When it comes to horror movies, I know lots of stuff but I’ve never claimed to be cutting edge. That’s usually because I’m so busy mining the past and revelling in vintage terror trends that I often miss the current product when it first sees the light of the projector beam or small screen. But that’s okay. To paraphrase Charles Foster Kane, they’ve been making horror films for over 100 years and I’ve only been watching for 30.

So forgive the fact that in 2009, I’m only now getting around to raving about a blood spattered modern day surrealist shocker that was lensed in 2005. That film is Nightmare directed by Dylan Bank and co-written by Morgan Pehme and Bank and man alive is it aboslutely insane, sleazy, unnerving, bizarre and boldly berserk. In other words, my kind of horror film. Cerebral yet utterly, proudly trashy. Yum. »
