Scream Factory Unleashing Classic Horror Anthology NIGHTMARES This December!

sflogoWhen it comes to horror anthologies, there are very few classics that filled my childhood with dread and entertainment as much as CREEPSHOW and NIGHTMARES did. While the former has a Bluray release already and it’s been a regular staple in my household, the latter, a four-tale anthology directed by Joseph Sargent (The Taking Of Pelham One Two Three, White Lightning..and we’ll forgive him for JAWS: THE REVENGE someday) is easily one of the greats, with an early performance from Emilio Estevez, THE SENTINEL‘s Christina Raines starring in my favorite of the stories and a few others as well. Thanks to the gang at Scream Factory, we’ll have a brand new HD release of the fun as hell film, when they unleash NIGHTMARES on Bluray this December 22nd. Will you fright fanatics be picking this one up?

In Nightmares, a pack of cigarettes, a video game, a pick-up truck and a stately colonial home all become key elements in four petrifying tales of terror in the anthology film directed by Joseph Sargent (The Taking Of Pelham One Two Three, White Lightning).

A chain-smoking homemaker (Cristina Raines, The Sentinel) insists on going out for cigarettes even when an escaped madman is on the loose in “Terror in Topanga.”

Then,  J.J. Cooney (Emilio Estevez, Young Guns), a video game hot-shot, dares to take on a strange challenger – though it may cost him his life – in “The Bishop of Battle.”

A troubled priest (Lance Henriksen, Aliens) seeks to find the faith he has lost on the road, but instead he finds that someone (or something) in this desert is trying to drive him out of his mind in “The Benediction.”

Claire (Veronica Cartwright – Alien) hears rats in the walls. Her husband (Richard Masur – The Thing) believes he can take care of the problem with a few rat traps, but this problem is only going to get much bigger in “Night of the Rat.”
