NIGHTMARE ALLEY plays of as trying to be like a TALES FROM THE CRYPT or CREEPSHOW type movie. There is a ghoulish host (that reminds me of a lot of the Horror hosts that hosted late night Horror shows on cable) that takes you through all seven of the tales told in the film. This is a very low budget Horror film which seems to have been shot on a very tight budget. "A Fistful Of Innards" follows some Zombie cowboys who rampage across the prairie. (This is one of the better of the stories). In "Rebellion" a satanic evil rat forces a man to commit murder for him. This was sort of a reversal on the film BEN or WILLARD, where a man trains rats to kill for him. In "Death Chat" a loser sets up a date over the Internet with a vengeful ax wielding ghost? "Meat" is about a woman who kills off her abusive husband and then feeds his remains to a fat slob who lives in the neighborhood. "Closet Case" finds a homophobic Punk dude killing off a gay guy. In "The Great Damone" an artists kills off his spouse and uses her body for his next art project. A Jack The Ripper style killer goes on a killing spree in "Slash Of The Blade". Most of these stories were done very poorly and weren't that scary or gory, but these were done on a very low budget, as most BRAIN DAMAGE films are, so I wasn't expecting too much going in. Die hard Horror fans that will watch just about anything will find some enjoyment in this, but most run of the mill Horror fans will find it hard to get through this entire film.
