Kent, a realist who does not dream, is skeptical of those who do. At the end of a long relationship, and desperate for new friends, he seeks the advice of Ori, his mentor. Ori blames Kent's unhappiness on Kent's denial of his true nature. He tries to guide Kent by introducing him to three people who are friends and lucid dreamers. The dreamers, Ron, Charlene, and Jean, literally appear in each other's dreams, and share the same experiences in them. While Kent is entertained by their stories, he interprets the dreams as thinly disguised confessions and requests for help. Kent is in a position to help each of them, and does so willingly: He gives Ron, a struggling futures broker, 5 million dollars to trade; Charlene desires a political appointment. Kent throws a party for the Mayor, so they can meet; Jean needs love and support. They fall in love and he offers to marry her. One by one, the dreamers turn on Kent: When Kent's account vanishes, Ron believes he is being framed for money ... Written by Bruce Wood

User Reviews

An excellent erotic thriller. - Thumbs up!
25 March 2007 | by Grodmin1See all my reviews

Bruce Wood's "The Door" is a highly compelling supernatural thriller that combines a number of clever elements from other genre films. Fans who enjoyed "The Sixth Sense" who also have a keen interest in Science-Fiction fantasy and more compelling, erotic thrillers would do well to locate this title. The art direction and pacing of the film is very solid. There are a lot of stand out performances by largely unknown actors, as well. Bill Ferris, who plays one of the lead characters, "Kent Cole," has all the makings of the next Hugh Jackman. His performance in this film is great. Hopefully this is the first of many new, Sci-Fi features from this director. - "The Door" is top-notch Indie film-making. Check it out!
