A strange blend of science fiction, Lovecraftian horror, and romantic fantasy, DREAMSCAPE admittedly does struggle to balance out the weird with the mundane 'political conspiracy' subplot. But Dennis Quaid is very good and the supporting cast is fine; Kate Capshaw is given the chance to shine especially after her histrionic debut in TEMPLE OF DOOM.

Daft but enjoyable sci-fi thriller that's basically Scanners crossed with A Nightmare On Elm Street. The strong concept of psychics who can invade your dreams as assassins is a strong one (something obviously recognised by Christopher Nolan as Inception did something suspiciously similar). It's reasonably well done with some nicely surreal imagery but the effects have not dated well and it would've been a lot better if they'd ditched the sappy happy ending and ended it a scene earlier.

Fun sci-fi adventure. Dennis Quaid is charismatic and the premise is cool.
