A sinister cult called Unity Fields commits mass suicide in a horrific manner - by fire - at the behest of its psychopathic leader, Harris.
Only one woman named Cynthia survives to tell the tale.
Now, 13 years later, Cynthia is having reminders of the life changing incident, as people around her begin to die one at a time.
Cynthia finds out quickly that the ghost of Harris is back... to claim her.....
Ironically called Bad Dreams, the film is essentially a remake of A Nightmare On Elm Part Three: The Dream Warriors, everyone in the institution is haunted by the title of the film, and Lynch is essentially Freddy, burnt features included.
And while its a watchable movie, and Dean Cameron is in it (and the best thing), it gets a little bland, and Rubin really starts to grate on you after a while.
Lynch pops up every now and again in his Bonanza outfit, to say something sinister, and one by one people die, much to the perplextion of a running doctor, but the narrative doesn't compliment the story.
There are a few standout scenes, the opening sequence is amazing, but it really falls apart when we hit present day...
