Directed by Mario Andreacchio
In this gripping Australian terror tale, a doctor is haunted by visions of murderous ghosts after an Aboriginal patient dies of mysterious causes. Refusing to sweep the death under the rug, Cathy soon uncovers a connection to her father’s recent archaeological dig and a vicious mass murder committed by whalers against Aboriginal islanders 200 years earlier. Even worse - the ghostly killers now appear to have set their sights on her! Daring in its exploration of historical Australian racism, THE DREAMING plays out like a vivid, terrifying nightmare captured on film.

Too bad about the low rating, the actual horror scenes and dream sequences were well done, and very creepy. It's the everything in between that makes this a mediocre affair - bad acting, monotonous pacing, and '80s fashion so terrible it's kind of painful to look at.
Yeah....I should have fast forwarded through this one.
Performances OK, production details were handled competently (soundtrack music did seem a bit louder than the dialogue, however), seemed to be about enough plot for a one-hour TV anthology episode, rather than a full feature. Like some other reviewers, I found the pace too leisurely for comfort. I also found none of the characters engaging, I sat and politely waited for the experience to finish.
I tried I really did but 41 minutes was too long! First Shudder fil that I couldn't sit through
Excellent movie. Incredibly thoughtful.
