FOUR FRIENDS HUNG A DREAMCATCHER IN THEIR CABIN. IT’S ABOUT TO CATCH SOMETHING IT CANNOT STOP.
Four friends with extrasensory powers gather on a snowy day in a cabin, little realizing that they will end up in the middle of a hunt for nasty aliens. One fine director and one fine screenwriter somehow manage to turn this Stephen King thriller into a complete mess. Morgan Freeman is a predictable nutcase in uniform, the visual effects are nothing special and the movie goes on forever, turning increasingly silly. Still, the winter scenario is handsome.
