Editorial Reviews

Four young friends perform a heroic act and are changed forever by the uncanny powers they gain in return. Years later, on a hunting trip in the Maine woods, they are overtaken by a blizzard, a vicious storm in which something much more ominous moves. Challenged to stop a deadly alien force, they confront an unparalleled horror, with the fate of the world in the balance.

I completely disagree with the majority of the reviewers who didn't like this movie. I was held in suspense during the entire movie right up until the end. Many have found fault with certain "impossibilities" or logical flaws in the movie, but come on if you're going to watch a movie about telepathy and aliens how can you possibly start picking apart minute flaws? How can you accept an alien attack and mental telepathy yet complain about an alien British accent. Give me a break. Obviously the purpose of the British accent was to differentiate between Jonesy and Mr. Gray. A little weird maybe but give the director some slack. It seems like too many reviewers spent the entire time looking for flaws instead of letting themselves become wrapped up in the movie.
I thought the blizzard setting added a nice eerie, doom foreboding touch to a very suspenseful movie. I really enjoyed the way that the suspense was slowly, patiently and convincingly built throughout. When Jonesy found the lost hunter/farter you could feel that something was going to go wrong. Later when the car flipped, you really knew things were getting bad. The aliens coming out of the toilet and munching on the fingers and later body of the "glasses guy" made me jump.
I also felt that the film's use of flashbacks was a great technique for heightening the interest and filling in prior knowledge. The flashbacks were much more interesting than say just coming out from the beginning and explaining the clairvoyant aspects of the 4 main characters, and Duddys. As the plot progressed we began to fully understand what their powers were and how they came to possess them. The military portion/concept was perhaps a little clunky but necessary for the advancement of the plot.

5.0 out of 5 stars strangely , very appealing January 18, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There's just a cozy feeling to it. It's a constantly white-out snowing, Stephen King style, humor mixed with gore, great movie. And, I even like the story. Okay, it's not Great-Great, but really good. Especially when you have to stay inside (snow, flu, broken leg etc.).

Regardless, it's definitely worth a look. I never met anyone who just hated it. And if you don't love it, you'll probably just be glad to have seen it and move on to your next scary/funny, sunday/rainy movie.

But again, this is one of my favorite movies for some strange reason. Everybody's got a few of those, so I know you'll understand.

AND, you might want to buy it now, they're not producing this edition anymore and I already can't find it in a retail store.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dreamcatcher - as good as it could be...unfortunately September 18, 2006
Four friends gather in a winter wilderness lodge where they will hash over old times, compare their idiosyncrasies and somehow save the world from a race of voracious worm aliens. As boys, the four befriended an apparently mentally-challenged boy known to them as "Duddits" - in true Stephen King style, Duddits isn't all he seems, and he rewards his new friends with newfound powers - one guy can find whatever is anybody, another has a perfect memory (and can visualize it as a warehouse - remember that warehouse at the end of "Raiders"?), and so on. As adults they plan a weekend away in a forest cabin, chew the fat and compare notes about their powers. Their weekend reverie is cut short when it becomes clear that their stretch of woodland has become a battleground between the aforementioned body-snatching aliens and a covert military force that's been fighting off otherworldly aliens for years. Because the aliens here can control men's minds or even incubate within them, the ET-patrol sometimes finds itself drawing a bead on innocent human beings - and with these soldiers led with murderous efficiency by Morgan Freeman, "sometimes" becomes "every other hour". With nowhere to turn, our heroes soon find themselves using their powers against the alien beasties and the evil soldiers.

This was just an incredibly horrible movie. On the surface, it's probably diverting. You have to look a bit deeper if you want to get the "so bad it's fun" effect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five stars - for all the wrong reasons! July 20, 2005
Dreamcatcher almost gives 'Lifeforce' a run for its money in the greatest unintentional comedy ever made stakes. I had to rewind whole chunks of the movie to check my eyes weren't deceiving me: oh, if only I hadn't had the flu the one week it played over here - to have seen this one with an audience! After a solid opening its descent into insanity is so rapid and so unashamed that you could never mistake it for a good film but still end up loving it more than many an undisputed classic because it's just so much fun. At times you even find yourself wondering if Lawrence Kasdan made it as a drunken dare. If so, all I can say is get that man another dozen drinks, and fast!

This fantastic (in every sense) movie has everything - Ripleys and s**tweasels, Damian Lewis doing a comedy English accent whenever he's possessed by the alien 'Mr Grey', Morgan Freeman with crazy giant white eyebrows that even David Hemmings would have envied waxing lyrical about John Wayne's gun, Tom Sizemore seeing those aliens long before the effects boys put them in the picture, a s**tweasel trying to bite Timothy Olyphant's dick off, the toilet scene from hell and more farting in a single motion picture since Blazing Saddles. The only thing that was missing was the gratuitous nudity from Mathilda May, but hey, maybe they're holding that back for the sequel. I am truly content to live in a world where multinational corporations spend tens of millions of dollars on such films. Definitely the most joyful and entertaining film I've seen this year.

The DVD extras are nothing to write home about, but do watch out for one great outtake at the end of the deleted scenes section.

Worth watching, if only for Morgan Freeman's magnificent eyebrows. Some interesting twists and turns in the plot. Doesn't really end, just stops. Where is Dreamcatcher 2?

Classic Steven King...but this one has better acting than some, and the story line draws you in before it goes into creepy crawly. One of my favorites of his movies.
