Nightwish (1990)


Genres are mixed in this sci-fi/horror tale. A college professor invites his four graduate students to accompany him at his personal farm to investigate paranormal activity but when the students channel an evil spirit that unleashes their deepest fears, they must find a way to conquer themselves. Making matters worse is that there is the possibility that aliens are using the demonic forces to take over the world and the professor is in the middle of it all. As a small, indie made sci-fi horror film with appeasing special effects and one hell of a plot, it’s certainly not bad. The intentions are right and the cheesiness is there but the direction of the actors and actresses makes the film fumble. Still, it was fun watching it to see just how deep they tap into the human psyche when it comes to sleep and mentality.
