There are at least four different version of this film released: SATAN'S SUPPER -- Academy Films VHS, 82 minutes 20 seconds, very grainy and pallid looking transfer. Missing all of the footage showing them going to, and then in, Las Vegas at the nightclub. Video wipe title SATAN'S SUPPER before the film begins. Stated runtime: 94 minutes. SHIVER -- Brentwood/BCI DVD from the "Tales From The Boneyard" 4 Disc Set, 86 minutes 47 seconds, shows them at the nightclub in Las Vegas but missing the scene where they are in the car on the way there. Re-title SHIVER inserted during the first dream sequence with a lazy edit, which jumps right to the nightclub act. Stated runtime: "Approx. 94 minutes". THE NIGHTMARE NEVER ENDS -- Mill Creek DVD from the "Nightmare Worlds" 50 Movie pack, 87 minutes 50 seconds , has all of the footage in the car and at the nightclub in Las Vegas. What looks like an in-print title of THE NIGHTMARE NEVER ENDS before the film starts. Stated runtime: 88 minutes. THE NIGHTMARE NEVER ENDS -- Premier Entertainment International VHS, 82 minutes 26 seconds, appears to be an identical transfer as the SATAN'S SUPPER tape (or vice-versa) though the picture and sound quality of this one is noticeably better and the color is much better than either of the two DVD versions described above. Missing all of the footage involving Las Vegas. Re-title card still of THE NIGHTMARE NEVER ENDS before film starts. Stated runtime: 94 minutes. An edited version was used as an episode for the horror anthology . See more »
This film has good intentions. There is something lacking, but I't hard to put one's finger on it. This tells the tale of a Satanic figure who passes through time by recreating himself. An Nobel author, played by Richard Moll, Bull from "Night Court" of all people, has written a kind of Scientology book about God being dead. It has received much attention and he becomes of interest to the Satanic figure. The movie starts out with a Nazi hunter engaging the police to help him capture the man who was responsible for the deaths of his family members during the Holocaust. The thing that is always in the way is that if Satan is so powerful, why does he need to do much of anything. If there are people who threaten him (which they obviously can't), why doesn't he just kill them outright. I know he is searching for souls and all that, but his invulnerability makes him relatively uninteresting in this film. He does some things that don't make much sense in the world of the film. The ending is kind of fun, I guess.
