Nightmare (1964) **1/2

NIGHTMARE (1964)

A third entry in Hammer Films' psychotic mystery series, this wasn't quite as satisfying as PARANOIAC or SCREAM OF FEAR, but it was still pretty good. A young woman (Jennie Linden) is at a girl's school suffering from horrid nightmares about her insane mother, so she is sent home to work out her problems under the care of a nurse, where the horror continues. Some chilling goings-on, and I really liked the performance of Moira Redmond as the caregiver working things out with Linden. She's got some wild interplay with her husband in the film (played by David Knight) that's fun to watch. **1/2 out of ****
