The killer is based on a real-life female serial killer named Jane Toppan (1857-1938) a Boston-born nurse whom murdered at least 30 people (mostly hospital patients) in the New England area from the mid-1880s to 1901. See more »
In most circumstances, a caller must turn his/her radio off when talking to the host of a radio show on air. It causes interference on the radio when the radio is turned on. See more »
This is one of a very few movies where the acting was so believable that I was scared. The serial killer listens to fear confessions on a radio talk show and then fulfills their fears!
The acting made this movie! Where other horror movies rely on makeup or special effects to create scary scenes, the acting especially by the lead who played the serial killer made me afraid! American Nightmare is a perfect example of how you don't need special effects to create a scary movie, just great actors and a great story!
