Nightmare Cinema (2019)



Critic Consensus: Admirably eclectic yet more consistent than most horror anthologies, Nightmare Cinema should entertain viewers in the mood for a good old-fashioned creepshow.

Overall, "Nightmare Cinema" is more stomach-turning than truly frightening, but thanks to the obvious love and care put into it, it's worth seeing.

Nightmare Cinema as a whole is the bloodiest, most violent, most gruesome and most twisted movie I've seen this year. And I mean that mostly in a good way.

[A] scattered but amusing horror anthology that gives five directors a whack at telling short, contained tales of terror, "Creepshow"-style.

Nightmare Cinema starts with a bang, as Brugués drops us into a fun, clever, gory little ride. I was excited for the four installments to follow. I got less and less excited.

The whole is certainly diverse, lively and reference-packed enough to please horror fans attracted to this kind of enterprise...

The best of the bunch start out unassumingly, then suddenly rip the scales from viewers' eyes - along with any attached hair and skin.
