Please you found something to enjoy in it, Lee. (Apart from the lovely Olivia in rubber aspect, that is).

Yes. this trend towards the fantasy wanting to possess us/our world is puzzling. Perhaps it has something to do with our society's increasing blurring of the lines between "There" the fantasy world, and "Here", the real world - with the rise of virtual interaction and gaming?

Nice observation.

I dunno, equal parts the fear of becoming trapped in a dream plus the fact that fantasy worlds/dreams/virtual realities are supposed to be safe, escapist fun. To be attacked by something that should be harmless can have a powerful effect. In a way, it's not that different from Doctor Who's penchant for making the normal everyday thing into the frightening or unusual I suppose.
