AMERICAN NIGHTMARES is written and directed by Darin Scott and Rusty Cundieff (TALES FROM THE HOOD), starring Danny Trejo, Chris Kattan, Clarence Williams III, Jay Mohr, Nichelle Nichols, Vivica Fox, and more.
Logline: Mr. Malevolent (Danny Trejo) hacks into two millennials’ computers and forces them to watch horror tales which reveal the twisted consequences of various immoral crimes.
Concept: Like the “Tales from the Crypt” and “American Horror Story” television series, “American Nightmares ” is a horror-comedy that teaches valuable moral lessons to its audience. Each tale is over-the-top, but reflects important societal conflicts surrounding racial discrimination and the treatment towards others.
