Creepy Fun, 14 June 2000
7/10

This is NOT the concert film "Welcome To My Nightmare," but rather a prime-time special from 1975. "The Nightmare" is sort of a revue of the songs from the popular "Welcome To My Nightmare" album within the loose framework of Steven (Alice Cooper) being taken on a tour of his nightmares by The Master Of The Nightmare (Vincent Price).

"The Nightmare" lacks the strong, cohesive plot of "Tommy," "Jesus Christ Superstar," "Hair," and other rock musicals, and some of the "monsters" look cheesy and dated in this day and age, but it's still a lot of creepy fun, like an EC Horror comic book set to music. Linda Googh is frighteningly sexy as Steven's necrophile lover, Cold Ethyl. Perfect for rainy autumn afternoons.
