Nightmares (1983) Four horror tales based on urban legends. The first story 'Terror in Topanga', has a smoking addict going out to buy some cigarettes despite there being a killer in the neighborhood. The second story 'Bishop of Battle', has a teenager who becomes so good at a video game, that the game comes to life to collect him. The third story, 'The Benediction' (based on Steven Spielberg's 'Duel') has a priest whom has lost his faith, leaving his monastery and stalked on the road by a black pick-up truck from hell, literally. The fourth story 'Night of the Rat', (loosely based on 'Poltergeist') has a couple, along with their young daughter, battling a giant rat living in their suburban home.

Movie Trivia:
  • Originally made for network television, but deemed "too intense." Extra footage was added and it was released theatrically.
  • The computer game sequences in this part of the film were generated on an ACS1200 and cost so much that it nearly bankrupted production.
  • Emilio Estevez went through a two week training course with the NYPD on gun use to train for his battle scenes when the computer-generated enemies entered the real world.
  • Lee Ving, lead singer of punk band Fear, appears in the segment, "Terror in Topanga." One of the songs that Emilio Estevez listens to in the segment "Bishop of Battle" is "I Love Livin' in the City" by Fear.
  • These stories were originally written and filmed for the anthology series "Darkroom" (1981). They were deemed too intense by Universal and thus culled into an anthology film for theatrical release.
