A government funded project looks into using psychics to enter people’s dreams, with some mechanical help. When a subject dies in his sleep from a heart attack Alex Gardner (Dennis Quaid) becomes suspicious that another of the psychics is killing people in the dreams somehow and that is causing them to die in real life.
So, it’s not Freddy Krueger butchering teens in their sleep, but this movie adds a touch of action and sci-fi to the myth of dying in a dream causing death in reality. The special effects are dated, but it really doesn’t take much away from the film. George Wendt of cheers fame makes a few appearances throughout the movie as well.
