88 Films continue their ‘slasher collection’ with their latest release FRIGHTMARE. This will be number 38 in the ‘slasher collection’.

Also known as THE HORROR STAR, the 1983 cult creeper FRIGHTMARE offered audiences postmodern shocks long before Wes Craven gave us his game-changing SCREAM in 1996!

An underrated and underseen gem, FRIGHTMARE tells of a celebration for a late, great horror star… only the actor in question might not be entirely dead and soon the participants at his supposed party are being picked off one by one!

Highlighting a notable supporting performance Jeffrey Combs (RE-ANIMATOR) and assured direction from Norman Thaddeus Vane (who also worked on the X-rated cult favourite DRACULA SUCKS), this is one of the most stylish and sublime of all the eighties slice and dice horror-pack and 88 Films is thrilled to present FRIGHTMARE as part of its Slasher Classics collection!
