NIGHTMARE MAN
 

After receiving a mysterious demonic African
mask in the mail, ELLEN MORRIS is attacked by
a "being" she refers to as THE NIGHTMARE MAN.
Her doctors and husband, William believe Ellen is
a paranoid schizophrenic and needs to spend
some quality time at a mental facility for further
examination.

On the way to the hospital, their car runs out of gas. William walks to the nearest gas station as Ellen waits in the car watching the sunset. Alone once again, Ellen is attacked by the mysterious Nightmare Man. She manages to flee into the nearby woods... but is this man/demon real or is it all in Ellen's mind?

Running for her life, Ellen stumbles upon a country house where two young couples are vacationing for the weekend. She barely escapes the Nightmare Man by running into their house, claiming there's a killer outside! The couples are suspicious and wary, and contact William on his cell phone. He warns them of Ellen's condition and tells them to be careful. "She may be dangerous to herself and others."

The couples are now faced with some major questions. Is the threat outside, or is it already inside with them? Is Ellen telling the truth or is she a potential killer?


Is the killer a man, woman, or something supernatural..?

And then the real terror begins!


NIGHTMARE MAN -- a surprising horror thriller that keeps you guessing until the very end. When the sun goes down, HE comes out to play!

There is no escaping the NIGHTMARE MAN.

WATCH THE TRAILER:

A demonic brain-bender... NIGHTMARE MAN exhibits the expected amount of bare flesh, but it also showcases an actress (TIFFANY SHEPIS) who has matured significantly over the last decade."

--Ryan Turek, Fangoria Magazine

...A brilliant gem of independent horror... The film had barely any budget but was more entertaining than any major studio scary film release I've seen this year. It's genuinely spooky, pretty hilarious and even has Richard Moll of Night Court  fame. Imagine a cross between the Evil Dead  and a Halloween episode of The O.C."

--Jane Magazine

“There are few times when a new horror film just utterly takes me by surprise, but such is the case with director Rolfe Kanefsky's latest film, NIGHTMARE MAN. Don't get me wrong, as I have come to expect solid B-movie style outings from Kanefsky. Over the years, he has written and directed many underrated and highly entertaining schlock films and horror parodies. However, with his latest piece of work, Kanefsky plays less for laughs and more for style, and the reward is one great, stylized and effective low-budget romp that puts most studio films to shame. Tiffany Shepis turns in an amazing performance. Stylish and trashy in gloriously equal parts, NIGHTMARE MAN  is Kanefsky's best work to date. He once again displays his trademark knack for witty dialogue, believable characters and parody of horror cliches. Kanefsky creates a film that delivers something new for a generation brought up on remakes and prequels- it's called orginality and style. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"

"Move over Michael Myers… NIGHTMARE MAN is a b-horror adrenaline shot! Serves up a tense, nail biter and accomplishes on a low budget what most struggle to scratch the surface of with millions!… Rolfe Kanefsky, director of THE HAZING, has definitely struck gold a second time with NIGHTMARE MAN! Tiffany Shepis turned in a phenomenal performance… by far, her best yet. Let’s hope NIGHTMARE MAN sees the release it deserves! Let’s make some noise for this film."
