NIGHTMARE CINEMA: Five tales of terror directed by Joe Dante, Mick Garris, David Slade, Alejandro Brugués, Ryûhei Kitamura and starring Mickey Rourke, Annabeth Gish, Richard Chamberlain. In this twisted horror anthology, five strangers are drawn to an abandoned theater and forced to watch their deepest and darkest fears play out before them. Lurking in the shadows is the Projectionist, who preys upon their souls with his collection of disturbing films. As each reel spins its sinister tale, the characters find frightening parallels to their own lives. Be sure to stay for the Q&A with Special Guest MICK GARRIS.
Mick Garris has one of the most impressive writing and directing careers in horror history. He wrote for shows like Amazing Stories, created The Masters of Horror series, and wrote or directed more Stephen King adaptations than any other filmmaker, including THE STAND, SLEEPWALKERS, and RIDING THE BULLET.
