Nightmare Cafe (1992)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger

Nightmare Cafe (1992) The six episodes of this television series are an uneven mix of horror, comedy and sci-fi. In the first episode we're introduced to Fay Peronovic (Lindsay Frost), who jumps into a bay after she catches her boyfriend with another woman. Frank Nolan (Jack Coleman, HRG on HEROES) appears, also in the ocean, and ends up saving her. They climb out of the water and into a nearby cafe, which has a big sign out front ALL NIGHT CAFE. They need dry clothes and she finds a waitress uniform and puts it on, while he puts on the cook's duds. Right away they fit in, as if they've always worked there. There's also Blackie (Robert Englund), who runs the place, a mysterious guy who may equally be a devil or an angel. He's like a good version of Freddy Krueger. He explains that the cafe gives people a second chance and through flashbacks/time travel both Frank and Fay are able to correct their last mistakes, though they both still end up dying. However, the diner needs them and so they become sort-of-ghosts/spirits, who are able to manifest themselves in the physical world when needed.

The second episode has a love interest for Frank, a sort of femme fatale character. The woman ends up in jail for killing her husband and is haunted by his ghost, who is all charred up because he was cremated (he looks like FREDDY). In the third episode, which concerns a reunion with her sister, features Molly Parker and Peter Outerbridge, the stars of the necrophilia ovie KISSED, made a decade later. The fourth episode is a detective/film noir mystery, the fifth the cafe appears in Frank's hometown, where he has to resolve some issues. This episode features a good performance by Angela Basset. The six episode is a comedy dealing with a tabloid newspaper reporter and aliens who have disguised themselves as midgets.

The series had possibilities but I think the producers went too fast with things, changing the tone of the show from episode to episode.

Created by Wes Craven and Peter Baum
