At Sunnydale High, out of a student's book big spiders emerge & attack him ... Enough to alert Buffy Vampire Slayer (Sarah Michelle Gellar), her mentor Giles (Anthony Stewart Head) & her friends Xander (Niächolas Brendon) & Willow (Alyson Hannigan. When they wuestion him at the hospital, they learn this was his worst nightmare come to life ... & other students too find their nightmares come to life, the only common factor being that young Billy Palmer (Jeremy Foley) is always found nearby ... Thing is, Billy's body lies in a coma, while his astral projection seems to produce all the nightmares.

When Buffy confronts the little boy though, she learns it is not his fault at all but he was beaten up so badly that his comatose nightmares set free the Ugly One, a sort of demonic Boogeyman whom Billy thinks to have beaten him up - & now he's after Billy, & if getting him should mean to destroy the fabric of reality as we know it as well, all the better ...

While trying to defend Billy, Buffy finds herself at the graveyard all of a sudden, & she has to face her arch-nemesis the Master (Mark Metcalf) - & loses, being turned into a vampire herself. Only with the greatest of efforts can she keep herself from biting her friends Giles, Xander & Willow as they rush to the hospital with Astral Billy, to finally wake up the real Billy ... & everything is back to normal again, including Buffy, Vampire having turned back to Buffy, Vampire Slayer.

& in the hospital too, they can capture the man who was really responsible for beating Billy up, his baseball coach (Brian Pietro) ...

Andrew J.Ferchland makes yet another pointless appearance as the Anointed One (see episode Never Kill a Boy on a First Date), Dean Butler plays Buffy's father.


In case you habven't already guessed, this is a toned down tv-friendly copy of A Nighmare on Elm Street, with most of this movie's pulp-surrealism gone in favour of a number of easy recognizable horror-clichés ... however, this Buffy-episode is not entirely without entertainment values, deespite the very unsubtle ending where the baseball coach turns out to be the real villain.
