Filmmaker and part-time conspiracy theoristOliver Stone has got a secret...a good one. Back in 1974, he was behind the low budget horror flick Seizure, which he directed and co-wrote the with Edward Mann. If you've never heard of Seizure, don't be surprised: Stone has gone so far as to purchase the rights to the movie so it would never be seen by anybody.

Too bad there's this thing called the Internet where nothing ever goes away. Enter a manic laugh here, or something. 

Anyway, the full film is up on YouTube thanks to one user who, according to his channel, seems to be uploading a lot of retro horror films from the '70s. Don't expect some masterpiece akin to Stone's other films like Natural Born Killers and Wall Street—Stone purchased the rights to this film for a reason, and that's because it's bad. But hey, we've all gotta start somewhere, right? At the very least, it's the kind of bad that's hilarious to watch. Starring Jonathan Frid, Martine Beswick, Hervé Villechaize, and Mary Wonorove, the film follows the story of a man who sees his recurring nightmare coming to life in increasingly strange, "terrifying" ways.

Check out the full film above.
