Storyline

Moira is married to an abusive husband, who is having an affair with his secretary. On top of it she is troubled by recurrent dreams of running into a mysterious man waiting for her, and they always end up making love. Moira visits an astrologer to interpret her dreams, and is always brought a shy close to her dream lover, but never realizing it. Meanwhile, the man - whose name is Richard - has been having similar dreams. One day, she sees the same house she has been seeing in her dreams, where Richard happens to be working as a renovator. They both become captivated with each other, go back to Richard's place, and have an affair. They realize that they are meant for each other. But they also know that if Moira's husband gets a whiff of their relationship he won't stand it and make life hell for both of them, so he must be gotten out of their way somehow.

Not among Tweed's best
29 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

"Illicit Dreams" is not the first film to feature the premise of a woman who has recurring nightmares (remember "Still of the Night"?), and it certainly isn't the best, either. But this being an erotic thriller that fails both with the eroticism and with the thrills, we have to content ourselves with whatever interest the plot holds. And it does hold some, mainly due to the metaphysical angle (psychokinetic connection, or something like that, bonds the two leads) that's rare for a Shannon Tweed flick. Andrew Stevens directs, and he gives an unusually bright, richly colored look to the film. But he can't do anything about the ludicrous, hard-to-swallow final "twist". (*1/2)
