Paperhouse ★★★ 1989

An odd fantasy about a young girl plagued by recurring dreams that begin to influence real life. Very obtuse, British-minded film with “Twilight Zone” feel that manages to capture genuine dreamness. Not for all audiences, but intriguing nontheless. Based on the novel “Marianne Dreams” by Catherine Storr. 92m/C VHS . GB Glenne Headly, Ben Cross, Charlotte Burke, Elliott Spiers, Gemma Jones, Sarah Newbold; D: Bernard Rose; W: Matthew Jacobs; M: Hans Zimmer, Stanley Myers.
