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.

Customer Reviews

Well developed with good acting and special effects.
KenWa
This movie is one of the worst adaptations of a Stephen King novel that I have seen to date.
Susan
The movie just misses way too much of the story and the ending is completely horrible.

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.

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.

Format: DVD
We've all seen Hollywood ruin some of Stephen King's most engrossing novels, but we can't blame Hollywood too much for this cinematic disaster. Dreamcatcher is just a lousy story; it pains me to say it, as no one loves and respects Stephen King more than I do, but this has to be the worst story idea that ever came out of his usually brilliant mind. I'm ashamed to say I have yet to read the actual novel, but it seems pretty clear to me that - assuming the novel actually tells a coherent story with King's usually impressive characterization - it would be extremely difficult if not impossible to transform it into a good movie. The metaphors this film attempts to emulate die horrible deaths when removed from King's original pages, tempting the viewer to actually laugh at the way they are portrayed onscreen. If you thought Herman's Head was silly (hey - I actually liked Herman's Head), wait until you how this film handles that whole mindspeak thing. The harsh, regrettable truth is that Dreamcatcher is just a thoroughly ridiculous movie.

We start out with four thirty-something, clearly weird buddies. Each possesses some kind of gift, such as the ability to read others' minds. I got the impression they were all some sort of test subjects in a black ops project during their youth. I was quite wrong about that, as they actually owe their uncommon abilities to their friendship long ago with a mentally challenged young man named Duddits. The guys all head out to a mountain cabin every winter to think about their good friend, yet none of them has apparently bothered to see or even speak to him in twenty years - uh, OK. Back in the cabin, the guys have barely begun comparing their individual oddities and exchanging movie trivia when the snow starts to hit the fan.

Format: DVD
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 lost...by 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.
