A decent horror film, that lacks a bit of punch to truly excel. The COVID/lockdown scenes felt a little preachy, the tension during the nightmares wasn't really there and the creature simply wasn't as menacing as it should've been. It's not all bad, it's just those finishing touches that were missing.
When Monique gets a distressing call from an old friend, she breaks her bubble and goes to see her. Mavis is suffering from nightmares that feature an eerie figure. When Monique stays over the same figure begins to haunt her dreams. They seek the help of a demonologist, but she has terrible news for them.
The soundtrack is effective, there are some strong images here and the lore is pretty interesting. The performances are solid too, but it's just not as tense or creepy as I'd expected it to be. It's still decent post-Halloween horror filler, it's just that the potential was there to do better.
