What they think is a dream is about to become a reality...and they are about to find out...the battle they must face has been inside of them all along. The first dream was a warning. Now, they have no choice but to face Tom's dream along with him...and survive. Written by Kloysen5

3 non- musketeers that made me laugh
12 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A new kind of humor for me.. . serious farce. quick wit almost "nit wit" but entertaining. subtle humor you could easily miss. But don't miss this flick. Loved Sam's job, and the drive-thru fast food scene. Andy McCain as Sam is a totally believable nerd as a person we all know in life. The attempts to escapes out of town are cool. Some lighting imbalance from character shot to another but added to the fragmenting of the story bits. There could be more about Sam and the techo-haunting of each character but what was there was fun to watch. I bought the 2 disk set from Amazon and suggest that the making of and the out takes give the viewer a full picture of the challenges and fun that goes into a one camera low budget indi film. PROPS.
