It's been called "graphic and unapologetic" (SexGoreMutants), "brutally effective" (Screen Rant) and "a forgotten classic" (Horror News). It remains the most reviled, controversial and misunderstood genre film of the '80s. Now "the most repulsive, degrading and horrifying movie ever made" (NY Daily News) can be experienced like never before: When a homicidal mental patient (an enduringly disturbing performance by Baird Stafford) flees an experimental drug program, he'll leave a 5-day trail of psychosexual carnage from the peep shows of 42nd Street to the gore-soaked shores of Florida. Written and directed by Romano Scavolini, this "devastating masterpiece" (Cinefear) - whose UK release as NIGHTMARES IN A DAMAGED BRAIN led to the imprisonment of distributor David Hamilton-Grant - has been scanned from the internegative and various foreign print sources to create the most complete version ever assembled.

    Press Quotes

    The most repulsive, offensive, degrading, gory, depraved and horrifying movie ever made.

         —New York Daily News

    A grim masterpiece of psychotic horror... A bona fide disturbing movie that delivers the grotesque goods. The footage of 42nd Street alone is worth the price of admission.

         —Cool Ass Cinema

    One of those films that you never forget... This is HALLOWEEN with the sleaze factor pushed up to 10. Definitely recommended.

         —Video Junkie

    Sheer brutality... This is straight-up horror, a slasher that does not pull any punches. It stands amongst the best the genre has to offer.

         —The Telltale Mind

    Infamous... Its gore effects are memorable and disturbing. This brutally effective film is truly a part of horror history.

         —Through the Shattered Lens

    A sleaze gem.

         —DVD Drive-In

    A forgotten classic... It's a dark, bleak, brutal movie, and you'll feel like you need to take a shower after you watch it.

         —Horror News

    Essential viewing for fans of '80s horror... It stands as a great fast-paced and unapologetic stalk 'n slash film with loads of raw and graphic violence. Marvelous stuff!

         —SexGoreMutants

    Sleazy, grimy and nasty... The gore is disturbing, depressing and ugly, as it should.

         —The Bloody Pit of Horror

    God, this movie is so, so filthy... Grimy and unhealthy from the opening frames. The kind of film no one would ever believe actually played mainstream theaters in the early '80s.

         —Mondo Digital

    A grimy, gory sleaze-fest... It's overflowing with blood, sex, peep shows, fever dreams and more tricks up its sleeve than it's given credit for.

         —Morbidly Beautiful

    A slasher that every fan should see... Scavolini's alternately sleazy and mature approach makes NIGHTMARE an original in a sea of FRIDAY THE 13TH clones.

         —Classic Horror

    Monumentally sleazy... A veritable St. Vitus Dance of a movie, unlike anything that polite society had ever seen before. It more than lives up to its reputation.

         —Hysteria Lives!

    A brilliant, devastating masterpiece... Head and shoulders above all other slasher films of the era. Baird Stafford's performance is astonishing.

         —Cinefear

    A truly disorienting psychokiller giallo... This gory and demented film would make seriously disturbing viewing for anyone on heavy medication.

         —Movie Gazette

    Still one of the most reviled nasties... Scavolini's gloriously gruesome little number is never anything less than fascinating. There's no question that its infamy is fully justified.

         —Rivers of Grue

    HALLOWEEN crossed with MANIAC... It's a dark, grim piece of work, Scavolini being out to disturb. You'll sure remember it for some time.

         —Horror Cult Films

    Worthless trash... If you see this, you have only yourself to blame

         —Alan Jones, Starburst

    Brutally effective... When Tom Savini has to distance himself from your film, you know you've done something right in the shock department.'

         —Screen Rant

    A pure gore spectacle... It's right alongside MANIAC and NEW YORK RIPPER as slash and sleaze from one of the greasiest eras of horror. Scavolini is out to disturb.

         —Oh, the Horror!
