Kodiak’s review published on Letterboxd:
I was trying to find Bad Dreams, which is also a 1988 slasher-ish horror with “dreams” in the title and a runtime of approximately 80 minutes, and thought I found it on YouTube, but on closer inspection it turned out to be Deadly Dreams instead, but I said fuck it and watched it because it was on my watchlist anyway. I kind of wish I had watched Bad Dreams instead. Not that this isn’t good, because it’s actually decent enough, but after watching The Slayer earlier, I was in the mood for a better dream-killer movie, and this just wasn’t a good enough substitute for that. It’s more of a psychological thriller, despite some cool nightmare sequences. The wolf mask is pretty cool too.
