In this Norwegian horror film, a woman is plagued by constant nightmares after moving into a large, suspiciously cheap apartment. The apartment's terrible secret soon reveals itself through her dreams.

Mona and Robby, a young couple, have recently bought their first apartment together. The apartment feels huge, and they are surprised that they were even able to afford it. Is the death of a previous owner the reason why it was so cheap? Mona begins experiencing terrible nightmares every night. It becomes apparent that the apartment hides a terrible secret, one that gradually reveals itself in Mona's dreams.

This stylish horror movie effectively wields a solid arsenal of genre references – especially Roman Polanski's Rosemary's Baby (1968) stands out as a major influence. Capitalizing on the helplessness one feels during sleep paralysis, the film creates a universe where the line between dream and reality becomes increasingly blurred. With the help of excellent cinematography and sound design, Nightmare conjures a dreamlike, evocative and genuinely creepy atmosphere that will keep you awake at night.


Kjersti Helen Rasmussen (b. 1974) is a Norwegian director and screenwriter. She studied at the National Film School of Denmark, and co-runs the production company Filmkompaniet MadMonkey. She has written screenplays for several short films and features, such as Dark Woods 2 and The Tunnel. Nightmare is her feature debut as a director.
