Frank Nolan and Fay Peronivic find themselves in a mysterious all-night café following a brush with death, but they soon learn that they did, in fact, die, and have been brought back to life by the café. Frank and Fay are given the opportunity to correct something in their lives that went wrong the first time, and upon their success, they stay on as the café's new cook and waitress. With the aid of Blackie, the enigmatic owner of the café, Frank and Fay find themselves dispensing hot coffee, daily specials, justice, and second chances to the many imperiled and troubled souls that the café is somehow able to attract, as it travels from place to place.Written by

This is one of the most awesome, underrated shows, from the great Wes Craven. Starring Robert Englund, Lindsay Frost, and Jack Coleman, and many guest stars, it is a great sci-fi/horror series from 1992. Please sign this online petition I made and we can have Nightmare Café on DVD! Also, please spread the word around too if you could. Here is the website link: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/nightmare-cafe-on-DVD-petition This is one of the best hidden gems from the early 90's and one I remember vividly. Right now, there are only fan made sets of the whole show available, VHS quality, recorded in 1992. If we get this released on standard definition DVD, I would be 100% satisfied. Again, please try to spread the word around if you can, thanks for reading my post!
