This is not just a great horror anthology film, and not just, arguably, the best of the year, but one of the most notable of the decade. For once, we get consistancy and uniformity, regardless of the fact that five horror masters are directing, each with their background and style. These guys are monuments. They’re Alejandro Brugués, Joe Dante, Ryūhei Kitamura, David Slade, and Mick Garris.
Making Mickey Rourke the Crypt Keeper was clever. The wraparound segment is cool but underdone. “The Thing in the Woods”, first short, was amazing. Joe Dante’s story was impeccable. Can’t say that I cared for Kitamura’s story, though. We’ve seen this in, like... 2002. David Slade went places I didn’t expect, and, last but not least, Mick Garris topped it all off with a captivating ghost story.
These are self-contained stories. They’re what horror anthologies initially were. There are no vampires or werewolves, here. We’re talking demonology, mad doctors, and spiders. Nightmare Cinema isn’t as marketable as Creepshow was, but it’s entertaining, nonetheless. The actors range from excellent to amazing, and they made me feel like I was right there with them.
