Dream Lover is a 1986 American thriller film about a woman who undergoes sleep deprivation therapy after being attacked in her apartment - with unexpected results. The film was directed by Alan J. Pakula, and stars Kristy McNichol, Ben Masters, and Joseph Culp.[1]

The film was not well received by critics. Movie historian Leonard Maltin called it "Abysmal...an intriguing concept is torpedoed by snaillike pacing and sterile atmosphere. What Alfred Hitchcock could have done with this!"

Despite a popular misconception, Bobby Darin's song of the same title is not used in the movie.
