    FWIW, out of all the crap POS I've bought on ebay, I was always surprised at how much I genuinely liked Nightmare. And that was first viewing and everything, not to mention being a woman who doesn't get off on violence and OTT gore.

    Reviving an old thread FTW!

    I'm sure many of you already know about this, but just in case, some gracious individual (from this forum, maybe?) has taken the time to translate and apply subtitles to the interview with Romano Scavolini from Code Red's Nightmare DVD.

    Part 1:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rnViPTC-ruA&list=FLW606pPDNCOfH6mCGTWO21A&index=1
    Part 2:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYAqmW95Yco
    Part 3:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EwKNxSBg_mc

    I gotta say, it's not what I expected. Not that I'm disappointed, but this interview reveals Romano in a very confusing light. The man is clearly delusional as to Nightmare's success and can't seem to give a straightforward answer to any of the questions. He also claims that the film opened up in 117 theaters in New York City, when it actually opened up in only 50 (still a decent number for a film of this kind).

    I haven't made it all the way through the interview as I found his rambling to actually be rather boring. But I am looking forward to to seeing whether or not he discusses Tom Savini's "involvement" in the special effects.

    I watched the blu-ray last night, and have to agree with Dobby that it doesn't make sense. How did George father a child if he has been institutionalized since he was a kid (assuming he's in there for the double murder of his father and the mistress)? Unless perhaps the mother spent time in the same institution? Wouldn't surprise me, the way she is constantly screaming at her kids for no reason.

    I guess I never really thought about it before and simply took it for what it was, just a fun little slasher flick.

    It's an entertaining trainwreck of a movie that didn't deserve the infamy or cult status it obtained, the saga of Savini and his girlfriend gave it some boost in the Vipco era.

    I was under the assumption that George was institutionalized for later crimes, such as stalking, but not found out about his initial double homicide.

    Also, if he was as a kid, it's possible they released him as a teen, he was still have problems mentally, and they brought him back in for self harm as an adult. Which is why he left his wife and kids in the first place, was his inability to cope with society with a ... damaged brain.
