Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Based on David Wiltshire's novel Child of the Vodyanoi, the four-part British miniseries The Nightmare Man was set on the gloomy Scottish island of Inverdee. The island's populace was held in thrall by a mysterious, monstrous murderer. By the time the series had hit its mid-story mark, all evidence indicated that the killer was extraterrestrial in nature. The Nightmare Man was presented by BBC1 from May 1 to 22, 1981.
