SYNOPSIS: Vietnam vets suffer from PTSD dreams in this combination of Nightmare on Elm Street and Missing in Action. The film starts off with a flashback to Vietnam as two soldiers "Trent" and "Jim" are methodically tortured in a jungle shack by a fellow US soldier turned enemy. The duo are able to escape but have no choice but to leave behind their pal "Josh". This decision will haunt the men for the rest of their lives. They each have ultra realistic dreams in which they wake up with bleeding injuries. They also hallucinate seeing Josh when they're awake. He pleads with the men to come back and save him. Both men become convinced they can rescue Josh by going to sleep in full combat gear and bring a buttload of weapons. Their version of Freddy Kruger is "McGregor" (Steve Horton giving a way over-the-top performance) as the turncoat soldier. He cackles and taunts them as they try over and over again to save their friend. Clearly a low budget entry, the film moves along quickly with plenty of jungle shoot-outs and explosions. Top billed Dan Haggerty only has a few scenes as a sympathetic psychiatrist who initially thinks the ex soldiers are delusional.
