212) American Nightmare (1983) (Canada) DVD Scorpion Releasing: A Jon Bon Jovi looking young man named Eric searches for his missing sister in the seedy underbelly of some god forsaken city. When the detective (Michael F’N Ironside) he went to turns up nothing, Eric launches his own investigation with the help of his sister’s roommate/stripper friend. It all has something to do with secretly shot videotapes of well off customers with prostitutes and a charity organization headed by the missing girls’ father. As they dig deeper, the people around them begin meeting grizzly ends. Nasty Canadian sleaze with a mean streak a mile wide and a relentlessly downbeat vibe. Highly recommended for anyone else who enjoys a dive in the trashier side of the genre pool. 8/10 #americannightmare#horror#scorpionreleasing#horrorfilms#horrormovies#eightieshorror#canadianhorror#michaelironside#dvd#filmcollection#horrorcollection#review#sleaze#trashfilms#themeritsofsin
