Storyline

Drew is a young woman who drives to a small town she has never been to while in a trance. A year ago in this town Laura, who looked just like Drew, was murdered. Everyone assumed that Laura's boyfriend Teddie who went missing at the same time as the murder had done it, but Drew starts having dream sequences and trances that imply otherwise. Gradually through investigation and with the guidance of more visions from Laura, Drew uncovers the story behind the murders. Written by gagewyn

Dumb non-starter
10 June 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

NIGHTSCREAM is one of those insipid made-for-TV movies that seem primarily aimed at the middle aged American housewife who doesn't want too much in the way of sex, violence, or controversy in her TV scheduling. As such it's an entirely insipid affair, a dumb non-starter of a film that suffers from dull plotting and an almost entire lack of emotion and incident in the storyline.

The tale begins as a young woman finds herself in a small town still suffering from the consequences of a horrific murder that took place exactly a year before. It turns out that the murder victim looked EXACTLY the same as this new visitor, and that she's blessed (or cursed) with flashback memories of events building up to the tragic event. It soon transpires that the killer may still be on the loose after all this time.

It's not necessarily a bad set-up but it never goes anywhere and that's what makes this film so frustrating. It's full of bog-standard acting (including from a youthful Casper Van Dien), stereotyped characters, an almost wilful lack of suspense. The supernatural elements are deliberately toned down throughout, leaving this a decidedly lukewarm effort.
