Nightmare Cinema is a nice, but not outstanding anthology. I enjoyed watching it, but most of the segments are a little too straightforward to really made me love them. That being said, if you’re looking for something along classic lines, Nightmare Cinema will satisfy your itch.

Plot: Todd (Rod Hernandez) and Sara (Alexa Yeames) are carpooling with Jodi (Kelly Connaire), Keren (Stephanie Pearson), Jeff (Jason Tobias) and Eric (Anthony Kirlew). They barely know each other, but they are headed in the same direction and gas is expensive. Their trip comes to an abrupt stop when they blow a tire in the middle of nowhere. But that turns out to be the least of their problems: as they start changing the tire, somebody starts shooting at them – and there’s nowhere to hide.
Downrange was the best film of that particular festival evening. It’s not great, but it’s solid and doesn’t have a single boring second.
