For lovers of horrifically low-budget mood pieces only (ala Carnival of Souls, Night Tide.)
28 September 2002 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Being the first to write on this film I suppose I should give a brief overview of what it is about. A man (played by director Berry) has a recurrent nightmare concerning a spooky house down the street. The nightmare is mostly slow moving artsy stuff with an organ score even more discordantly off key than Carnival of Souls. Anyways, in the dream he sees someone he knows and when he wakes he learns that the person he dreamt about has just died. His wife tries to convince him it is nothing but this same sequence of events happens again, ending with another dead.

I should stop there so not to spoil anything. The film is obscure to say the least. The plot was intriguing enough for me to sit through but anyone who found 2001 boring should definately stay away. This film personifies independent low budget filmmaking. Not much excitement in the traditional sense although worthy of being viewed for its pre-Eraserhead weirdness. I gave it a 5 for it's ambitions and there are some neat ideas (like having the credits written on the floors of the old house.) Still, if anyone who has lived next to a spooky house and wanted to make a no budget movie about it this film might serve as a good indication of what you'll come up with, a slow, dull home movie.
