Perhaps King's novel builds to something, but the film Dreamcatcher makes the mistake of being predominantly about its disconnected horror and science fiction staples.

King is dreamily free-associating, which doesn't mean he's plumbing his unconscious in search of new nightmare archetypes; it means he's recycling bits of old horror and sci-fi flicks and even setups from his own novels.

De acordo com os produtores, Stephen King pediu apenas um dólar para ceder os direitos de adaptação de O Apanhador de Sonhos. A julgar-se pelo resultado final, ele cobrou caro demais.

Part sci-fi, part horror, all drivel, this schlocky Stephen King adaptation is amusingly dreadful.

Stupid, sophomoric and moronically silly, it leaves you with the feeling that you might welcome shock treatment just to get your brain back.

Bumpy, lumpy Stephen King adaptation is anything but by-the-book -- and packed with scares by a team of talents.

... not since Death to Smoochy have so many talented people made such a mess of things.

'This is such B-movie material, I'm surprised Roger Corman didn't direct.'

It starts out as an intriguing story of telepathic friends and ends up a monster mash of Ed Wood awfulness.

A movie nobody will mistake as one of King's better adaptations.

Gets the tone of the book precisely right, from the brooding opening, to the creature-feature midsection, to the save-the-world ending.

This review officially renounces the "solution" to the psychological ending written in the novel. The rest is great & Kingian.

Next time Stephen King wants to write about something really scary, he can take the adaptation of Dreamcatcher as his inspiration.

Like Signs, the picture suddenly shifts gears to turn into a choppy, noisy FX blowout.
