Bad Dreams -- In the mid-1970s the members of the love cult Unity Fields sought “the ultimate joining” by doung themselves with gasoline and committing mass suicide. A young girl blown clear of the fiery exploon was the only survivor. Thirteen years later, Cynthia (Jennifer Rubin, Screamers) awakens from a coma inde a psychiatric hospital with only buried memories of that horrific day — but now her fellow patients are each being driven to their own violent suicides. Has the sect’s leader (Richard Lynch, Deathsport) returned to claim his final child?
