. As each reel spins its sinister tale, the characters find frightening parallels to their own lives. Concocted by Masters of Horror creator Mick Garris (Stephen King’s The Stand), this fun and freaky throwback to such horror anthology classics as Creepshow and Tales from the Crypt unleashes new works from Garris, Joe Dante (Gremlins), David Slade (30 Days of Night), Ryuhei Kitamura (Midnight Meat Train), and Alejandro Brugues (Juan of the Dead). Creepy tales of demented plastic surgeons, maniacs in the woods, demon possessed students, nightmares that become real and dead people who just won’t stay dead make Nightmare Cinema a gore-drenched treat for horror fanatics craving a truly scary night at the movies! (Various Directors, 2019, USA, 118 mins., Rated R)
