Kimberly Beck in Nightmare at Noon (1988)

It's been a great while since I have seen Nightmare at Noon, also known as Death Street USA. To put it nice, it is a B-rate Sci-Fi turd that clocks in at over 2 hours long. It also stars Bo Hopkins (one degree of separation; he was in Sweet Sixteen with Dana Kimmell!) George Kennedy, and Wings Hauser. The movie in a nutshell is about evil scientists putting a questionable substance in the town's water supply, which in turn drives the residents to become blood-thirsty. 

The movie was directed by Niko Mastorakis, who also did The Wind and The Zero Boys, which also connects him the the Friday the 13th franchise. The post art for The Wind was also used for the Turkish release of Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning and the Zero Boys had a scene shot at the legendary cabin at the Veluzat Movie Ranch, which was of course used in Friday the 13th Part III.


  1. Ah too cool! I was just watching online the other day Massacre At Central High which of course stars Beck, and alas I was thinking of her. Life is truly quirky 'n eccentric, ya know? And once again your boundless knowledge of the Friday franchise is so cool. I have Asperger's Syndrome & I always dug how ya think about this retro cinema series since I honestly don't like the hazy modern High-Def/HD look of most modern movies myself starting at around post '04 and upward...

    1. I used to be a mountain of useless knowlege. Most of it is slowing escaping me.

  2. Well now no worries my good man, as I have Asperger's Syndrome and have followed this franchise since I was a young lad so I can help ya out ;-)

  3. The movies in the 70's and 80's were the best. I've seen most of them but luckily there were thousands made to enjoy. I have always loved Part 5 and the series will always be a part of me. I never seem to grow tired of watching it. Parts 1-5 and that's it for me. The MPAA ruined the rest of the movies. Thanks for your vast knowledge!!! The fans truly appreciate it!!!
