Summary of Dreamcatcher film plot

The four friends, Jonesy, Henry, Pete and Beaver meet for their annual hunting trip in the woods of Maine. 20 years ago they rescued a strange boy named Duddits and got in return a gift - telepathic powers.

On the trip they meet a strange man who suffers from terrible flatulences and red marks on his skin. A vicious snow storm starts and the four realize that there is something terrible out there - something not from this world - something Duddits had tried to prepare them for. Now it’s the time to save the world.

Main differences between film and the Stephen King book - Dreamcatcher

  • In Stephen King’s book Duddits has the Down Syndrom, but in the movie Duddits seem to have some other brain disabilities, at least he has no typical Down Syndrom physiognomy.
  • The name of Colonel Kurtz in the novel was changed to Colonel Curtis for the movie.
  • The scenes of the camp where people who are supposedly infected by the alien virus are very powerful in the book, but the movie doesn’t really show the concentration camp athmosphere. Besides there is no revolt of the camp inmates shown in the movie.

What TheDarkKing thinks about the Dreamcatcher movie

Stephen King’s novel Dreamcatcher is a very suspenseful horror sci-fi novel with a complex and exciting storyline. Some people say that the movie adaptation lacks of character development and though it may be true that the story isn’t fully explained in the film, the movie Dreamcatcher is still very watchable and actually quite a lot of fun.

The film transfers the very interesting bits of Stephen King’s novel like the alien worms in powerful pictures. The bathroom scene is a masterpiece of suspense. Also the flashbacks into the childhood of the main characters are very well made. Finally the scenes in Jonesy’s head in his mind library are extraordinary.

The cast is fantastic, especially Damian Lewis when he switches between Jonesy and Mr. Grey. His performance is believable and fun to watch.

Dreamcatcher is a perfect combination of sci-fi, horror and humor. It has great visual effects, the music is creepy in the right moments and the cinematography is beautiful.

If you enjoy crossovers of horror and science fiction with a bit of humor, the Dreamcatcher is the movie to watch.

    I can’t believe you didn’t put The Shawshank Redemption in this list! IMO it should be first or second, after the Green Mile

    The movie sucks when you compare it to the book. The book explains everything in detail. The movie lacks the extra detail that could have made it amazing.
