Superb drama that all fans of ghost stories need to see.
16 January 2005 | by (Conn) – See all my reviews

This story blows away half of the ghost stories on the big screen. Death Dreams is a book as well as a movie and both follow each other quite closely. It is hard for me to think that any fan of the ghost story genre would not have an interest in this. It is a superbly written, very unusual and intense story which probably would have done well on the big screen too.

The movie's tough to watch(as is the book to read) because of the subject matter but it does make me wonder why there's so many bad horrors that get released when there are material like this around.This story's got intensity, great talent in the acting department, twists and turns and genuine surprises and can be a bit frightening as well as intense. My thoughts are-if one likes a really engrossing psychological thriller/ghost story they should see this AND read the book.
