Customer Reviews

This was not your run of the mill splatterfest.
All said, I can strongly recommend this DVD to any fan of '80s slasher films.

Now that I've had the DVD for a year, I can say the wait was well worth it.

Code Red has done a spectacular job with this sleazy horror film. First off it is a two disc set. This release contains THREE versions of the film
Disc one has a HiDef Master 1:78 16 x 9 cut (this was a good print) and a full frame color corrected cut of the movie (this isnt too good)
while disc 2 has a brand new 2011 telecine 1:78:1 16 x 9 transfer which is the best of the bunch. Disc 2 is labeled DVDr - but rest assured it is's a little Code Red joke..
Bonus features include Audio Commentary with make up artist Cleve Hall and Baird Stafford, an uncensored 95min Italian interview from Romano Scavolini in Italian Language ( no subtitles ) , "Making of a Nightmare" interview with Baird Stafford, Cleve Hall and Tom Ward, "New York Nightmare" interview with Edward French ( special effects artist) 2 different Nightmare trailers, Code Red trailers...
The movie itself is about an adult who keeps having Nightmares about his childhood,his past, leading to his murderous self in the present. It's gory, perverse, sleazy , just the way gore lovers like it..
I will not say too much about scenes and spoil any characters it other than there is a gratuitous amount of splatter gore, nudity, an unforgettable scene with a lady and her *toy*. To answer some questions, their is a head chopping blood spurting scene, a stabbing scene, a woman tied up being eaten by rats, gunfire gore, foaming at the mouth. A ladies' head surrounded by bloody insides, liver, stomach...
At times the film's plot is a little incoherent, hard to follow but if you stick with it like I did,as a first time viewer, you will be rewarded with a sleazy horror gem that is highly compelling.
None of the actors will win academy awards but it was at least credible for a film such as this..
This film isnt for everyone , but if you like movies like Maniac, Rituals, gore, fans of independent genre films this is highly recommended
Good show Code Red !

Long derided by elitist and stately horror critics, but much loved by the Exploitation/Slasher/Gore crowd, the notorious Video Nasty "NIGHTMARE" has finally been bestowed upon us by the fine folks at Code Red! Grim, dark, and featuring the most shocking decapitation scene you will ever see, "NIGHTMARE" is perfect for fans of films such as "MANIAC", "DON'T GO IN THE HOUSE", and "PIECES". Lead actor Baird Stafford gives a sulking and menacing portrayal of a man overcome with mental illness, and there is a pervasively downbeat vibe to this film that is hard to shake.

This release is packaged beautifully! The original theatrical artwork with a strikingly lurid color scheme sets the tone before you even begin viewing. For extras we have a commentary track with Baird Stafford, and FX man Cleve Hall. This commentary track is very informative. Stafford has a razor sharp recollection of many facets of the shoot. I found this a very enjoyable listen. Then we have the "MAKING OF A NIGHTMARE" interview segment with Stafford, Hall, and Tom Ward. And, as an extra bonus, the "NEW YORK NIGHTMARE" interview segment with veteran makeup man Ed French! I was ecstatic to see him included as he also worked on another favorite of mine- "BLOOD RAGE". Sadly, this interview is rather short, and French seems far more interested in pointing out his extensive resume of Emmy nominations, blah, blah. Still a nice little extra, regardless. There is also a 95 minute interview with director Romano Scavolini, but it is in Italian with no subtitles. I am hoping that if this DVD release sells well enough, perhaps one day we might get a BluRay release with the interview subtitled.

Oh, and so there is no confusion, all copies are 2 DISC sets with three separate transfers.

In the years since Program Power and then BCI acquired the rights to this film / did nothing with them / dissolved & passed the buck to Code Red I have managed to get married, live overseas, and have children... Yes, this DVD really has been a long time coming - at least 7-10yrs... hence my anticipation for this - my favourite non-giallo slasher - was high, and understandably that's a tall order for any long awaited DVD to live up to. Especially a Code Red one.

I remember the days of film fairs in sports halls where, with the right nods and winks, you'd get to see a hand written sheet of A4 with scribbled titles of notorious horror films bootlegged onto VHS - that's how I first saw Nightmare 20yrs ago, so I'm well accustomed to viewing grainy, scratchy, washed out / too dark, badly registered renditions of old horror films, but even so I was quite appalled by the quality of the prints in this DVD set.

Code Red did at one point explain at some length how every print they'd sourced had serious damage and degradation, and the dreadful state of the source material really goes show on the Disc 1 prints - scratches, dirt, dust, corrosion, jumps & sound issues aplenty. Also - the informaton relating to the 4:3 has been massaged somewhat. I had written correspondence with Scavolini myself and he confirmed that the 2005 transfer was done without his knowledge or participation,- indeed Code Red hadn't even approached him at that point and he refuted point blank Code Red's original assertion that Nightmare was filmed for fullscreen presentation only. Scavolini was subsequently brought on board when CR became desparate over source print quality and he DID approve the cut [i.e.
