DREAM DEMON is a supernatural horror film, from 1988, in which a woman dreams about demons who turn out to be real.

Violence

A woman slaps a man's face and his head flies off, a man's ear is torn off, and a woman's fist emerges through the back of a man's head after she punches him in the face. The scenes are accompanied by bloodspurts and injury detail, but occur within a fantasy context.

In one scene, a man accidentally sets himself on fire.

Threat and horror

There are several prolonged scenes in which people are threatened by monsters.

There is domestic abuse in scenes in which a man stalks his daughter before tying her up.

Nudity

In one scene, a naked woman with her breasts exposed lies next to a man in bed.

There is also strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder terms ('bitch', 'slut', 'dickhead', 'shit', 'bullshit', 'asshole', 'piss off', 'bastard', 'bloody', 'bleeding', 'goddamit', 'God', 'damn', 'hell', 'Jesus Christ'),

The film also contains a scene in which a man is hanged by a supernatural presence, moderate sex references, and brief references to sexual violence and drug misuse.
