Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Ambitious but ultimately incoherent and frustrating tale that may be too cerebral for the horror genre crowds and too literal-minded for the genre's more intelligent viewers; lush visual style compensates only up to a point."
‑ Emanuel Levy, Variety
"Has a strange beauty, an intensely creepy atmosphere, and a grandly operatic feel."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Jordan drops his common sense so consistently here that much of In Dreams is fascinating."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"Overall, a mediocre film with a few adequately chilling moments."
‑ John R. McEwen, Film Quips Online
"Salient images fly free, thanks to Jordan's acute visual sense."
‑ Chuck Rudolph, Matinee Magazine
"The silliest thriller in many a moon!"
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"In Dreams harshly blends dreams with reality in a way that's both distorting and gratifying, but witnessing Claire's downward spiral is unintentionally humorous while the film completely loses focus and slowly inflates into illogical territory."
‑ Chris Sawin,
"Someday, Annette Bening is going to star in a movie that's as interesting and powerful as she can be as an actress."
‑ Judith Egerton, Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)
"A scary psychological thriller with a powerful finale."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"The best Jordan can muster after some early, genuine thrills is a few spooky underwater scenes and some close-ups of graphic violence."
‑ Darren D'Addario, Citysearch
"A memorably creepy and lyrical shocker full of spine-chilling scenes and moments!"
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"In dreams, this film would be a chilling exercise in psychological horror; in reality, it's a fascinating folly."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Pretty much falls into the bin with the many other serial killer movies made recently."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"So viscerally stimulating, interesting, & well-performed on the part of Annette Bening, & then it still fell right out of my head."
‑ Karina Montgomery, Cinerina
"A confused, atmospheric horror knockoff!"
‑ Lawrence Toppman, Charlotte Observer
