Paperhouse (1988)

Type :   Production countries :  


While suffering from glandular fever, 11-year-old Anna Madden draws a house. Disturbingly, when she falls asleep, she has dreams about what she draws. During her feverish dreams, she finds herself visiting the place. When she draws a face at the window, on her next visit she finds a crippled boy named Marc living in the house. From her doctor's conversation it turns out that Marc is a real person.

Anna sketches her father into the drawing so that he can help carry Marc away, but she inadvertently gives him an angry expression which she then crosses out, and the father (who has been away a lot and has a drinking problem, putting a strain on Anna's parents' marriage) appears in the dream as a furious, blinded ogre. Anna and Marc defeat the monster and shortly afterwards Anna recovers, although the doctor reveals that Marc's condition is deteriorating.

Anna's father returns home and both parents seem determined to get over their marital difficulties. The family goes on holiday by the sea. Anna, who had drawn a lighthouse into her sketch as a refuge from the sinister house, and had also supplied a helicopter to rescue Marc, visits a lighthouse on the edge of a cliff at the seaside and sees a helicopter overhead while Marc's voice invites her to join him. A rope ladder dangles from the helicopter, drawing Anna dangerously close to the edge of the cliff. Anna's parents arrive in time to prevent her falling.
