Nightmares (Stage Fright)

5299-poster

On DVD June 28, 2011: From John Lamond, the infamous producer/director of Felicity, Australia After Dark and ABC of Love and Sex comes this depraved mélange of sex, murder and psychotic mayhem. Jenny Neumann of Hell Night and Mistress of the Apes fame stars as a frigid young theater actress traumatized by her mother s horrific death years earlier. But when a series of brutal stabbings rocks her latest production, the drama queen prone to bloody hallucinations fears that she herself may be the killer. Are all actresses genuinely insane or is the stage set for a shocking final twist? Max Phipps (The Road Warrior) and Gary Sweet (The Chronicles of Narnia, Voyage of the Dawn Treader) co-star in the graphic Ozploitation giallo also known as STAGE FRIGHT, now fully restored from the original Australian vault elements.

    Probably Australia’s first slasher movie and it’s a decent one. The story is weak and there are many slow and uninteresting scenes. Yet, the cast is pretty ok, the dialogue is often hilariously great, there’s plenty of atmosphere, the theater settings look wonderful and the kills are all brilliant.
    (I’m not sure but it looks like this movie could have influenced similar slashers like “Stage Fright” and “Curtains”)
