The man who brought many Stephen King adaptations to (big and small) screens all over the world. A true horror icon, though he often works in the shadows as a producer. Not a great director, but horror fans will find he has an interesting body of work.

Solid pieces

The inoffensive

Nightmare Cinema serves a prime selection of horror directors, but none of them were able to deliver their best work. Still, there's enough variety to keep things interesting and there are no stinkers either. Like most anthologies, the sum is bigger than its parts and if you're a horror fan, this film should have enough to keep you entertained.
