BAD DREAMS (Slasher Classics Collection) Available Now on Dual-Format Blu-ray & DVD from 88 Films

After the success of A Nightmare on Elm Street in 1984, many a movie that moulded together slasher thrills and supernatural chills was rushed into production – from Slaughterhouse Rock (1988) to The Horror Show (1989) and Wes Craven’s own Shocker (1989). None, however, were quite as notable nor as notorious as the bombastic blood-spiller Bad Dreams from 1987, which roped in its own Freddy Krueger alumni with sexy scream queen starlet Jennifer Ruben (A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors).

Also starring the late, great B-thespian Richard Lynch (Cut and Run) as a Jim Jones-style reverend who begins to avenge his creepy cult of followers from beyond-the-grave, Bad Dreams features some frantic and ferocious special effects, plenty of tormented teens and some of the finest frights of its decade!

Featuring the legendary Bruce Abbott (Re-Animator) and produced by Hollywood heavyweight Gale Anne Hurd (Aliens), whilst featuring a screenplay from Die Hard’s Steven E. de Souza, it is no wonder that Bad Dreams became one of the most popular slasher classics of the 1980s. 88 Films is proud to present this work of gruesome genius in horrific HD! It might just stop you getting a good night’s sleep…
