Nomads

Nomads avoids the more obvious ripped-guts devices in favor of dramatic visual scares. Director John McTiernan even has some kind of a love interest in his story without cluttering up the plot with sticky romance or strained eroticism. In fact, everything seems to come naturally in a tale that even has the supernatural ring true.

In fact, everything seems to come naturally in a tale that even has the supernatural ring true.

Pierce Brosnan plays French anthropologist Pommier who intends to settle in LA with his wife Niki (Anna-Maria Montecelli), when flesh-and-blood (seemingly) Evil Spirits of nomads he once studied in arctic and desert regions materialize to haunt him. They now look like death-pale punkers.

The acting of Brosnan and Lesley-Anne Down (as a doctor) is the more effective for being restrained. Singer Adam Ant is seen as one of the Nomads.
