The Nightmare

Published On August 6, 2012 | By Joe Gordon | Film TV & Theatre

Ah, what better way to start a new working weekend than by delving into a surrealist, disturbing series of sequences? Joseph Christiana‘s The Nightmare is a very intriguing, well executed short horror-fantasy film that uses its brief running time well to weave a series of odd, surreal, nightmare sequences together as a young boy is pursued by … something … Stick with it to the end – there’s effective dream-logic sequences that disturb nicely, some good horror-fantasy imagery and excellent use of sound right from the start, leading up to a satisfying climax, a very effective piece of short film craft. You can check out more on Joseph’s website with links to other works, interviews and film podcasts he takes part in.
