New Reviews

"Brisk and colorful... [Writer Joseph] Maddrey's narration [is] sonorously voiced by genre fave Lance Henriksen... The various helmers and other commenters prove invariably entertaining... This slick doc [is] sure to become a broadcast staple each Halloween." - Variety

"This is, without question, the most in-depth and well researched documentary on the history of the American horror genre ever made... A must-see for all horror fans." - Philadelphia Horror Examiner

"Combines spectacular film clips along with intelligent interviews... Nightmares in Red, White and Blue delivers the buckets of blood and entrails with what amounts to exceptional insight into the genre." - Film Pig

"A first rate feature-length documentary... told from the perspective of some of the greatest horror filmmakers. Not only will you be entertained with great interviews and sharp editing, but you will be quite impressed by [director Andrew] Monument’s ability to bring a unique perspective on why society continuously craves horror and violence." - On Demand Weekly

"NIGHTMARES IN RED, WHITE, AND BLUE admirably distills some of the most salient interpretations from academia's analyses of horror into concepts even the most detached genre fan will find intriguing... [It] serves as a great springboard, not just for fans hungry for new titles to unearth, but for fans who find themselves intrigued by the historical lens through which the horror genre becomes even more vibrant and important." - Movies Make Good

"Thoughtfully and carefully considered... Documentaries like this, of which this one is far better than most, are fun because they remind us of films we may have long forgotten about and how really great the classics are. And if they're really good, they leave us with a list of movies we have to see again or watch for the first time. I made a list of more than fifteen films I need to review or watch for the first time based on clips or comments in the movie. That's time well-spent." - A Beast in the Jungle

"I am sure that taking on the task of having such a comprehensive topic covered in just 96 minutes and have it be informative couldn’t have been easy. Surprisingly though, the film breezes through the decades without ever feeling rushed. It makes a pretty convincing argument as to why horror films – no matter how ridiculous some of them are - should not just be written off as a lower class of genre movie making." - Filmbalaya

"I took a class on the horror film in college and Nightmares is very much a condensed but equally insightful version of that information, for thousands of dollars less in tuition." - SF Horror Movie Examiner

"[It's] a Ken Burns history lesson on Horror Movies." - IMDB reviewer
