Deadly Dull
28 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Deadly Dreams is yet another snooze-fest trying to pass itself off as a horror flick. The acting is fine, you even get to see some breasts, but that's about it. The plot involves the main character having dreams about a killer, and soon these dreams start to become reality. The film is really about revenge, and all is revealed in the 'twist' ending. There was potential in Deadly Dreams, it could have been a nifty backwoods slasher if they had tried - the hunting mask would have looked cool as a slasher mask. Sadly the potential doesn't seem to have been realised because Deadly Dreams is just a chore to watch. There is minimal blood, tedious dialogue, lifeless characters, and only one half-decent death scene which is at the end.

Don't bother seeking it out - it's REALLY not worth it.
