This week at Trailers from Hell, Dan Ireland talks about the 1988 cult fantasy film "Paperhouse," on which Ireland also worked as executive producer.

An ailing schoolgirl's sketches become disturbingly real in her dreams. Bernard Rose's debut film is an unnerving fantasy nightmare, based on Catherine Storr's juvenile novel "Marianne Dreams," that deserves to be better known. Its Lewtonesque dream psychology recalls "The Curse of the Cat People" as well as "Night of the Hunter," "Invaders from Mars," and even the more recent "The Hole."

    Thanks for this. Great film. Rose needs to be critically re-examined.
