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.

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.

Seems to chop up the story from the Stephen King novel it is based off of, but don't they always? Four friends who were bonded at childhood by a special friend who called himself "Duddits" go to an annual cabin for a hunting and camping excursion. Suddenly animals in the forest are running for their lives, and a hunter making strange sounds has come to their camp. Rick McCarthy seems to be ill, but this guy and his belching is the least of their concerns. A destiny is revealed, as Duddits link to the realization of an alien force is about to come true. Snowy Mountains and psychological wars will be waged, and Morgan Freeman plays the captain of a specialized yet somewhat rogue military force that has overtaken the entire area. There is a lot going on so pay attention, because you might miss the entire point. The film doesn't do a great job of showing Duddits ultimate connection with everything, but it works okay. Tom Sizemore also stars as Owen, a member of the military group who realizes that one of the captured hunters (played by Thomas Jane) seems to be able to read his mind, and also seems to be showing him that his commander is out of control. The entire human race hangs in the balance! Gory weasel like creatures and of course, Aliens with BIG eyes abound. Jason Lee and Timothy Olyphant also star. Entertaining Science Fiction type movie that is kind of fun.

OVERVIEW: Based on Stephen King's 2001 science-fiction/horror novel, "Dreamcatcher," the 2003 film adaptation comes to us from director Lawrence Kasdan; Kasdan is also credited to have co-written the screenplay alongside the famed screenwriter, William Goldman. "Dreamcatcher" centers around the adult versions of four friends who, during their childhood, befriended a mentally handicapped boy fondly nicknamed "Duddits." Perhaps as a `thank you' for their friendship, each of the four boys acquires telepathic abilities--a gift they each utilize differently in adulthood. Amidst the friends' annual reunion in Maine, an attack of parasitic aliens reveals the true meaning of Duddits's "gift."

Despite having been adapted from a popular book and featuring a likeable cast, the film's release garnered mostly negative reviews; "Dreamcatcher" holds a 30% rating from Rotten Tomatoes. Personally, I find that movie's first few scenes to be highly captivating; the cast and writing does a phenomenal job of creating intrigue about the characters and their other-worldly situation while still retaining an element of mystery--something key to keep audiences watching. The "problem" with the film occurs along the build-up to the climax--an issue which I attribute to the need to alternative structuring between novel and film. In addition, it seems fair to say that the "suspense-element" of the story was highly untapped by the screenplay; there are many areas where the filmmakers could have utilizes symbolism and twists, yet ultimately failed to do so. All-in-all, I don't necessarily regret purchasing this DVD as it succeeds in telling a dynamic story; what I would warn about is that, while I think it's a good movie to see, it likely isn't one to add to a collection in anticipation of multiple views.
