Bad Dreams - In the mid-seventies, a cult called Unity Field commit mass suicide by dousing themselves in gasoline and setting themselves ablaze. A young girl, Cynthia, survives the fire and is taken to hospital where she falls into a coma. Thirteen years later, Cynthia wakes up and has little memory of the fire, so she is assigned a psychiatrist, Dr. Alex Karmen, who puts her in a group with his other patients. Cynthia soon starts to see visions of the cult leader, Harris, who still wants her to kill herself and join the others. Cynthia refuses, so Harris goes after the other members of her therapy group. Has Harris really returned from the grave, or is something altogether different killing the group?

Jennifer Rubin, who made her film debut a year earlier in A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, is an attractive and likeable lead as Cynthia. Bruce Abbott, a few years after starring as Dan Cain in Re-Animator, once again plays it pretty straight, but produces a good performance as Dr. Karmen. The late Richard Lynch is perfectly cast as Harris, Dean Cameron puts everything into his role as Ralph, who is in Cynthia's therapy group. Harris Yulin, Sy Richardson and Charles Fleischer add a touch of class in small supporting roles. Bad Dreams was the directorial debut of Andrew Fleming, he was only 23 years old at the time and did a wonderful job. He later went on to make The Craft, Dick and The In-Laws. The effects are excellent, especially the visions of a badly burned Harris. Michèle Burke, six time Oscar nominee, two time winner was responsible for the effects. The production values are good, shot for $4,000,000 and produced by Gale Anne Hurd, who is best known for Terminator and Aliens.

I got this package because I like Bad Dreams and I had never got round to Visiting Hours. A two birds with one click job.
One of the best examples of the post-Nighmare On Elm street slasher-like horror thrillers. The production values are good, the story is interesting and the actors do a great job. If you like late 80s horror this one fits with films like Retribution, in that avoids the then popular fashion for mixing horror and comedy. The extras are very good, with a making of doc, cast inteviews, trailers, comemntaries and an alternative ending.
I feel like a complete wazzock about film. I'm a slasher fan to the point where I've got copies of films like Fatal Games, Silent Madness and hundereds of others. Visiting Hours should have been a must. It comes highly recommended, was made in Canada with a good budget, has Micheal Ironside as the killer and came out at the height of the slasher boom, plus it was a video nasty! But somehow I didn't like the look of it. William Shatner and Lee Grant just screamed soap opera histrionics. I told myself I'll get round to it eventually and then found other things to watch. And then finally I did. It's a really really smart flick! Characters that are set up as slasher fodder, not only survive but are given the dignity of resourcefulness and common sense. A couple of the attacks took me by surprise and the killer is fleshed out without being one of those annoying angst ridden cry-babies you're supposed to feel sorry for. Honestly, it's one I wished I could say I grew up with or even had watched years ago. It's up there with The Prowler as one of the best.

The latest release from Shout Factory, their "Killer Double Feature," offers two great 80's slasher films. The pairing of the brilliantly entertaining Bad Dreams, and the underrated Michael Ironside picture Visiting Hours. Both films were previously released by Anchor Bay, I missed out on getting these two films before so I figured that I'd just get this double feature since it was much cheaper. Bad Dreams follows the story of Cynthia (Jennifer Rubin, who you might recognise from Nightmare on Elm Street part 3), the lone survivor from a mass suicide committed by a cult called "Unity Fields" in the 70's. Members covered themselves with gasoline, struck matches and burned themselves, and their house down to the ground, leaving only this young girl and a shattered psyche. 13 years later, we are thrust into her world. Awaking from a coma in a psyche ward, Cynthia must not only come to terms with her past, but also a rash of recent inmate suicides.

She also seems to be chased down by the apperition of the cult leader (Richard Lynch), who seeks revenge. With one hell of a sense of humor and some great scares, this is both a film paired with some great supporting material and some nice gore scenes, but also genuinely an entertaining horror flick. The best aspect of this film however has to be Andrew Fleming's direction, it was stylishly made and had a great atmosphere plus it had that guy from Re-Animator (Bruce Abbott) as one of the doctors. And then there are the supplements. What a collection. First off, the transfer is actually solid. The soundtrack plays wonderfully here, and visually, the transfer does more than its job. A commentary with Fleming is featured here, giving this release some real re-watchability, as it is both insightful and entertaining.
