AllMusic Review by

Omen's second release of 1985 was this generous six-song EP, which, aside from introducing a trio of brand new tracks ("Shock Treatment," "Bounty Hunter" and, most memorably, the one that provides its name), reprised some of the band's best material to date ("Dragon's Breath," the thrash-intensive "Termination"), plus a live cover of AC/DC's "Whole Lotta Rosie." All in all, nothing too exciting for first time listeners, but quite the collectable nugget for more serious fans to seek out. [Nightmares was later reissued on CD, tacked on to Omen's subsequent full-length, 1988's The Curse.]
