Dreamscape (1984)Posted: February 1, 2012
Director: Joseph Ruben
The movie stars Dennis Quaid, as a gifted Psychic. Who gets recruited to work on a government-funded project, that applies psychic abilities to dreams. Dennis Quaid’s character starts off on simple dream link tests. He helps a young boy named Buddy, who has been having nightmares of a Snake-man. Working together with Buddy, they are able to overcome the nightmare creature.
Dennis Quaid’s character becomes skilled enough in the art of dream linking, that he is able to jump into another person’s dream without the aid of the dream machine. The “Director of covert-OPs” became aware of this and gives Quaid’s character an the ultimatum of “Join me or die”. After a long chase sequence we have a Psychic vs Psychic dream showdown.
