Product Details

Product Description

From The Director Of THE CRAFT, The Screenwriter Of DIE HARD, & The Producer Of THE TERMINATOR In the mid-70s, the members of the love cult Unity Fields sought ‘the ultimate joining’ by dousing themselves with gasoline and committing mass suicide. A young girl blown clear of the fiery explosion was the only survivor. Thirteen years later, Cynthia (Jennifer Rubin of A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 3) awakens from a coma inside a psychiatric hospital with only buried memories of that horrific day. But now, her fellow patients are each being driven to their own violent suicides. Has the sect’s hideously burned leader (Richard Lynch) returned to claim his final child, or is something even more depraved lurking within her BAD DREAMS? Bruce Abbott (RE-ANIMATOR), Harris Yulin (SCARFACE), E.G. Daily (THE DEVIL’S REJECTS) and Dean Cameron (SUMMER SCHOOL) co-star in this intense horror shocker directed by Andrew Fleming (THE CRAFT, DICK), co-written by Steven de Souza (DIE HARD, 48 HRS) and produced by Gale Anne Hurd (ARMAGEDDON, T2).

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated Entertainment! Jan. 23 2001
Format:VHS Tape
"Bad Dreams" came out around the same time as Nightmare on Elm Street and is very much a product of the 80s and horror filmmaking style at that time. The film tell the story of the sole survivor of an interesting hippielike commune/cult led by a David Koreshish type leader.
Yet "Bad Dreams" is a cut above for many reasons. The first being that the film is filled with surrealistic arresting images-in particular, the house where the mass suicide took place is an intriguing looking building, tragically beautiful.
Secondly, "Bad Dreams" encompasses a fascinating character in the African American female mental patient who frequently says mysterious and pseudo religious things and seems to be the only one who knows whats going on.
Thirdly, the acting by all involved is really superior to what you find in most horror films. Rubin is especially good at emoting and I am mystified why I never heard of her before I rented this film.
Lastly, I think most viewers miss an interesting touch in the film, at one point, Cynthia is sitting in the grass turned around in the exact same pose as the painting by Andrew Wyeth "Christina's World"! It was a really awesome touch that I think may go unappreciated by those not farmiliar with this painting.
In short, "Bad Dreams" is a must see, with a great twist ending also. A must for any horror fan or suspense lover.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Movie That Affects Just Certain People April 19 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Well, the first time I saw this movie I literally became obsessed with the whole cult tragedy story, mainly because I was very young and looking for movies to satisfy me, but as I've gotten older, I can still say that this movie is one of my favorite scary, weirdy, "Halloween Mood" movies. I mean, it goes from the time this little girl was involved in a mass suicide (she survived) of course and then, it goes to 14 years later and she's still haunted by her past experiences. I guess with a movie like this, you can create your own kind of story line because it never said why she was in the cult group to begin with, so you can kind of make up a story of your own. But anyway, I thought it was a great movie, not because it was Academy Award winning acting nor did it have an extremely intellectual plot, but I liked it because it was good at a certain time of my life and now I can look at that film, and remember myself always! Ha!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Cut Above the Norm Dec 6 2003
By Em Jay
Format:VHS Tape
I miss this movie. If there was a film that should be moved up on the list to be transferred to DVD this film would be it. It's not your typical horror film where there's nothing but mindless slice and dice behind motives of stupidity. The main character deals with the psychological aspects of something horrible happening to her (which makes sense since it takes place in a mental ward). But when the bodies start to fall, the "culprit" is not so obvious. No Freddy Kruger or Michael Myers. This movie also pulls you in through the supporting cast, all interesting and even funny. I love this movie! I give it five stars as a contender against other horror films and it rates right up there with the originals like NIGHTMARE AN ELM STREET and HALLOWEEN. There's death. There's drugs. There's comedy, and hey, even a little romance. Grab some popcorn and spend two hours with BAD DREAMS. You won't be disappointed!

4.0 out of 5 stars My jaw hit the floor! March 28 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I can't really find the words to describe this film, but I'll try. :) I like horror flicks as much as the next guy, but this film was a cut above. To be honest the only reason I saw it in the first place was because Dean Cameron was in it, and speaking of DC, his performance is amazing! The small smirk before saying "Later" just blew me away. The small details in voice variation and facial expressions..the man is the best. And let's not forget about Jennifer Rubin! Blood, Blood, and more blood, Peter Pans out the window, blood showers, and Ralph's self-stabbing fest makes this film one to watch on an empty stomach. Don't make the same mistake I did by going to "The Bell" before watching this. Great film! Richard Lynch is scary, Jennifer Rubin is amazing, and Dean Cameron shows us the meaning of the word 'range'. Great!

4.0 out of 5 stars Jennifer Rubin is still having...'Bad Dreams' Nov. 11 2001
Format:VHS Tape
The beautiful Jennifer Rubin is back in familiar territory a year on from being drugged to death by Freddy Krueger in 'A Nightmare on Elm St. 3: Dream Warriors'. This film is so very familiar to 'Nightmare 3' with it's hospital setting and Freddy-like Boogeyman. Also eagle-eyed viewers may recognise one doctor in this film who played a dream doctor in the original 'Nightmare On Elm St.
I personally enjoy 80's horrors like this even if they often seem chessy or uber-gruesome. 'Bad Dreams' is an under-rated gem of a horror film and the effects are NOT bad despite what Mr. Professional critic at the top of the page may say. Only you can really judge for yourself. If you're a fan of Freddy, or effects laden horror/suspense then give 'Bad Dreams' a try, it also has a twist at the end which means at least some thought went into this script.

4.0 out of 5 stars Damn good movie! Jan. 11 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Jennifer Rubin, Dean Cameron, and the rest of the cast had amazing chemistry that really came through in the final product.
This movie is, indeed, a cut above the rest as it doesn't explain everything to the letter as other movies do. For me, that's what ruins the mystery and the chances of me watching it again.
What drew me the most to this movie was the soundtrack. Nothing like hearing The Chambers Brothers "Time Has Come Today" (during the initial suicide scene and when Cynthia revisited the horror awake and alseep) as well as "I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night" by The Electric Prunes (played as the ambulance took Cynthia away from the scene at the very beginning of the movie).
This movie is definitely worth watching many times.

Bad dreams is the kind of movie you watch on an empty stomach. There are a lot of very gross bloody scenes, so if you have a weak stomach you might want to sit this one out. Read more
