Behold the glorious poster for Dreamscape (1984). All of these things happen in the film, but most of them are in the last 15 minutes (along with the entirety of their budget). This isnot an exciting Indian Jones adventure film inside dreams as the poster suggests. It’s a politically-infused sci-fi. All these elements are present in the film, but the film that this poster suggests doesn’t exist at all.
Not a great film. But not an awful film (Max Von Sydow improves everything). I’d been wanting to see it for years after I started writing a screenplay called “Dreamscapes” in middle-school only to find that there was a film with practically the same name.
It is awesome to see a young David Patrick Kelly (Jerry Horne in Twin Peaks) being crazy.
