The Ultimate Movie Review! - http://tss5078.blogspot.com
24 December 2011 | by Tss5078See all my reviews

I really like going back and seeing how my favorite stars got their start. To be honest, I expected The Nightmare Room to be kind of lame, but it wasn't. It was written by R.L. Stein, for kids, but the stories are actually interesting and have some neat twists. I saw it as the PG version of Tales From The Crypt and I actually enjoyed it quite a bit. The stories range from evil tempers, to killer dolls, and even a story about what would happen if all a kids lies came true. Even early on Shia LaBeouf had an intensity about him and Tania Raymonde (Lost) had a quirkiness that you see in their future roles. The Nightmare Room isn't what I'd call scary, but I think kids will love it and unlike most children stories, I think many adults would enjoy this too.
