Some of the artwork that graced the covers of VHS tapes back in the 80’s haunt me still. I would spend literally hours roaming the racks at the video stores and have seen some of this artwork thousands of times. Such is the case with ‘Nightmares’. I really don’t remember much about the film other than the fact that it is an anthology and of course – that damn artwork.
The reason we are talking about this now is that Scream Factory has decided to give us all a little Christmas gift and roll out their Blu-ray of ‘Nightmares’ so all the horror fans stockings can be stuffed with fear.
Story wise – here’s what ‘Nightmares’ is all about:
“A pack of cigarettes, a video game, a pick-up truck and a stately colonial home all become key elements in four terrifying tales of terror in the anthology film, Nightmares, directed by Joseph Sargent (THE TAKING OF PELHAM ONE TWO THREE, WHITE LIGHTNING).”
Cristina Raines, Emilio Estevez,, Lance Henriksen, Veronica Cartwright, and Richard Masur all lend their talents to these four tales of terror. Special feature wise we can look for an audio commentary with the films executive producer Andrew Mirisch and the films star actress Cristina Raines.
