'Dreamcatcher'
(Morgan Freeman, Tom Sizemore / R / 118 mins / Warner Bros.)

Overview: A group of men who have been friends since childhood go on a hunting trip in northern Maine. When a stranger arrives at their cabin, the four pals (who became telepathically connected to one another after performing a heroic act during their youth) battle the horrors of an invading alien force that takes over people's bodies.

Verdict: 'Dreamcatcher' feels like five Stephen King adaptations rolled into one wild, yet somewhat patchy and chaotic ride! 'Dreamcatcher' is a pretty good example of how the studios have taken over the junk that used to be left to the exploitation hacks. Both character and metaphor have gone to the dogs, leaving a slew of fart and burp jokes which, based on prior SK novels-turned-films, I wasn't actually expecting. To sum up, 'Dreamcatcher' is a triumph of big and slimy monster effects and a disaster of screenwriting and yet it's so silly and unintentionally funny that there are times when you just can't pull your eyes away from the screen for fear of missing something!!
