what started out as an intresting premise quickly turned into dulls-ville.
-jason lee is good, but not enough screen time and being the first person killed by the alien thing sucked.
-morgan freeman was like cardboard man
-tom siezmore was under used.
this movie is like signs, tremors, and the thing all rolled into one, but not as good as any...well maybe tremors.
there are some good flashback scenes with child actors playing the leads, which could have been a nice film all to itself.
this film has a lot of strange holes...like is donnie wahlberg's character a good alien of the same species as the bad aliens or just a retarded one, or is he another race of alien?...he is an alien which you see at the end.
and what is the deal with the red blood germ stuff that spreads all over...whats it doing? how does it infect? what happens after infection? more of the shit slugs?
-and the title does not serve the film at all. there are no dreams/nightmares.
-and what does jonesy near death experience have to do with his immunity to the alien infecting him?
this movie is a c at best...wait for video.
