First Look: Mickey Rourke Serves the Scares in Cinelou's Horror Anthology 'Nightmare Cinema' (Exclusive Image)
Mickey Rourke is serving the scares in The Hollywood Reporter's exclusive first look at Nightmare Cinema.
The horror anthology movie from Cinelou Films features shorts from five genre directors: Mick Garris, Joe Dante, David Slade, Ryuhei Kitamura and Alejandro Brugues.
Altogether echoing classic anthology series like The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits, the movie centers on a group of down-on-their-luck individuals who enter the decrepit Rialto Theatre. Their deepest and darkest fears are brought to life onscreen by The Projectionist (Rourke), a mysterious, ghostly figure who holds the nightmarish futures of all who attend — and cannot escape — his screenings.
Garris is producing via his Nice Guy Productions, with Cinelou's Courtney Solomon and Mark Canton, and Joe Russo. Good Deed Entertainment's Scott Donley and Lenny Shapiro, as well as The Fyzz Facility's Wayne Marc Godfrey and Robert Jones, are serving as executive producers, along with Cinelou's Scott Karol.
Fortitude is selling the film at AFM. See additional exclusive images of Nightmare Cinema below.
