Several people are hunted by a cruel serial killer who kills his victims in their dreams. While the survivors are trying to find the reason for being chosen, the murderer won't lose any chance to kill them as soon as they fall asleep.
There is panic throughout the nation as the dead suddenly come back to life. The film follows a group of characters who barricade themselves in an old farmhouse in an attempt to remain safe from these flesh eating monsters.
A young family are visited by ghosts in their home. At first the ghosts appear friendly, moving objects around the house to the amusement of everyone, then they turn nasty and start to terrorise the family before they "kidnap" the youngest daughter. Written by
At a point of the movie, Dr. Lesh talks with Diane and Robbie about a white light that people see when they are dying. As well as it describes may derive from war stories that pilots claim to have seen in combat, the Dr. Lesh's explanations about the light and the effects of the people who see it are inspired in the book "Life After Life", written by Dr. Raymond Moody and published in 1975. It's a series of compilations and testimonies about people who by a brief time were dead and later lived again, called NDE or Near-Death Experience. One of the trademarks in this phenomenon is a voice (commonly a friend or familiar died time ago) saying "It's not your time", indicating to the person that he/she must back to life, closing it to the Dr. Lesh's explanations.

I watched this as I'd heard that it was well acclaimed, and I'm a horror fan. Dint find it so impressive though.
A family of 5 is tormented by paranormal forces in their house, and they employ paranormal investigators to help them.
The film is good for the acting, the special effects and make up work especially in the end, and all this 30 years ago in cinema is noteworthy.
But it's hardly scary with luck, maybe some kids will get scared nowadays. the film is slow paced for the first quarter and then picks up speed. It's more of an investigation thriller film initially, and then changes it's theme. But it's definitely better and not even comparable to Friday the 13th films, which are just nonsense.
5 stars...lemme see how part 2 is.
