The Day The Earth Stood Still
Stand By Me
The Alien series
The Species series

Take a little bit of each of those films and you have Dreamcatcher. A film classified as a horror is more of a Sci-Fi psychological thriller about a group of 4 friends who save a boy from physical bullying and they receive telepathic powers. 20 years later, an alien race is taking over earth and implanting their seeds, you'll generally know who's infected by a scar on their face. Not everybody dies and produces an alien child, some recover and return back to normal.

While, the film isn't original on its own. It has a lot of concept from 5 or more different films all chalked together. It's a departure from the general drama that plagues Steven King films, but it's got that coming-of-age element. Very little with some back scenes throughout the film is spent on the past sequences. The military in the film makes it feel action oriented.

Stephen King's novel is slimmed down and diluted to make it more watchable, and is more sci-fi than thriller or horror.

Dreamcatcher starts off compelling and turns into a tedious, confusing, really stupid monster movie about people pooping out aliens.

After a promising start, dreamcatcher falls into the silly and dull category with the problem of being overlong

Loved the short story by Stephen King. Everything was close to the book except the ending scene. That was a little disappointing.

The movie makes little sense. If it only takes one alien in the water supply to invade Earth then why did the aliens wait until they crash landed to do it? And why did one of the characters try to pick up toothpicks when doing so would put his life in infinitely more peril? The movie had potential, but too many plot holes like these make the movie a stinker.

Nice cinematography and color scheme choice, although Morgan Freeman could've been a bit better.

I'm not a tough critic but this film was a letdown. There's some real craft here, but the story isn't interesting and the film left me feeling cold (literally and figuratively). Best not to see it at all.

This movie is bad, The storyline was dull and lame, and I didn't enjoy watching this at all tbh. I give it one star because the majority of the acting was good, except for the posh sounding alien who possessed a guy, which sounded annoying and fake. Also the setting in the middle of a snowstorm was pretty nice to look at visually. But this is a terrible movie and perhaps Morgan Freemans worst movie.

Poor film treatment of an excellent book.

As long as you don't expect it to make much sense, 'Dreamcatcher' is a bright spot of silliness in unsilly times.

Stephen King horror tale about a mysterious finding in the woods.. 4 men reunite and go to the cabin they enjoyed as kids. They encounter something really freaky.

This is a movie about 4 friends who done something awesome. Later as adults they go on a hunting trip, one of the Jonsey finds a sick man and lets him in their home. The man is housing a alien in his butthole and has to poo it out. and that's where the scary stuff begins.................
The movie is very scary for younger kids, and has sences of nudity gore and disturbing moments. There are these aliens called the ripley eho just look very scary. there is one moment where the alien mr grey pops into nothing and then red mist and blood circle everywhere and that's very intensely scary.
the movie is to long though, 2 and a half hrs I think and drags von for a long time before the scary stuff, I like how this focuses on friendships and it's a lot like IT how it does it's flashback and does have it emitonal parts, but overall its trying to gross you out and scare you not make you cry. Stephen King is the best book athour and is awesome. This movie overall is vey sary and if your kid is watching this it does have a very gross part where someone dis on the toilet and if they watch it they mite not want to use the toilet ever again. JK but really the aliens are scary and this is a good movie
