Audience Reviews for Beyond Dream's Door

A freshman effort from longtime B-horror director Jay Woelfel made while he was a student at Ohio State University and featuring a cast compromised by other students and faculty from the school. Clearly shot on a student budget and frequently clunky and over-written, with special effects that now look terribly crude and outdated. Still, there are clearly some good ideas here and it would be interesting to see what could be done with this screenplay given a real budget and modern technology. The plot centers on a demon that stalks and kills dreamers who have forgotten their dreams; there may be some Lovecraft influence here, though only in diluted measure. The flaws are obvious, but they leave enough to make the film watchable and only a little bit unintentionally funny, mainly due to the earnest performances and really, really bad poetry.

Beyond Dream's Door is a very unique and original film about a college student who has been repressing his nightmares all his life and suddenly he loses control of that and his nightmares are brought to life in the form of a big giant red monster that literally tears people apart that he knows. The movie suffers from a terribly low budget, problematic special effects, and poor acting, however it is fun to watch the monster kill people and all of the tacky looking blood being shot everywhere. The movie is a mixed bag, but probably worth a watch by any horror enthusiast.
