3.0 out of 5 stars A Predictable Nightmare Man January 19, 2009
The first thing I want to say is that I did enjoy this movie. It was a clever blend of Evil Dead, a revenge plot and standard gore fare. This is by no means a putdown as overall I did find this movie entertaining. Was it great? No. Was it horrible? No. So what was it about you may be asking, well, the premise of the film is that a woman orders a fertility mask for her husband because he can't seem to get it up. Maybe he needs some Extenze or Viagra, but no it's a fertility mask that supposed to correct this issue. Whatever, it's horror it doesn't always have to be plausible. She freaks out when she sees the mask and wants it out of her sight.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars I almost gave up on it April 21, 2008
This movie was a pretty typical thriller with the cast of young sexy cannon fodder getting picked off one by because they do stupid things like go out for some fresh air when a mad killer is lurking about. Oh well, the girls were nice to look at. Anyway, it was pretty obvious what was going on here and then we reached the 69 minute mark. That's where the plot took a turn I wasn't expecting (someone else might but not me) and I thought this is really dumb and almost turned it off. Well I did not turn it off and I was rewarded because the final 20 mintues or so supplied an ending I for sure did not see coming and raised this above the 2 star rating I had in mind for it. NIGHTMARE MAN is not a great movie by any stretch of the imagination but for a lights out viewing with some friends and some snacks, this one delivers the goods and is not a bad way to spend 90 minutes. NIGHTMARE MAN is one of the more entertaining of the Horrorfest 2007 movies. There is some nudity in this one and every female in it takes off her shirt at least once. Most of the time it's done just for the sake of showing off for the camera. I won't give away the ending, but it's not typical of the Horrorfest movie endings, where everything is usually wrapped up nice and neatly for the forces of good.

3.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't stop laughing!! April 19, 2008
I love B or even C horror movies, and I've enjoyed most of the after dark films I've see. I will actuaally buy this when it gets under 1.00 on amazon market place. The filming wasn't great, the actors were attractive but only the girl playing Mia did what I would call acting. The setting of the house in the woods is a fave of mine, but the chases through the woods were terrible. I think it had to do with the budget, maybe it would have turned out better if he stalked, not ran throught the trees. I would only reccommend this to people who like B or below horror, and have enjoyed most of the other films to die 4. Otherwise, I can tell you right know that'll you'll hate this!

4.0 out of 5 stars You Really Weren't Expecting A Classic, Were You?! August 19, 2009
The After Dark horror series remains a mixed bag. I haven't seen all of them, but the handful I've seen have been just OK at best. That is until I saw "Nightmare Man".
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Decent Movie.....Until The End August 7, 2014
I usually enjoy most of After Dark Horrorfest's movies. Borderland, Frontier(s), Deaths of Ian Stone, etc, but this may unfortunately have to be an exception.

The opening plot focuses on the main character, Ellen who lives with her husband, William. After Ellen orders an African fertility mask through the mail, she becomes plagued with haunting visions of a demonic supernatural entity named The Nightmare Man, who she believes is after her. Her husband and doctors believe she's paranoid and schizophrenic and give her pills to help control her condition.

As they travel to the mental institution one evening, the car breaks down in the woods and while William goes off in search of help, Ellen stays in the car and that's where The Nightmare Man shows up.

Overall: That's as much as I can give away without telling too much of the movie. In my opinion, Nightmare Man was a decent movie with a decent plot until we get around the last 15 minutes. Seriously, this movie takes such a ridiculous twist during the last 15 minutes, it'll have you shaking your head in disgust and disappointment, laughing at how stupid it is, and almost wishing you never even bothered watching it. The movie had potential to be great but it's ultimately ruined with such a crapola ending that it somewhat ruins the whole movie. The acting isn't all that great either. While I haven't seen every movie made by After Dark Horrorfest; Nightmare Man is probably the worst out of all of them I've seen. Plain and simple; skip Nightmare Man
