"FOUR FRIENDS REUNITE AND MUST SURVIVE AN ALIEN INFESTATION"
- 'Dreamcatcher' is a 2003 sci-fi horror film by Lawrence Kasdan (Silverado), based on the novel by horror writer Stephen King. In my opinion not the best of the Stephen King's filmed stories. Though the plot is appealing (reminds me a lot of 'It') and the visuals are far from bad, 'Dreamcatcher' fails to keep you on the edge of you seat and leaves you disappointed in the end. I did like the reference to my favorite movie 'Alien'. In its cast we see Thomas Jane (The Mist), Damian Lewis (Homeland), Timothy Elephant (Scream 2), Jason Lee (Alvin and the Chipmunks) and Morgan Freeman (The Dark Knight Trilogy). Beware of 'Ister G'ay!
Four childhood friends have their annual reunion in the woods near the town of Derry, where they plan to go hunting and share memories of the time they had with Douglas 'Duddits' Cavell, who had the syndrome of Down. All of the men have problems that they want to forget during the time they spend together. While the suicidal Henry (Jane) and the alcoholic Pete (Elephant) are at the grocery shop in the town, Beaver (Lee) who is terrible in relationships and Jonesy (Lewis) who almost died in a traffic accident find a disorientated man in the woods. Shortly after taking him to the cabin and putting him into bed, the two friends witness how animals are migrating. Going outside they see helicopters that belong to Colonel Abraham Kurtz (Freeman), who tells them that the entire area is under quarantine. Suddenly Beaver and Jonesy hear a noise from the bathroom. Entering the room they see the man covered in blood. Some alien creature came out of him and is inside of the toilet bowl. What is happening?
