Later this year we will see the release of the new horror anthology Nightmare Cinema. The film comes ot us from directors Mick Garris, Joe Dante, David Slade, Ryuhei Kitamura, and Alejandro Brugues and stars Mickey Rourke as The Projectionist.
Today we have word via the MPAA that the horror anthology has been given an R rating for “horror violence/gore, grisly images, language, some sexuality, and brief nude images.” And all of that sounds like good times to me!
Nightmare Cinema will premiere at this year’s Fantasia International Film Festival.
A series of down-on-their-luck individuals enter the decrepit and spine-chilling Rialto theater, only to have their deepest and darkest fears brought to life on the silver screen by The Projectionist – a mysterious, ghostly figure who holds the nightmarish futures of all who attend his screenings. By the time our patrons realize the truth, escape is no longer an option. For once the ticket is torn, their fate is sealed at Nightmare Cinema.
