A Nightmare Come True

Christopher Leitch (1996)

15 Certificate


Our Score
This reasonable TV-movie thriller opts for psychological chills rather than standard suspense. Katy Boyer plays the newly trained nurse who moves back in with her parents (Gerald McRaney and Shelley Fabares) and discovers that their constant bickering provokes some unpleasant childhood memories. It's well played by the cast and director Christopher Leitch, best known so far for family films such as Courage Mountain and Teen Wolf Too, handles the proceedings with aplomb.


A nurse tries to persuade her mother to leave her cruel father, but has little success. On another visit home, it seems she has finally taken her advice and left. But when the nurse starts to suffer horrific recurring nightmares, she becomes certain her mother has been murdered. Psychological thriller, starring Katy Boyer, Gerald McRaney and Shelley Fabares.
