Synopsis: A young man disturbed by nightmares of monsters and his own past finds professional help, but it may not be the help he needs. He pursues his dreams and finds a whole new reality in Midian, where the monsters go.
There are a bunch of things I really liked about this movie: the camera work and editing in the opening sequence was very good, casting Cronenberg as a shrink was spectacular, setting the film in Calgary was cool, and trussing up a hostage in Christmas lights was hilarious.
It's a very campy, sometimes funny, little horror wannabe that reminded me a lot of "Angel" from the television series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer".Added 31 March 2003 at 9:08 PM
