Wes Craven Presents:They ★½ They 2002 (PG-13)

Maybe Wes should stop presenting this stuff and start writing and directing it again. It might turn out better. Derivative horror flick has psych grad student Julia (Regan) visited by childhood friend and fellow nightmare sufferer Billy, who tells her that something's after them. She doesn't believe him until her old nightmares return and spooky things start happening. Starts off genuinely creepy and appropriately scary, but loses itself in cliches and other plot devices you've seen done better elsewhere. Regan gives a good debut performance, though. 100m/C VHS, DVD . US Laura Regan, Marc Blucas, Ethan (Randall) Embry, Dagmara Dominczyk, Jon Abrahams, Jay Brazeau, Alexander Gould; D: Robert Harmon; W: Brendan William Hood; C: Rene Ohashi; M: Elia Cmiral.
