Capturing all the energy from his Detroit concert in 1986, The Nightmare Returns is a spectacular showcase of entertaining thrills. Yes, fans will be glad to know that all the classic songs and trademarks are here, from the straitjacket escape in "Ballad of Dwight Fry" to the use of a boa constrictor in "Be My Lover." However, the video does have its flaws – Alice Cooper's vocals are surprisingly out of tune and can be pretty annoying. The crew also has a hard time staying out of the way, and unfortunately the fantasy of the show is often ruined because a staff member gets in the way of the camera. It is still a fine release, however, and the guillotine trick never looked better.
