Aside from another rediscovered cult classic - LEMORA, A CHILD'S TALE OF THE SUPERNATURAL - DEATHDREAM has always been my favorite horror film from the 1970's that haunted me on numerous late-night TV showings. I've watched this cult classic countless times and have come in contact with numerous bad quality prints on VHS, complete with extremely cheesy box artwork!!! For years I've hoped for a DVD remastering of this special film, and now, thanks to Blue Underground, we have the definitive edition. DEATHDREAM is now in anamorphic widescreen, from a remastered negative and accompanied by juicy extras to please hardcore fans like me! Although there are times when a bit of grain is still noticeable in a few sequences, this is THE version to own.
For the 'virgin viewer,' you're in for a treat. DEATHDREAM is a grim, low-key, and extremely eerie film that benefits from great performances by John Marley, Lynn Carlin, and especially Richard Backus as Andy; a chilling AND moving script by Alan Ormsby; an unsettling music score by Carl Zittrer; grisly makeup effects by Orsmby and a young Tom Savini; and screw-tightening direction by Bob Clark. The overall effect is tragic and haunting.
The film was one of the first to address the cataclysmic after-effects of the Vietnam war when veterans returned to their families. Andy plays one such veteran, a young man whose parents receive the awful news that their son has been killed in action. The night they receive this information there's a knock at their front door. It is Andy, although they are shocked at his pale, sunken face and expressionless demeanor.

I am originally from Georgia, U.S.A. and have been living in the UK for more than five years now. I first saw "Deathdream" at a drive-in in Georgia under the title "It Came From The Grave!" back in the 1980's. I then saw it there on VHS video under the title "Deathdream". It was out here in the UK a few years ago on VHS video and played on t.v. here under the title "Dead of Night", which could be confused with the 1945 British classic of the same title. I sincerely hope that Blue Underground will make this DVD release of "Deathdream" available here in the UK very soon. Along with Bob Clark's other classic, "Black Christmas", it is one of my favorite horror films of all-time. It's great to see "Deathdream" finally getting the recognition that it has long deserved.

Like Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things, this movie is a must see for "B" movie or Bob Clark fans.
Deathdream wasn't nearly as creepy as CSPwDT but it had a better story line and better acting. I felt that it was a good story line bringing the effects of the vietnam war and the effect it had to the family's of the soldiers.
Deathdream was also Tom Savini's film debut (make-up and special effects artist known for his work on the living dead movies by George A. Romero & Friday the 13th 1&4 and don't forget Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2)
Enjoy

Bob Clark's 1974 film Deathdream is a very good try at an American horror movie with a great idea that somehow does not quite gel. Fusing the Vietnam War with the classic tale "The Monkey's Paw", Clark here creates what could have been a minor masterpiece but unfortunately falls short.
The main character, Andy, is a young soldier in the Vietnam War. One day his parents receive the tragic news that he has been killed. They are grief-stricken, of course, but cling to the hope that somehow he may still be alive. The mother, in fact, keeps saying to herself, "You promised me, Andy"--to return, that is.
And one night, he does. Naturally his parents are overjoyed. What they don't know is that Andy has come back as, unfortunately, a walking dead man--a zombie. At first things seem to be relatively normal, but soon enough Andy's condition starts deteriorating and he needs a lot of blood to keep things healthy, so to speak.
The film starts to fall apart as the Andy's condition itself deteriorates and it becomes basically a gorefest--which for gorehounds is fine, but for those of us who want more can be frustrating. While the first half of the film is excellent, the second half sags and that's really too bad.
I would really have loved to give this four stars, but it's just not quite there.
