Welp, here's my favorite perverted ESP flick from the eighties, it stars Dennis Quaid, Eddie Albert, Max von Sydow, Christopher Plummer and Kate Capshaw. Also, the very talented David Patrick Kelly plays the super villain, Tommy Ray Glatman. The story's about a young psychic recruited by a government agency experimenting with the use of the dream-sharing technology (NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET) and is given the inverse task of planting an idea into the mind of the US president.
I have a sound clip for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button located there by our Big Book of ESP, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula!.. Here's a sample from... DREAMSCAPE!
The story starts with our president having a reoccurring dream of death and destruction, this time his wife (a Nancy Reagan type) gets toasted as heard in the sound clip.
Alex Gardner is chosen to participate in a government funded ESP experiments along with others with psychic abilities. Jane DeVries is his instructor and soon to be lover.
Tommy Ray shows up at the apartment of Alex unannounced and seems to be a real jerk.
Alex goes into a dream to help out a construction worker only to fall off the beam himself!.. Having fun yet?
Alex knows that something very weird is going on with Tommy Ray, his attitude is plain scary!
So, Alex decides to visit the dream of the president to try and figure out what the Hell is happening. Well, Hell's what's happening!
Then, Tommy Ray shows up to join the gang. After he pulls out the beating heart of the conductor, he sets his sights on Alex and the prez.
Tommy Ray has been studying the fine art of ninja fighting, putting Alex at a big disadvantage.
Then he calls out his Hounds from Hell to stalk Alex and the prez, the fun just never ends!
Tommy Ray has turned himself into a snake creature and has the president cornered, who only has a pipe to protect himself.
In a clever move, Alex turns himself into Tommy Ray's dead father... But, why?!
This amazes me, look at the expression of the eyes on the monster, Tommy Ray cannot believe what he's seeing... Is that his father?!..
That diversion gives the president just enough time to ram the pipe through the thing, and, causes Tommy Ray to reap what he sowed... Love this movie! Join us again Wednesday for more, here at The Dungeon!
