Editorial Reviews

Claire Cooper dreams strange things from time to time. One night, she dreams about a little girl being taken away by a stranger, right in her neighbourhood. When her own daughter Rebecca is kidnapped and murdered only a little later, Claire is sure about the chilling truth that her and the killer's mind are connected to each other in dreams. But nobody believes her being able to foresee the killer's next steps, as she could with her own daughter. In addition, the nervous breakdown she suffers gets her into a mental facility after a suicide attempt. And here, locked away in a padded cell, she dreams of her husband being murdered

4.0 out of 5 stars Watching Nightmares August 16, 2004
What a wonderfully bizarre thriller this is! Annette Benning's performance alone makes it worth watching - but there is still so much more. The story is so unsettling you never quiet get your grip once the film starts moving. From the opening credits - where a ghost town becomes submerged as a reservoir to the jump-out-of-your-seat ending, this one is a real keeper. The photography and set pieces are absolutely beautiful and do much put the viewer in Benning's head. A wild, frightening trip.

5.0 out of 5 stars True Horror June 5, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
"In Dreams" is the most terrifying movie i have ever seen, peroid. Everything in the movie has this stange reluctant quality, showing just enough for the viewer to crave more, yet at the same time producing an eerie fear for what is ahead. The story, thought a bit convoluted, takes the viewer hostage from the very beginning when the curiousity builds as the depths of an underwater town is being explored. Till the credits roll, and you are release, yet yearning to become the victim once again, just for a little longer. The acting is terrific especially from Benning who portaits the other side of sanity so convincingly, it gave me chills. She a character of need, and us, the mute witness, want to give her the assurance she so desperately longs for. Downey is great in his brief roll. He will scare you on a much more primative level, he almost seems too comfortable in this role. The imagery is great, the fixation with apples and nursery rhymes add to the atmosphere, feeding the unbridal terror that continues to build throughout the movie. Watching it is like walking through a peaceful meadow, feet gently dancing across the soft grass, slowly becoming trapped in a small room feet cold against the harsh floor. "In Dreams" gets to you on every level, this movie is not for everyone, but if you want to see a movie that will disturb, intrigue and terrify you, "In Dreams" is the movie for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Saturated colorful fury... June 9, 2005
In Dreams is an extremely surreal movie shot in beautiful colors and unforgettable imagery. Quite shocking and violent, the scenes will stay with you for days after viewing this. Annette Benning gives a top notch preformance she IS Claire!!!!And Robert Downey Jr. gives a chilling preformance as Vivian, the confused villan.Highly reccomended nail biter...just wait until the climax at the end on the bridge...

5.0 out of 5 stars Within the Mind's Eye February 12, 2003
The fabrics from which dreams are woven can be horrendous, and more catastrophic still when the visions return to the fertile grounds of your mind night after chaotic night. This point is made even more pronouncedly when the dreams happen to be about things that are occurring or are going to happen, especially when they teeter on the edge of insanity, or, as is the case with Claire, on areas that hit close to home. For several nights now she has been seeing visions of an apple orchard and a figure leading a little girl through it, leading her to believe that the child in her mind might well be a little girl that has gone missing. So, with an outstretched mentality, her mind goes searching, looking for something which she can clamp onto. Unfortunately for her, the mirror sometimes has a darker side, one that can peer into the mind that dreams visions, and that hands that can effectively whittle away many of the pieces that lead a person toward happiness, security, and the warmth that we like to call home.
In dreams had some beautiful depictions within it, capturing the aura of a town floating beneath waters unleashed by river diversion, showing a person in the first few minutes that it had a surreal feeling to it and that there was the ability to seem frightfully eerie running laps through its veins. This was further accented by the visions that were seen throughout the film, those of children and a past foretold in the shadows of a nursery rhyme wearing a shroud of insane speech and garble imagery, keeping its viewer enmeshed in the tale that was being portrayed upon the screen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Such Sweet Dreams November 12, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Add Annette Benning to that long list of performances that didn't get nominated for, let alone, win an Oscar. Annette is simply stunning in this Neil Jordan thriller that got lost in 1998 and did not receive the acclaim it should have.
"In Dreams," based on the book "Doll's Eyes" by Bari Wood, is a haunting, and sometime disturbing, film. Annette plays a woman who has been haunted by strange dreams all of her life, sharing the life of a serial killer, played quite convincingly by Robert Downey, Jr. Aidan Quinn plays her husband, and in a delightful but short role, Pamela Payton-Wright shines as Benning's sanitorium roommate, Ethel.
The film abounds in delicious imagery, focusing on apples and Snow White. The terror mounts subtly, and is quite chilling. When Annette learns the fate of her daughter, Rebecca, she gives one of the most effective expressions of grief captured on film. Later, when she is being questioned by psychiatrist Stephen Rea, she blows you away with her attempt to be in control, when she obviously is not. A totally stunning tour de force for Annette.
Her performance alone makes this a five-star movie, although I would have appreciated a more detailed explanation for why her character shares this psychic link with Downey. Also, her relationship with her husband is not totally fleshed out. And how did Downey's character survive living in an abandoned orchard? Those questions' resolutions would have made this an absolutely perfect five stars. But, nonetheless, "In Dreams" is the kind of thriller that stays with you even after the credits have finished.
Also, kudos to Jordan for his use of songs in the movie. "If," "Ebb Tide," "Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree," and Roy Orbison's title theme, are haunting and sure beats the rock crap we have to put up with most of today's movies.
Watch this and enjoy a really different thriller!

2.0 out of 5 stars Decent story line but the acting was surprisingly bad.
Big stars seemed poorly cast. Annette Benning (sp?) and Robert Downey Jr just didn't flow well in this movie. I really wanted to like it but it just didn't work.
