Storyline

A government funded project looks into using psychics to enter people's dreams, with some mechanical help. When a subject dies in his sleep from a heart attack Alex Gardner becomes suspicious that another of the psychics is killing people in the dreams somehow and that is causing them to die in real life. He must find a way to stop the abuse of the power to enter dreams. Written by Zaphod <aaa@scs.leeds.ac.uk>

Trivia

Dennis Quaid was the first and only choice for Alex Gardner, after the producers loved his dedication for the role and the project during it's pre-production stage. See more »

Goofs

As Alex is sneaking back into the facility at the loading dock doors, 2 armed Government agents walk by on patrol with a dog (a Doberman Pinscher). Alex hides behind a nearby bush, while the agents and the dog walk past without noticing him. Obviously, the agents are using the dog to foil anyone simply 'hiding' from them, yet the dog does not notice Alex. See more »

Fantasy/horror that spotlights the subconscious, good early F/X!
30 April 1999 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

Excellent cast heading up this Fantasy/Horror film with excellent early F/X (seems amateurish to today's standards). The reason I love this film so much is that it spotlights the subconscious and its hidden agendas. It's a classic war between good and evil. The plot is solid, and it's a real headgame when you think about the dream world as another realm completely. Great chemistry between Quaid and Capshaw, and Sydow delivers his usual solid performance. Excellent conclusion!
