Another movie for the Hammer collection for this reviw I think. This time it is 1964s Nightmare. This is from the realism side of the Hammer stable and, like Paranoiac and Taste of Fear, is rooted firmly in psychological foundations.
Our young Heroine Janet (Played by Jenny Linden) is trouble by nightmares and fears she is losing her mind as her mother before her. This leads to her return home from Boarding School where her fears become even more pronounced. The film is brilliantly shot in black and white and initially very interesting indeed. Once the first major revelation occurs however the film tapers off into what I felt was a weaker second half. Despite this weaker climax I still feel that the movie has some good bones in it and thus well worth a watch.
If you can find it, take a look.
