Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Below Average "What fills some 600 King-size pages, though, is too much and too messy here: Kasdan can create scenes of banter and menace, of everyday Maine community and gut-gushing F/X, but he can't wrestle this production into a coherent movie experience.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Below Average "In a development that maintains a longstanding tradition, Dreamcatcher is the latest book-to-screen adaptation of a Stephen King horror novel that proves to be, in a word, horrific. That is not meant as a compliment.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Below Average "Dreamcatcher begins as the intriguing story of friends who share a telepathic gift, and ends as a monster movie of stunning awfulness. What went wrong? How could director Lawrence Kasdan and writer William Goldman be responsible for a film that goes so awesomely wrong?''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Below Average "Sprawling, gooey and profoundly juvenile, this derivative thriller piles on the cheese...''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

I'm certainly not surprised by the relatively high number of low opinions. There's actually less of them than I thought there would be. I guess most moviegoers seeing Dreamcatcher knew it was a sci-fi thriller.

These opinions don't change my prediction: If you're a sci-fi fan, you won't want to miss Dreamcatcher! (But be sure to read the detailed content information because it's pretty graphic and bloody.)

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
First let me say, Dreamcatcher is one of the oddest sci-fi stories I've ever seen, but also one of the most interesting. The story is a cross between "The Twilight Zone" and "The Outer Limits." It's very very VERY strange and will certainly keep your interest throughout. I will caution you to read the detailed content information because this movie is very graphic and bloody. I can't tell you much about the story for two reasons. One, because it would reduce the impact of the movie and two because I'm not exactly sure I understand all that happened in the story.

I predict that sci-fi and/or horror movie fans are going to really enjoy Dreamcatcher and everyone else is not going to like it much. If you like sci-fi and/or horror movies you don't want to miss Dreamcatcher. It's wild.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Jonesy, Henry, Pete and Beaver. Twenty years ago they were just kids in a small town in Maine – kids who found the courage to respond heroically to childhood cruelty. In saving a strange boy named Duddits, they unexpectedly gained a fifth friend at the center of their circle. Even more unexpected were the uncanny powers he conveyed to them, bonding them all beyond ordinary friendship.

Now the four are men with separate lives and separate problems, haunted by the memory of heroism, with powers that are more of a burden than a gift. When a shocking accident almost claims one of them, they don't at first recognize the return of the eeriness that is somehow linked to Duddits.

But when they reunite for their annual visit to a hunting cabin in the north woods, anticipating only the warmth and humor that nourishes them, they are overtaken by a gathering doom. First comes a stranger, a lost hunter unaware of the terrible contagion he bears. On his heels is a blizzard, a vicious storm in which something much more ominous moves – a deadly alien force that will consume some of the foursome and force those who make it to the end of the road to once again summon their forgotten strength… and confront an unparalleled horror.
