Diana is a high class young woman with a troubled past, who is on the verge of marrying the caddish Oliver. Spending the night in her old and spooky family mansion, Diana stares into a mirror and begins experiencing terrifying dreams. She sees her past, present and future, while at the same time entering a dark dimension of her own. One day Diana is visited by her friend Jenny, an American tourist and also a victim of a turbulent past. Without knowing how or why, Diana suddenly pulls Jenny into her nightmarish world. Dream Demon is one of those cult gems Sam Raimi & co often talk about, one of those movies that are part of the genre film pantheon. Dream Demon was directed by Harley Cokeliss, who was, among others, the assistant director of The Empire Strikes Back). It marked the debut of Jemma Redgrave (niece of…) and confirmed the talent of a young promising actor called Timothy Spall. When we heard that this 80ties classic got a restoration on glorious 2K, we couldn’t resist the temptation to stage a retro screening at the BIFFF!
