Dream No Evil
REBEL YELL • Horror, Drama
Academy Award-winner Edmond O'Brien ('The Wild Bunch', 'The Barefoot Contessa') stars in this understated but deeply affecting tale of melancholy and madness from cult auteur John Hayes. Orphaned at a young age, Grace (Brooke Mills) has grown up under the sway of her adopted brother Jesse (Michael Pataki) for whose travelling evangelist act she performs by leaping from a high diving board. But when she learns that she may have a lead on the whereabouts of her long-lost father (O'Brien), Grace's desperation to be reunited with him leads to a disastrous - and deadly - mental unravelling. Originally filmed under the title of 'The Faith Healer, Dream No Evil' - which also features famed character actor Marc Lawrence in a memorable turn as an undertaker-cum-pimp - is perhaps the most overlooked entry in a trio of horror films made by the late John Hayes, which also includes genre favourites 'Grave of the Vampire' and 'Garden of the Dead'.
