Shortly after the corpse is stolen, a cane is moved over the corpse, and you can very clearly see eyelids twitch on the actor who is playing dead. It is so obvious, that it made at one viewer think the "corpse" is alive, or coming back to life. See more »
Conrad, a legendary star of classic horror films, is a narcissistic killer as monstrous in life as he is on the screen. Shortly following his death, a group of young cinemaphiles steal his corpse, prompting his devoted widow to enlist the aid of a soothsayer in retrieving the evil actor's damned soul from the fire-pits of Hell. Once reunited with his body, Conrad proceeds to wreak bloody vengeance against the young graverobbers.
FRIGHTMARE is a largely miscarried and routine supernatural slasher with atrocious editing and exanimate characters. To the film's credit, however, it does manage to serve up sporadic atmospheric moments which are effectively punctuated by the contra-distinct, multilayered sound editing of creepy, susurrus echos.
A prescriptive and nonessential 80s chiller overall, but might suffice as a tolerable time-filler when nothing better is at hand.
