In "Nightmare," Gregory Peck stars as a father who exacts revenge on a drunk driver for the death of his son.
For him, the fear began with an incident involving a careless driver the day before the Fourth of July weekend. One that upset him and sent him to bed early that night.
The next afternoon...Ben goes on a fishing trip with his wife, Elsa and their son, Stevie. Midway up the mountain, they run out of gas. Ben leaves them to walk back to the gas station, and while he is gone, Stevie is killed by a drunk driver.
Ben then decides to take the law into his own hands and kill the man who murdered his son.
Do two wrongs make a right?
