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
From what we've heard, quite a bit of Stephen King's DREAMCATCHER was lost in the translation from the page to the screen; but not having read it, we were free to enjoy the movie as a creature feature involving, among other things, slimy, toothy worms that issue forth, in a crescendo of blood and gas, from their victims' recta. There hasn't been this much tension generated in an `Aliens Have Come To Take Our Planet' movie since HOWARD THE DUCK! (Although we had to wonder what director Lawrence Kasdan - who made such high-toned dramas as THE BIG CHILL and THE ACCIDENTAL TOURIST - was thinking about as he set up the scene with the alien in the toilet.)

Get ready for Bad Movie delirium as four friends (Thomas Jane, Jason Lee, Damian Lewis, and Timothy Olyphant) head up to a remote cabin in snowy Derry, Maine, as they've done every year for the last twenty years. The area, it so happens, is under paramilitary quarantine; rogue commander Morgan Freeman is trying to isolate and destroy a vicious race of galactic visitors, though decades of E.T. hunting have left him a few pennies short of a dollar. This is a heartening return to villainy for Freeman - let's not forget his breakthrough role as a heartless pimp in 1987's STREET SMART. But 1987 was a long time ago, and Freeman, working against dozens of noble past performances, just seems more irritable than usual.

The four guys have telepathic gifts, passed on to them by Donnie Wahlberg, a mentally challenged kid they once saved from bullies. (Don't ask). Sometimes these gifts manifest themselves in interesting forms, as when Damian Lewis "calls" Thomas Jane on a handgun borrowed from ambivalent soldier Tom Sizemore.

This is hands down the best movie I have seen in a long time, and I'm shocked to find such a plethora of negative reviews! I am a gigantic sci-fi/horror/alien fan, and am usually hyper-critical of plot tightness, dialogue, special effects, etc. Perhaps my immense enjoyment of this film had something to do with the fact that I was expecting nothing going into it...I had vaguely heard of the book/movie, but had no idea what it was about and no idea what anyone else thought of it. I can understand why some people who had read the book may have been let down, but you have to remember that it's impossible to translate EVERYTHING into a movie. That's why there are two separate formats, and that's why they should be viewed as two separate entities. I can tell you that from the completely objective standpoint of a sci-fi lover who went in with no expectations, this movie is AMAZING!!!
I thought the combination of character development, eerie foreboding, metaphoric imagery, suspenseful fighting, awesome special effects, and flat-out gross monster action was perfect! In particular, the acting of the characters Jonesy and Duddits was incredible. Yeah it was kind-of funny that Mr. Gray had a high-society british accent, but to me the "why" of it didn't really matter. I just enjoyed the golem-esque banter inside Jonesy's head, and thought the circular "memory warehouse" was an unbelieveably cool idea. I found that there was just the right amount of plot left up to your imagination, and just the right amount was very solidly explained. I'm also very glad that the director chose to not use the "original ending," as the one he used was much more satisfying.
