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.

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.

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!

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.

NIGHTMARE MAN is a nice little chiller w/ several things going for it. 1)- The plot twists, though somewhat predictable, are fun. 2)- the pacing is quick and relatively painless. 3)- Horror goddess almighty, Tiffany Shepis (DELTA DELTA DIE!, BLOODY MURDER 2, THE HAZING, ABOMINABLE, HOME SICK) runs around in her underwear! She's also a good actress I might add. So, if a movie w/ a crazed killer, a strange woman who is either possessed or insane, and Tiffany Shepis sounds interesting, then you can't go wrong w/ NIGHTMARE MAN...

Well, i'm glad it's back up on prime, so i didn't waste money watching this. This wasn't as bad as "Unearthed" (another after dark film).
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?)
