Trivia

Although he didn't work on this film, New York photographer Craig Hamrick contributed a photo used on the "Nikos" poster. One of the publicity stills Hamrick shot for "And Then They Were Dead" (of a nude Darian Caine in a shower) is part of the montage/mixed-media "Nikos" poster image. The connection? Both movies were produced by Joe Zaso (Producer of "And Then..." and Line Producer of "Nikos'), and Caine appears in both. See more »

crappy acting...crappy killing...crappy filming...crappy music...crappy everything
16 November 2003 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

Wow, I'm rather amazed I've seen a lot of bad horror movies in my life, but this one is probably the worst yet. I haven't seen any of Andreas Schnaas' other movie, but from what I've read this is his best movie. So I might just have to see the rest to see if it's really possible to make anything worse then this one. The acting was crappy, not really the biggest surprise this is after all a low-budget B-movie. But usually B-movie know how to make fun/interesting killing. This is not the case in Nikos. Basically Nikos is just a crappy Jason-clone who walks around killing people with his big-ass broadsword. and that's all he does! A guy walking around killing people with a big sword can actually make a decent movie, if the killer does it in new and interesting ways. Nikos doesn't do that, he just lobs of people's heads (with a few exceptions not may though).

I wouldn't recommend this money to my worst enemy, no one should be made to watch this movie, it's simply too crappy.
