VHS For The Win: Dreamaniac

Is it any surprise that a knock-off film of A Nightmare on Elm Street finally showed up here?  Nope.  This one does look kind of interesting though...
Yeah, that's a really dumb tag-line and a very odd-looking villain.  Is that Egghead or Puppet Master from The Fantastic Four comics?  You decide!

Incidentally, I tried to track this down for a real review.  As far as I can tell, it's only available on- wait for it- VHS!  Oh well, it's not worth the $15 or so that they want for it.

Up next, a movie with one of the most blatantly-stupid titles of all time.  How does the box art match up?  Stay tuned...


  1. Looks only slightly identical to BAD DREAMS as well

  2. I suppose it shouldn't be surprise me to find more than one 'Elm Street' knock-off out there.

    As an aside, I am sort of curious to see how this movie actually turned out. My guess- utter shit.

  3. It allllmost doesn't look half bad, and I love that it proudly proclaims "An original, made-for-video feature film." The tag-line's sort of reminiscent of PIECES, as well- "You don't have to live on Elm Street to have a nightmare" versus "You don't have to go to Texas to have a chainsaw massacre." Lot of creativity on display here.
