The son of a powerful entrepreneur receives a post from his sister,pleading for him to rescue her from an unspecified danger. With onlythe letter's return address as a lead, he begins a dot-to-dot descentinto the seedy urban underbelly, gathering bits of information from onesleazy miscreant after an...
I agree with the earlier "user comment" that described this film as a"Canadian Giallo." Having recently watched a number of Italian Giallosfrom the 1970s and 1960s, I find many of the characteristics of thisfilm match up neatly with those of traditional giallos. (In particular,I can think of a numbe...
Wealthy pianist Eric Blade (Lawrence Day) tries to locate his missingrunaway sister in an unnamed (and presumably US) metropolis. Hisjourney takes him to seedy sex shops and strip joints. Of course, thepolice (include a detective played by one "Mike" Ironside) aren'treally interested in a missing ho...
The fact that this one isn't easy to catch over here I was able to findme a copy. I thought it would be so creepy as Visiting Hours 'causeIronside was involved, but he just plays a copper and nothing more. Isit scary, sometimes it has his moments but overall it's more aboutnaked girls. But here the ...
Despite what the title states, the movie actually takes place in Toronto.Though like most Canadian movies, it is hesitant to say where it's actuallytaking place - you have to look for clues, such as seeing part of the CNTower in the background during the final sequence.As for the movie itself, it's ...
While the 1981 slasher film AMERICAN NIGHTMARE is not a classic by anymeans, it stands out from most of its contemporaries. This is because itseems to be much more influenced by the Italian "giallo" films(mystery-thrillers featuring flashy gore sequences) than by theteen-oriented slasher films which...
One has to wonder why the makers of this film would dub it "AmericanNightmare" when in fact it's 100% Canadian, showing that those of us inthe Great White North have what it takes to make dark and depressingtrash cinema. The story is admittedly similar to that in the George C.Scott vehicle "Hardcore...
American Nightmare is a very unusual movie. It's not like your usualslasher where it's some guy in a mask killing a bunch of high schoolkids. But the movie plays out kind of like a slasher. This is sort of across over between a slasher and a mystery. A young girl goes missingand her older brother st...
A pianist is searching for his sister who has become a prostitute.Asadistic killer is preying on prostitutes.He kills his victims with arazor.Police hunt for the girl and the killer."American Nightmare" byDon McBrearty is a Canadian giallo with some slasher elements.The lookof the film is dirty and ...
Most of the other reviews of this are pretty much spot on. This moviedoes have elements of the Italian giallo, but it is much more grittyand realistic than the garish and stylized gialli. It also resemblesAmerica slasher movies (many of which, like this movie, were actuallyCanadian tax shelter produ...
Quite a fantastic little film, which revolves around the brutalkillings of seemingly random victims, mainly prostitutes. It's hardlybelievable that a well to do, caring older brother would let his sisterget into this much trouble, but in the end it becomes obvious whythings turned out that way. Is i...
This movie "American Nightmare" is one of the countless early 80's Bthriller films that involves murder and sex mixed in to make it awatch. Something to watch to pass a little time anyway it's a note thatPage Fletcher has a guest spot here this was just before he got hismost memorable role on HBO's ...
"American Nightmare" is one of the better eighties slashers out there,featuring a funny, enjoyable cast, good suspense, and a fun, if notpredictable take on the generic stalk-and-slash scenario. After thedisappearance of a young girl (played by a young Alexandra Paul), thegirl'sbrother (Day) comes ...
This relentlessly seedy and downbeat Canadian "Hardcore" clone largelyeschews the heavy-handed moralizing of Paul Schrader's spectacularlylurid '79 feature in favor of wallowing with unstinting graphicness ina festering stinkweed urban cesspool of raw sexuality and total sleaze.A naive, clean-cut yo...
I thought this would suck because of the feel of the movie when it firststarted but it turned out a watchable movie. I think the writer wanted toadd something that would hold the watchers attention & that was the lovestory happening between the Eric & Louise characters. It's not real scarybut a good...
