I saw a film a few years ago. The plot involved a guy who finds himself in the wrong part of town and he spends the entire film trying to get back home, but keeps ending up in harrowing situations that prevent it from happening. It’s not a horror movie or some woo-woo supernatural thing; the guy is literally in a real-life nightmare that he can’t seem to escape from.
Griffin Dunne? 2nd lead in American Werewolf in London, the friend who gets turned, and bits & pieces of him keep falling off. After Hours also stars Rosanna Arquette as the woman obsessed by The Wizard of Oz and who may or may not be horribly disfigured by burns.
ETA: also wonderful use of, IIRC, the song “Is That all There Is” by Peggy Lee.
We watched it last night. I’d forgotten parts of it, particularly the ending. It holds up very well for a 1985 film, having very few, if any, references to that era other than the amusingly clunky word processors.
