CINEMA VILLAINS/SIDEDOOR CINEMA PRESENT:
Francis Delia, 1981. USA.
Two scientists experiement on a sleeping woman, giving her jolts of electricity in order to produce surreal, haunting, and erotic dreams.
Co-written by Jerry Stahl (a/k/a: Herbert W. Day), best known for his memoir Permenant Midnight, who also worked on everything from ALF to Twin Peaks. And directed by Steven Sayadian (a/k/a: Rinse Dream) who would later give the world both Cafe Flesh and Dr. Caligari. Nightdreams, like so many of the best midnight films, blurs the line between wake and sleep to a frightening degree. Erotic phantasmagoria with a psychedelic soundtrack and startling imagery to boot.
