I usually shy away from the eighties films that aren’t at least partly produced in USA, but this is one of those rare occasions where I make an exception. Nightmare Beach, directed by Umberto Lenzi, has its country of origin marked as Italy, but is filmed in Florida with american actors. And as whole it’s totally passable for a Hollywood film of the era.
Plus; it’s just far too good to pass up in this blog.
Eighties-wise the movie presses almost all the right buttons, taking place at a coastal beach town during the spring break and featuring killers, a great soundtrack gruesome kills, motorcycle gangs and bad cops. It’s a shameless entertainment that gives you exactly what you’d expect in a very nice package.
