Adam Nayman Cinema Scope On a formal level, the only thing that really distinguishes Der Nachtmahr is the thermonuclear sound design, which blows up every time the characters enter an underground night club. Sep 28, 2017 Full Review Kathy Fennessy The Stranger (Seattle, WA) As the tiny monster becomes more visible, though, it also becomes more sympathetic. Dec 1, 2017 Full Review Amanda Waltz The Film Stage It's better to just accept the film for the bizarre curiosity that it is rather than examine its intentions. Rated: B Feb 20, 2016 Full Review Luke Y. Thompson The Robot's Voice Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to have been a lot of thought put into things beyond, "E.T., but scary and German" Nov 14, 2015 Full Review Jon Lyus HeyUGuys Mac and Me directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, and it's exactly as good as that sounds. Rated: 2/5 Oct 2, 2015 Full Review Jennie Kermode Eye for Film Akiz has crafted a film which may fall down a little when it comes to special effects but which soars in its depiction of life on the brink.

Audience Member aburridora, lo único bueno fue la música. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member VIFF Review: "Der Nachtmahr(The Nightmare)" is not as terrifying as it sounds, yet, it has some creepy scenes, a unique premise, and an incredible style and soundtrack. This is a strobe heavy, bass pumping, loud and colourful flick that lands some of it's ideas while missing other opportunities that could have made this film a great one. It's less a Horror film and more a coming of age teenage drama about the struggle of being accepted amongst your peers, but with a unique twist. It's somewhat strange, it looks incredible, and it's loud, but the party stops there. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews
