A young man, Tom, has never been able to sleep well because he tends to wake up screaming from nightmares. Things get really bad on his 16th birthday. He starts to face demonic zombie-looking creatures one of whom is yellow with another being red. There's a great, more powerful demon involved here. Will Tom and his allies be able to stop the demons?

Even Better Second Feature

Young director Johnny Dickie continues to improve his filmmaking skills as both actor and director in his second feature, City of the Dream Demons. The movie is a hell of a lot of fun to watch. Johnny Dickie has a quite a bit of talent. City of the Dream Demons took awhile to produce, but it was certainly worth the wait. This film is gloriously low budget, and it revels in it. There's plenty of cheap blood and gore. The make-up isn't always magnificent, but it's still plentiful and is used creatively. I loved the sense of humor in here, like Tom's mother giving him a copy of his previous movie, Slaughter Tales, and not realizing he made it. Another hilarious moment was Tom using Slaughter Tales to threaten one of the demons as it would be so bad it would be true torture. The demon caving immediately was hilarious. I do love it when a director is willing to poke fun at themselves and doesn't take themselves to seriously. City of the Dream Demons is a very fun movie and I will be looking forward to Johnny Dickie's next feature effort. I give City of the Dream Demons a rating of 6 out of 10.
