Dreamkatcher is a horror movie that was released in 2020. The movie revolves around the story of a young boy named Josh (played by Finlay Wojtak-Hissong) who is suffering from nightmares. His father, Gail (played by Henry Thomas) takes him to a remote cabin in the woods to try and find a solution to Josh's nightmare problem. Radha Mitchell also stars in the movie as Josh's stepmother, Kate.

Upon arriving at the cabin, Josh starts to have more vivid nightmares that take him to a place where he is confronted by a sinister presence that he calls 'The Skinned Man'. It becomes clear that something is trying to communicate with him through his dreams, and that this place is not just a figment of his imagination.

The presence of the Skinned Man becomes more and more threatening as the movie progresses, and strange things start to happen in and around the cabin. Kate, in particular, starts to become increasingly disturbed by the things she experiences.

As the story unfolds, it is revealed that the cabin they are staying in has a dark history, and that there may be a connection between this and Josh's nightmares.

The movie is well-paced and suspenseful, with a few jump scares thrown in for good measure. The overall tone is bleak and atmospheric, with some effective use of lighting and sound design.

Radha Mitchell delivers a solid performance as Kate, a woman who is struggling with her own personal demons while trying to take care of Josh. Henry Thomas, who is best known for his role in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, puts in a decent performance as Gail, the father who is doing his best to support his family.

Finlay Wojtak-Hissong, who is relatively new to acting, is impressive as Josh. He manages to convey a sense of genuine fear and vulnerability that makes you care about his character.

One of the standout features of Dreamkatcher is its visual style. The dream sequences are particularly well done, with some striking imagery that is both eerie and surreal. The Skinned Man himself is a memorable creation, with a design that is both creepy and unsettling.

While there are some predictable elements to the story, there are also some surprises along the way that keep you engaged. The ending, in particular, is satisfying and ties up the story nicely.

Overall, Dreamkatcher is a solid horror movie that is well worth checking out. While it may not reinvent the wheel when it comes to the genre, it is a well-crafted and entertaining film that should please fans of horror movies.

Dreamkatcher is a 2020 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 25 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 3.8.
