Apparently the target audience was people who had experienced "night terrors" as children; whether or not adults experience this psychological impediment isn't made clear. As someone who never had such experiences it was difficult for me to latch onto the terror aspect the filmmakers were trying to convey.
Most of the movie seemed as cold and clinical as the Masters degree oral defense she was preparing for.
The plot implies that all children who experienced night terrors will someday end up in bogey land but they completely failed to establish the supernatural foundation for this premise or for the entire movie for that matter.

so the movie seems to float effortlessly towards the inevitable disappearance of our heroine and her childhood friends; end of story.

the gimmick of pulling a 4" wooden peg out of her skull made no sense whatsoever, especially since none of her other friends had made mention of being marked in such a manner except for the red blotches.

I can't even say that this film is episodic; but if it is, it is only marginally so.
No explanation is offered about the entities that abduct their victims, what becomes of them, etc.

The film not only lacks a foundation; half the house is missing as well. Where are we going with all this?
That in itself is a tragic ending; when the audience is left emotionally untouched and completely detached.

Predictable but still creepy and scary. The movie's plot line is familiar but the unanswered questions of who or what "they" are saves the movie, leaving the viewer unsettle. The critique of the psuedo science of psychology is contrasted well with the ambiguity of what is real evil and what is insanity. The failure of reason, along with archetypal fears of closed spaces, dark tunnels, trains, water, and slimy unseen creatures who scitter about like large primeval insects are all classically frightening.

The key to whether you will enjoy this film or not is based purely on what you require out of a horror flick to enjoy it. For instance, with me, when it comes to horror flicks, it's necessary that good defeats evil, and that we eventually find out what the evil was, and why it was there. If you're anything like me, well, you won't like the film, because it gives you none of that. There's no background to the threat, no reason for the threat to exist, no explanation of why the threat exists, and all it really says is "life sucks." There's not even a "life sucks, get over it" feeling. It's just a "life sucks" film.

So, why then does it get 2 stars? Well, if Craven had put an extra 15 minutes into the film and explained everything, given an origin and an eventual end to the threat/evil/horror (and I don't even care if it's crazy talk, like Scientology or Giant Pink unicorns taking over the galaxy--it's a horror movie. You give up your right to reality once you start watching), and had even the smallest dash of hope at the end, it could EASILY have been a 4 star film. The acting was superb. The build up of suspense and release were excellent throughout, but as I said in the first paragraph, that's all there is. There's no explanation what the threat is, no idea in the least as to what the threat is, or how it exists, or how it can be defeated, or, or, or... And it has a crappy, lack of an ending. It's not as bad as a 1 star because there WERE good features to the film, and if all you wanted to do was be scared, well, it accomplished that. For those who ask for a bit more out of a film (read: I, the reviewer, require quite a bit more out of a film to call it good), skip it. Really... don't waste your time. Pop on over to the HBO documentary series of Autopsy, or pull up some forensic files. At least then you'll get some answers.

Format: DVD
Fear of the dark is a common phobia but it's not real. It's in the mind. Or is it? This movie tries to make a case for basing that fear in reality. Doesn't do such a hot job of it.

Here's the scoop. Julia young, (Laura Regan looking like a young Mia Farrow) while knocking on the door of her Masters in Psychology, is in the presence of one of her patients, Billy, who suffers from night terrors when he kills himself. As she herself suffered the same malady as a child she's traumatized by the event. She meets two of his friends at the funeral who reiterate Billy's feeling that that the fear is not irrational but that beings 'on the other side' target victims and, at some time, drag them over. Strange events begin to suggest he might be right.

There are some reviewers who want to champion this film and I can see why. A person wrestling with personal demons and trying to determine fantasy from reality makes for a good story. Somehow, though, this just didn't come off. This sort of thing has been done before and I always liked the way the better versions see-sawed the case of reality vs. insanity. Here they didn't make enough case for her going off the deep end, so I pretty much figured the 'other side' was real. Plus: Here they needed the constant rain, and threats of New York City summer power outages to facilitate a dark setting where the demons can emerge. What if your in some place where those aren't an issue? Do the demons leave those kids alone? Too many issues like that in the movie. Things did ramp up in the third act and I found myself more involved. Maybe because the threat was becoming more palpable. And the final scene was genuinely nifty.

This is generally acted and directed well. All the production values were as good as they needed to be. It just needed a better script to put it over the top.
