BAD DREAMS (1988, R)

In the mid-1970s 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, Screamers) 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 leader (Richard Lynch, Deathsport) returned to claim his final child? Bruce Abbott (Re-Animator) co-stars in the intense shocker Bad Dreams from director Andrew Fleming (The Craft) and producer Gale Anne Hurd (Punisher: War Zone, The Incredible Hulk).


Academy Award-winner Lee Grant (Best Supporting Actress in 1975 for Shampoo) stars as outspoken TV journalist Deborah Ballin, whose crusade against domestic violence enrages a creepy loner (a truly disturbing performance by Michael Ironside, Scanners) in Visiting Hours. He brutally attacks the anchorwoman in her home, but Ballin survives and is hospitalized. Her assailant is enraged; he is haunted by a horrific childhood trauma . . . and now he has hidden himself inside the hospital to finish what he started. Can anybody - including her concerned boss (William Shatner), a frantic nurse (Linda Purl, Happy Days) or Deborah herself - stop the psycho's killing spree before it reaches sick new extremes?

Why We Love It

"I don't know who it is at Shout Factory that picks out the movies for their double features, but I'd love to give the guy a medal. One of these double features swirled around campy '80s horror movies with monsters coming out of TVs. Another shamelessly showcased busty, since-famous actresses getting all kinds of naked in mediocre thrillers" – DVD Talk

"Par for the course, Scream’s presentation of the material is yet another home run, making it a must-own for fans or even the uninitiated." – Daily Dead 

"Presented on Blu-ray for the first time by Scream Factory, this double feature of Bad Dreams and Visiting Hours is only for the most diehard horror-hounds. In terms of audio and video quality, these films have never looked better" – Geeks of Doom
