whoa! (in keanu reeves' words)
6 October 1999 | by (vancouver) – See all my reviews

Perfect car. Perfect girl. Perfect murder ... Almost! Wow! An intruging plot and terrific storyline. The movie's called "Dream Machine" and it stars a fantastic young teen star named Corey Haim. The movie's about a college freshman named Barry Davis (Haim). His parents go away on a trip and leave him in charge of their piano tuning business. Cut to a hotel room where a rich man named Jack Chamberlain (Jeremy Slate) is getting killed by a fumbling accidental murderer named Lance Harper (Randall England). Lance kills him and then hides him in the trunk of Jack's turbo charged Porsche.

Previous to the killing, Margo Chamberlain (Susan Seaforth Hayes), Jack's wife, finds out he's been cheating on her and that he is at the hotel with another woman. So she was going to go down to the hotel room to confront him about it. But he wasn't there! (He was already dead). And then she sees the Porsche and decides to drive it home, not knowing there was Jack's dead body in the trunk!

The next day, Margo is very mad about Jack's cheating, and to make matters worse, Jack didn't come home that night. Barry then came over to tune her piano. After he was done tuning, she saw Barry in awe over the new, 1 week old Porsche. She had just bought it for Jack as a birthday present! To get him back for cheating on her, she decided to give the Porsche to Barry! That's how he recieved the Dream Machine. (With a corpse in the trunk).

Him and his friend Meese (Evan Richards) drove around Colorado looking for chicks with it! Anyway, Lance found out that Barry had the car and would do anything to get it back from him! To make matters worse, the girl he loved, Robin (Brittney Lewis) hated his guts and the head fraternity man (Tracy Fraim) was after him playing weird pranks on him. Barry started to get freaked out because Margo turned up dead (killed by Lance) and there was a weird guy always chasing after him (also Lance).

Everything results to a pulse-pounding showdown. "Dream Machine" is a really great movie filled with thrills, chills and amazing action-suspense! Corey Haim is absolutely excellent! Even better than his performance in the highly acclaimed "License To Drive". His performance of Barry is right on. Newcomer Brittney Lewis is also very good and Evan Richards provides good support. The writer, Eric Hendershot, is a genius and should be involved in Hollywood big budget movies! The director, Lyman Dayton, is also very extraordinary. But once again Corey Haim steals the show! ***** (five stars), one of the best movies of the century! I highly recommend it for anybody in the world or a Haim fan.
