Trivia

One of several off-set incidents involving Wings Hauser included a dispute between Hauser himself and his brother at his motel room, to the point that Hauser literally drove his brother's head through the motel room's dry wall. The incident ended with Wings being arrested and Mastorakis and some of the crew had to bail him out. See more »

This is a B movie ..........
21 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Nightmare at Noon" is a very uneasy mixture of high tech sci-fi and standard western shoot em up. Brion James is visually impressive as the albino mute villain, but that's about it. Bo Hopkins and Wings Hauser act like they are in a mismatched buddy cop movie, while George Kennedy plays the local sheriff. There is some dark humor that slightly elevates things, but overall this is simply a B movie. Lots of green goo, gratuitous big explosions, nice scenery, a great number of "F" bombs, and a goes on forever helicopter battle, which incidentally seems like it belongs in a completely different film. Not totally bad, but not even borderline good. - MERK
