Quotes

Jamie: [to Pat who is looking for her car keys] It's about your boyfriend and that girl downstairs. She's not a girl: she's a succubus. That means she fucks men and then she kills them, not always in that order.

Just awful.
7 November 2012 | by (Carnival of Souls-ville) – See all my reviews

Dreamaniac may have the longest opening credits in horror movie history. Sadly, that's about the only thing it brings to the genre.

Adam is a musician who dabbles in the dark arts. He's supposed to be "heavy metal," I suppose, but he wears a Def Leppard shirt and has posters on his bedroom wall for both Jello Biafra and Poison, so who knows. One night while playing with his book of spells, he conjures a succubus named Lily who just happens to crash a party thrown by Adam's girlfriend's sister. There's lots of softcore sex, lingering shots of the bodies of the mostly unattractive males in the cast, very little blood and no reason for anyone to watch. I'm not even going to mention the stupid ending. Avoid.
