    Synopsis


    Dreamcatcher
    Four men are changed forever by an act of mercy -- changes which have a profound impact many years later -- in this blend of horror and science fiction based on a novel by Stephen King. Jonesy (Damian Lewis), Henry (Thomas Jane), Pete (Timothy Olyphant), and Beaver (Jason Lee) were four friends who, as schoolboys, rescued a boy with Down's Syndrome, Duddits (Donnie Wahlberg), from a savage beating at the hands of bullies. Their experience with Duddits left the boys profoundly changed, as they discovered they had developed psychic powers which allowed them to wordlessly communicate with one another, read the minds of others, and see events in the future. The four remained close friends into adulthood, and meet every year for a weekend get-together at a remote hunting lodge. However, one year Jonsey is approached by the spirit of Duddits, which leads him into a severe auto accident, though his wounds heal with mysterious speed and are gone by the time he and the guys get together a few months later. As the guys drink and swap stories, a desperately ill hunter makes his way into the cabin, whose body has become the host for a horrible wormlike creature, which breaks free and soon goes on a killing spree, leaving only Henry alive. In the wake of this attack comes a massive snowstorm, and Henry learns that these events are the first signs of a major attack by a powerful alien force which can assume any form it wishes. As duplicitous military leader Col. Abraham Curtis (Morgan Freeman) comes in to quell the menace, Henry finds himself in communication with the late Jonsey, whose previous near-death experience gives him an unexpected advantage in stemming the alien tide. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      The Book was Better

      I loved Stephen King's "Dreamcatcher"....in book format. I saw it online oneday and figured I'd throw a few bucks out there to see just how the movie had turned out, 1 1/2 stars be damned. Unfortunately, once I had seen it, I wished I could have taken that 2+ hours of my life back. The ratings the critics gave this movie were too kind. If you enjoyed the book, I would strongly suggest not purchasing this movie.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      I bought this for a Christmas present. It's been a long time since I saw this movie, but from what I remember, it's one of the better book to movie conversions by Stephen King.
