YOU DON'T HAVE TO SLEEP TO DREAM

"Get out of my brain!"

Claire Cooper

In Dreams

Release Date: January 15, 1999

It was her dark illustration of childhood fables that lured him. It was her dreams of deadly premonitions he would come to own. Claire Cooper's (Annette Bening, American Beauty) peaceful family life takes a chilling turn when a mysterious serial killer (Robert Downey Jr., Tropic Thunder) invades her seemingly idyllic New England town... and haunts her dreams with dark clues to his next deadly moves.

With frightening accuracy, Claire predicts the killer's every turn, but still no one believes her. Unable to convince the police, her doctor (Stephen Rea) or even her husband (Aidan Quinn) of her mind-link with the madman, Claire must confront the killer alone—and on his terms—before another terrifying dream becomes a reality!

In Dreams was directed and co-written by Academy Award-winner Neil Jordan (who would later create, as well as write and direct on Amblin Television's The Borgias), based on the book Doll's Eyes, by Bari Wood.
