Nightmare Cinema Weaves Five Tales of Terror Together at Montreal's Fantasia Film Festival: First Trailer

Nightmare Cinema is an upcoming horror anthology. Slated for a World Premiere at Montreal's Fantasia Film Festival, this anthology weaves several tales together, from directors: Joe Dante (Gremlins), Japanese director Ryûhei Kitamura (The Midnight Meat Train), David Slade (30 Days of Night) and Argentinean director Alejandro Brugués (Juan of the Dead). Each tale is played by a projectionist (Mickey Rourke) to a group of strangers. As well, the tales involve: an exorcism, a descent into clinical madness, a plastic surgery gone wrong and a cabin-in-the-woods slasher feature - with a twist! A close look, at all of these short stories, are available in the film's official trailer - found below!

Nightmare Cinema was a co-production. Taking part in the film's creation include: Cinelou Films, Cranked Up Films, Good Deed Entertainment and Indy Entertainment. Bringing the picture together, Mick Garris ("The Stand") is one of the central co-creators of this production. His work, in the horror world, includes an appearance in 2005's "Masters of Horror" and several films, including the three part television version of The Shining (1997).

The trailer itself shows five strangers entering an old movie theatre. They find their places, only to be shocked by five tales of terror. Each one looks more disturbing than the next. Clips show a fall from a great height. Other characters are covered in blood. And, one man is chased by a strange creature. There is no way out, for these viewers! Fans of horror can get their tickets now, for Fantasia, as Nightmare Cinema is slated to show this July 12th. The trailer awaits past the break.

Release Date: July 12th, 2018 (World Premiere, Montreal).

Directors: Alejandro Brugués, Joe Dante, Mick Garris, Ryûhei Kitamura and David Slade.

Writers: Sandra Becerril, Alejandro Brugués, Lawrence C. Connolly, Mick Garris, Richard Christian Matheson and David Slade.
