FROM IMDB COMMENTS:
Warning: possible spoilers! ::As with many films released in Hollywood over the years, this one is a victim of having a title that has no significance to the actual plot. “Bad Dreams” is just a flashy title to lure viewers, making them think it’s another Elm Street ripoff. Forget about Elm Street. Watch this one with an open mind. The only similarities it has to Elm Street three are these: A burned up psycho, a mental hospital (in which the patients are much more believable than the ones of NOES 3) and Jennifer Rubin. That’s where the similarities end. The heroine of the film is not, in fact, having dreams, but hallucinations. You never once see her go to sleep and dream of this guy, he just shows up (usually conveniently after she’s taken her meds. Hmmmm!) It is an excellent and smart psychological thriller, and completely underrated. And Dean Cameron, as always, is excellent, lovable, and funny in the role of Ralph, a horny teenager suffering from borderline personality disorder.
