Editorial Reviews

Bad Dreams: In the mid-1970s the members of the love cult Unity Fields sought the ultimate joining by dousing themselves with gasoline and committing mass suicide. A young girl blown clear of the fiery explosion was the only survivor. Thirteen years later, Cynthia (Jennifer Rubin, Screamers) awakens from a coma inside a psychiatric hospital with only buried memories of that horrific day: but now her fellow patients are each being driven to their own violent suicides. Has the sect’s leader (Richard Lynch, Deathsport) returned to claim his final child? Bruce Abbott ( Re-Animator) co-stars in the intense shocker Bad Dreams from director Andrew Fleming ( The Craft) and producer Gale Anne Hurd ( Punisher: War Zone, The Incredible Hulk).

Visiting Hours: Academy Award winner Lee Grant (Best Supporting Actress in 1975 for Shampoo) stars as outspoken TV journalist Deborah Ballin, whose crusade against domestic violence enrages a creepy loner (a truly disturbing performance by Michael Ironside, Scanners) in Visiting Hours. He brutally attacks the anchorwoman in her home, but Ballin survives and is hospitalized. Her assailant is enraged; he is haunted by a horrific childhood trauma . . . and now he has hidden himself inside the hospital to finish what he started. Can anybody, including her concerned boss (William Shatner), a frantic nurse (Linda Purl, Happy Days) or Deborah herself, stop the psycho’s killing spree before it reaches sick new extremes?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great pairing of movies! February 20, 2012

1. BAD DREAMS...great 80's slasher / killer flick. Richard Lynch makes a good villian. We really enjoyed this film, I can recall seeing it on VHS back in the day. Very refreshing and nice plot twist, too. The supporting characters help this movie along and add a sense of slight comedic value and maybe a slight campiness that you just don't see done effectively in movies today.
2. VISITING HOURS....Michael Ironside is a fantastic villian! This really is a good companion to Bad Dreams as they are both "hospital" related. Lee Grant is a nice strong female lead as well. You really find yourself rooting for the victims...the plot is nicely paced and no 'dead' (pardon the pun) spots.
Definitely worth picking up this set.
For fans of 80's flicks before or at the start of the more over the top gore and violence. I (personally) enjoyed Visiting Hours more out of the two but they are both fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars great movie set October 20, 2011
Verified Purchase
I actually owned the original 2006 release, but sold this to get the set with Bad Dreams included also. Picture and sound are great on both. Don't pay a fortune for the 2006 release of visiting hours, when you can get this set for way cheaper. Glad to get this copy and have extra money in my pocket for doing so, plus a free movie in the deal

4.0 out of 5 stars Double feature of death October 13, 2012
Verified Purchase
Bad Dreams had some clever ideas and a realistic psychological ending that impressed me; I had not seen this gem until now. Hippie girl realizes that the Charles Manson-like cult leader (played by always sinsiter, always creepy Richard Lynch) in hoping to capitalize on his psychotic fantasies of a freaky commune in the after-life by setting everyone on fire; by accident, hippie girl survives the community suicide and wakes from a coma years later, only to be haunted by psychotic episodes of silky-sick Lynch, an incompetent police detective and an overzealous psychiatrist obsessed with the use of psycho-hallucenagenic drugs. What's real? What's not? What's Memorex? A fun, smart film. Charles Manson vs Sigmeund Freud in hippie girl's head.

Visiting Hours I saw this one when I was in high school. Michael Ironside (Scanners, V-The Final Battle and Starship Troopers) does creepy skullduggery like very few and he doesn't disappoint here, either. Linda Purl is the sexiest nurse ever captured on celluloid and made me apprecriate women in uniforms with ponytails like no other (wowzers!). William Shatner (on loan from T. J. Hooker and Star Trek II) does a subdued role in that crazy baby blue suit that would have made Murray Hamilton beam. Not necessarily a typical 80's slasher as much as a bloodier homage to Alfred Hitchcock and Dario Argento. Ironside becomes equally obsessed with two strong-willed womenfolk that challenge his sexual insecurities, but its the death mask of photos taken of his victims in his bedroom closet that creeps me out, and inspired the infamous one-sheet of the baleful skull over blackened hospital.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sick Hospital Double Feature! April 5, 2013
Verified Purchase
I've always wanted to see Visiting Hours based on the awesome commercials I saw as a kid with the lights in the hospital windows turning off until the ones left on resemble a skull! However, I figured when I finally saw it, it would be just another quickie slasher flick from the 80s. I was so wrong! It kept me on the edge of my seat, and veteran performers Lee Grant and William Shatner do a pretty good job. Michael Ironside, as always, is a sleazy sicko and he really shows off his stuff in Visiting Hours. There are surpising jolts and a few unexpected twists to a film that, sadly, got forgotten with other 80s slasher dreck.
Bad Dreams, often unfairly referred to as a ripoff of the Nightmare On Elm Street series, showcases another great cast. Bruce Abbott (usually overshadowed by Jeffery Comb's Herbert West in the Re-Animator movies) really shines as a psychiatrist with a heart. E.G. Daily, one of my favorite people of all time, plays one of the tormented patients and, sadly, has very little screen time. Richard Lynch is notably creepy as the evil cult leader, both looking normal and in that horrific burn makeup. The extras on Visiting Hours are pretty slight (a few TV spots,photos) but Bad Dreams has featurettes, interviews, and more, including the original ending. All in all, this is a great double feature and an awesome part of my horror collection. Highly recommended!
