Anyway, she and her husband start on a vacation to get away for a while when the car runs out of gas. He goes off hiking to get some gas and she is attacked by someone in this mask, there is more build up to this but essentially that's when things start to go haywire.
From there we are treated to a lot of gore murders and some really goofy lines by a group of people that are staying in a cabin close by playing some erotic truth or dare games. Our lady stumbles upon this party and then the plot starts to unwind.
Things I liked about this flick:
Fast Moving - Decent Special Effects - Comedic Scenes - Some Surprises
Things I didn't like:
Poor Lighting - many scenes seem completely washed out and it makes it hard to see what's happening
Predictable Plot Overall - having seen my share of horror the plot is obvious from early on but there is a surprise
I would recommend this movie though if you want to have a fun time. It's not fantastic but it will provide some entertainment for it's running time. This is also one of the few discs that actually provides you with behind the scenes and more. It looks like the cast and crew had fun shooting this and the bonus footage is fun to watch.
Check it out, it's not a masterpiece but it is a nice distraction.
Sure, it's low budget(all the After Dark films are), but it's a fun variation on the slasher genre. A lot of the reviews on here complain about the acting. In actuality it's not bad for a low budget horror movie. Does anyone really expect Oscar worthy material in a movie called "Nightmare Man"?
In short, "Nightmare Man" is a campy, occasionally clever little film. It doesn't take itself too seriously, and it moves along at a good pace. What more can you ask for in a LionsGate video? More movies like this, for starters.
The basic idea of the movie is, the husband cannot perform in bed, the wife gets a fertility mask, never returns it because she gets a shower and the next thing you know she is waking up in the car (okay something happens, but spoilers).
Apparently the mask is haunting her, and her husband is taking her to a mental hospital, and being a total jerk about it, seriously, this guy is a piece of , well you know.
So the car runs out of gas, he leaves her there (so she won't say "i told you so" the whole way, according to the husband. Now, if this hasn't peaked your interest, then don't watch it. The film gets darker, and by darker, i mean someone forgot to higher a lighting crew.
Now while the wife is running in the woods, you get introduced to a cast of forgettable characters, seriously, the cliche of playing truth or dare with sexual undertones (sound interesting? it's not)
Then the wife bursts in, and i'm not going to say anything else about that stuff.
So, there is a story, a plot, etc. Does any of this get resolved in a well written fashion? nope. The last twenty minutes are the most interesting (minus the final scenes, ugh). The acting is what you would expect, nothing exceptional. You don't really care about the characters, it's rather boring, poorly paced, and the "twist" didn't surprise me, i'm sorry.
All in all it was a movie, it was watchable, i just doubt i would watch it again. (if this review isn't helpful, could you please tell me how i could be helpful?)

Initially, Nightmare Man looks like a cheaply made piece of crap with no real scares. A vapid film that banks on excessive blood and nudity to keep your attention. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Tom Hoover
