POLTERGEIST and ALTERED STATES ushered in a siqq substrain of Eighties nightmares, including this idiosyncratic SFX-laden rollercoaster.
A psychedelic horror-thriller for the Spielberg Age, DREAMSCAPE’s charismatic lineup of Dennis Quaid, Kate Capshaw, Max Von Sydow, Christopher Plummer, CHEERS’ George Wendt and even TWIN PEAKS’ David Michael Kelly bonds strong with Joe Dante-adjacent shocks and a dude who morphs into a snake.
Quaid’s a devil-may-care psychic(!!) with the superhero ability to infest a person’s dreams; cue vile villains, tender romance and overbaked visual style you can’t unsee. Drink some beers with this!
