    ★★★★½

    This kept me engaged throughout. I guessed who the killer was midway through the film, but I still enjoyed the ride. A complex, well thought out plot. I've read some reviews that claim this is a Dream Warriors rip-off, but I have to disagree. Dream Warriors was actually about dreams and had a supernatural assailant, while Bad Dreams is about hallucinations brought on by a very human villain using psychiatric and street drugs.

    Paddington is so super cute!!! I don't watch trailers, so it was a surprise to see him imprisoned. I liked that the writers chose to take this route, it adds something a little different than what you would expect of a typical family film sequel.

    Only downer for me: I take issue with Florence Pugh's character deciding to sacrifice her ex. I get that she's in great emotional pain, but I wonder if she will end up regretting her decision. Then again, it had to be someone, so why not someone she knows is an asshole?
    I loved this movie because I was able to connect with Florence Pugh's character from the beginning. I know what it's like to be gaslit and to stop trusting…
