Nightmare (2009) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
As the professor within this film states there is a âlack of visual dynamismâ going on. That is a true understatement to this âNightmareâ. While the film was an excruciating one hour and 40 minutes to watch, the concept was intriguing but poorly executed. An extra star goes to the director, Dylan Bank, for the effort co-writing the story.
The movie starts off already disengaging its viewer with subpar dialogue and ends off distancing them even more with a conclusion that seemed stolen from another movie. It centers around a film student, whose name is already forgotten, trying to direct a horror movie for his class. Throughout the whole movie we follow him around aimlessly it seems with no story or point to it. He sleeps with a hot chick and wakes up with her the next morning. They in turn start watching a video they supposedly made together. Soon they realize they are watching themselves commit murders they have no recollection of committing. That was as interesting of a story as it got. The rest of the movie drags on not allowing its viewers to feel or care for any of its characters. Thereâs lots of perverse nudity, sex, blood, and stuff that donât make much sense/alternate realities/nightmare conundrums. Then thereâs the movie the main characterâs directing that pretty much repeats all of this all over again!
The end doesnât lead the viewer any closer to a real conclusion. There are a few twists in the story here and there but none of which are good or leads to the actual ending that occurs. Perhaps that was the point from the director? Who knows or cares at this point though? Itâs just a confusing mess, sorry to say.
