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.

A sort of intriguing thriller with a mismatched couple.
27 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

This appears to be a low-budget film with B-list actors, a story where Moira Davis (Shannon Tweed) is married to an adulterous, abusive husband (Joe Cortese). Her only haven is a reoccurring dream where she meets a mysterious lover, not knowing that the lover, Nick Richardson (Andrew Stevens), is having the same dream. Soon, they both meet and begin an affair, but faces the threat of her husband.

The movie plot of the abusive husband almost resembles that of "Sleeping with the Enemy" with Julia Roberts, with the erotic dreams angle making it different. The story can be suspenseful at times, especially the plot about the crazy abusive husband, but the love affair between Davis and Richardson takes a long while to develop and the chemistry between them is a little awkward. The couple actually looks mismatched.

The acting wasn't very good, but the overall plot was a bit intriguing. At an hour and a half, the movie can be engaging at times and they aren't much boring fillers. It can be a good one just to pass the time with, but don't expect a masterpiece or an award-winning material.

Grade C+
