Featuring segments directed by Mick Garris, Joe Dante, David Slade, Ryuhei Kitamura and Alejandro Brugues, the horror anthology Nightmare Cinema (read our review) is essentially a low-key reboot of the “Masters of Horror” television series, and it’s a damn good time. It’s also loaded with gory practical effects, particularly in the standout opening segment.
Brugues crafts a gory slasher with a fun twist, Dante channels the spirit of Tales from the Crypt and Slade brings to the table a black & white nightmare that’d make David Lynch proud.
It’s all brought together with a wraparound segment featuring Mickey Rourke!

In Nightmare Cinema, “A series of down-on-their-luck individuals enter the decrepit and spine-chilling Rialto theater, only to have their deepest and darkest fears brought to life on the silver screen by The Projectionist – a mysterious, ghostly figure who holds the nightmarish futures of all who attend his screenings. By the time our patrons realize the truth, escape is no longer an option. For once the ticket is torn, their fate is sealed at Nightmare Cinema.”
