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 to The Horror Show and Wes Craven’s own Shocker. 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.

Prolific B-movie maverick Bill Rebane opted for some contemporary ‘real world’ horror carnage and caught wind of the slice and dice craze with his classic Blood Harvest. Unleashed at a time when the slasher movie was awash with sequels, Blood Harvest stood out thanks to a lunatic performance from Tiny Tim; the legendary American television personality who offers up a creepy and instantly-cult sing-song scene.
