Jen has headaches and nightmares and she returns to Dr. Reese... Written by

This was the opening movie at Frightfest Glasgow one year.
And you can see why they would open with this, because it is just not very good. (they tend to start with the weaker movies, to build up. smart)
One of the stories is pretty good, at least better than the others, but all in all this is a little bit of a mess. We get some half way disturbing images, some bizarre stuff. But it's just not even close to cool enough.
Understandable, as the directors (Q&A) talked about how this idea had come to them at a pub, over a lot of beers. Yeah, maybe skip the ideas that come from beer next time, yeah?
One of the story has some originality to it, but mostly, the movie as a whole, just wants to be original, without actually being original.
