A very fun indie Horror
16 February 2017 | by robert-461See all my reviews

Armand Petri's Reel Nightmare is a very well produced independent horror with the acting, camera, lighting and sound design one would expect of a main-stream Hollywood film. The film is a seamless high-bred of found footage with traditional narrative but with Reel Nightmare, the found footage is not ever part of the actual visual presentation but rather an ecstatic theme driven by the scene structure, in other words, no shaking camera or armature looking footage. Though all performances were compelling , I especially liked the portrayal of Sofia by Madeleine Heil who offers a first rate delivery. The film provides a few laughs, plenty of scares and a very cool surprise ending. I hope to see more from this production team!
