As her marriage to decorated war hero Oliver draws near, well-heeled Diana moves into an apartment within an otherwise unoccupied, sprawling London house where she starts to experience strange and terrifying nightmares. But are these troubling night terrors merely the symptom of an unsettled mind, or the sign of something far more sinister at work? Hounded by a pair of sleazy journalists, Diana soon crosses paths with American tourist Jenny, who appears to have a strange connection to the foreboding house and its dark past.
Movie Dream Demon
DREAM DEMON is a supernatural horror film, from 1988, in which a woman dreams about demons who turn out to be real.
A woman slaps a man's face and his head flies off, a man's ear is torn off, and a woman's fist emerges through the back of a man's head after she punches him in the face. The scenes are accompanied by bloodspurts and injury detail, but occur within a fantasy context.
In one scene, a man accidentally sets himself on fire.
Threat and horror:
There are several prolonged scenes in which people are threatened by monsters.
There is domestic abuse in scenes in which a man stalks his daughter before tying her up.
In one scene, a naked woman with her breasts exposed lies next to a man in bed.
There is also strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder terms ('bitch', 'slut', 'dickhead', 'shit', 'bullshit', 'asshole', 'piss off', 'bastard', 'bloody', 'bleeding', 'goddamit', 'God', 'damn', 'hell', 'Jesus Christ'),
The film also contains a scene in which a man is hanged by a supernatural presence, moderate sex references, and brief references to sexual violence and drug misuse.
