Dreamscape ★★½ 1984 (PG-13)

When a doctor teaches a young psychic how to enter into other people's dreams in order to end their nightmares, somebody else wants to use this psychic for evil purposes. The special effects are far more convincing than the one man-saves-the-country-with-his-psychic-powers plot. 99m/ C VHS, DVD, UMD . Dennis Quaid, Max von Sydow, Christopher Plummer, Eddie Albert, Kate Capshaw, David Patrick Kelly, George Wendt, Jana Taylor; D: Joseph Ruben; W: Chuck Russell; C: Brian Tufano; M: Maurice Jarre.
