Diana (Jemma Redgrave) is only days away from marrying Oliver (Mark Greenstreet) when she starts having bad dreams, bad dreams that have to do with the wedding and more specifically with Oliver - which might just be caused by her nervousness regarding the wedding, especially since she's still a virgin, so even her therapist (Susan Fleetwood) doesn't give it that much thought. Now OIiver is a bit of a war hero, which would make this a celebrity wedding, which in the UK can only mean one thing: Paparazzi. And one day, Diana runs into two particularly fierce ones, Peck (Timothy Spall) and Paul (Jimmy Nail), and is only just "saved" by Jenny (Kathleen Wilhoite), an American woman about her age who claims to have been brought up in the house Diana has only recently moved into, but has lost her memories about these days so is looking for something to trigger them. Diana takes an instant liking in Jenny, and the two become best friends pretty much over night.

Diana dreams of Peck entering her home, but somehow she manages to throw him into a bottomless pit, and ... the next day Paul shows up all inquisitive claiming Peck has disappeared. Later Jenny finds herself almost lost in one of Diana's dreams, and hadn't she woken Diana up, who knows what might have happened. But in that dream, Jenny has also found clues linked to her own past. Diana and Jenny find out that the line between dream and reality has become very fleeting of late, which causes Jenny to give up wanting to find out about her own youth and pack up to leave the country - but instead she gets drawn into another of Diana's dreams. And since nobody, including Oliver, really takes her seriously, Diana has to realize it's up to her and her alone to save Jenny - if she only had the first idea how ...

 

Now the title's already a bit of a giveaway, this movie owes more than a little to the then current A Nightmare on Elm Street series, with slight shades of the then even more current Hellraiser, and while not on par with either, the film still manages to tell a rather original and engaging story, heavy on atmosphere, filled with macabre details, and carried by a solid ensemble. And while this might not be a film that's likely to stick with you for a long time, you might rather enjoy while watching it at least.
