Horrorfest 2019 Presents: Der Nachtmahr (2015, Achim Bornhak)


Look I get that Der Nachtmahr is a feminist allegory sporting a rather obvious metaphor for growing up, and quite possible one that is even pregnancy related. However I just couldn’t buy into this movie at all, and I was left frustrated and disappointed. In fact I am not even sure this qualifies as a horror movie aside from some decently eerie moments involving the creature that the protagonist ends up bounding with. I did like the creature effects so this film was not a complete waste, and the ending was okay I guess but this just doesn’t work as a full length movie. Perhaps as a short film it would have been more effective. I don’t know and I don’t really care. Skip this and watch something better.
