Christopher Null from gave the film two stars out of five, stating, "The story never comes together, despite an intriguing performance from Bening as a complete nut job." Adam Goldberg from All Movie Guide gave it three stars out of five, commenting that the film "is a mildly suspenseful but disjointed thriller.... Ultimately, In Dreams is The Exorcist meets A Nightmare on Elm Street, but it simply lacks a new and terrifying take on the dream/reality premise."
