Nightmare Man - com Luciano Szafir


Recommended Posts

None of his principals can act-indeed, Luciano Szafir, a Brazilian,

cannot speak English, although he certainly tries. It is also true that

no one has dialogue worth speaking. Because the film is something of a

"good baddie," we might have forgiven some of its sins were it not for

the ham-fisted, high-decibel score by Christopher Farrell that rises to

a neck-jerking crescendo any time anything vaguely shocking is about to

occur. Rarely in the history of cinema has music called this much

unwanted attention to itself.

Rough around the edges, but it is also frequently funny in its adherence to clichés and does boast an energetic tone.

The plot is derivative, the dialogue cumbersome and cliché-ridden.

...succeeds absolutely at what it aspires to ... it's an amusing little "midnight movie" built mostly out of off-the-rack elements.

Intermittently fun and occasionally witty, with just the right touch of self-awareness.

If there were a 99 Cents Store for movies, cheapo pic -- designed more for lonely male geeks in their teens and above than the date crowd -- would fit nicely on the shelves.

All impenetrably dark nighttime shots, politely telegraphed shocks and limp, transparent misogyny masquerading as genre-savvy hijinks.

A solid, whirlwind of a horror movie, with more twists and turns than a hula hoop competition.
