More Movie Taglines:
- Worse than your most shocking nightmare!
- Dare you see the film that shocked the critics?
- Far beyond a nightmare
- What terrifying craving made her kill... and kill... and kill...
- The film that the hero and heroine go to see on their date is La grande bouffe (1973), which deals with characters who set out to eat themselves to death - a touch of ironic humor in view of the plot of "Frightmare." However, the dialogue we hear is not from "La Grande Bouffe but from Pete Walker's previous film, House of Whipcord (1974).
The final film of Rupert Davies.
The final English-language film of Leo Genn.
