This Stephen King is way too scary for kids.

Call me crude -- I have to love a scene of suspense built around fallen toothpicks and a toilet monster.

. . .one of the most singularly ambitious big-budget studio movies to crash cineplexes in several years.

It's thrilling to see what a talented director can do with the humorous and horrifying imagination of literary legend Stephen King.

There are plenty of twists, turns and surprises in this elegant and sometimes witty horror flick. . .

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

A Bloody Entertaining Mess With B-Movie Sensibilities. It Has Its Share Of Flaws, But They Don't Take You Out Of The Insanity Of This Gory Little Creature Feature.

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.

It's a mess, but it manages to entertain for longer than many movies do

There are enough ideas in Dreamcatcher for three or four ordinary movies. But then this is no ordinary movie. It's a grand, loopy pageant of ideas, schlock horror and subtle horror, and gross-out effects.

In fact, having already read the book may be the best reason to see "Dreamcatcher," a wildly, schizophrenic jumble of genres best enjoyed with a little foreknowledge.

The first half, centering on the friends and their initial contact with the alien invaders, is smart and downright chilling; the way a fun monster movie should be.

Une adaptation trs fidle du roman de King... pour le meilleur et pour le pire.

Dreamcatcher is a yarn in the enveloping way that movies of yore are warmly talked about by reigning Hollywood royalty, a film that lets you get lost in its snowy crevices by marrying high concept to recognizable and relatable form and setting.
