Movie Summary

James P. Lay
Released:
2006
Rating:
R
Dreamland is an eerie science fiction film about a couple of friends who experience some very unexpected phenomena while driving through Nevada. Meghan (Jackie Kreisler) and Dylan (Shane Elliott) are broke and a little stir crazy, so they jump into their old Lincoln and make the drive from Reno to Las Vegas, through the Nevada desert. Stopping at Dreamland, a small out of the way cafe, they meet Blake (Jonathan Breck), a helpful bartender who shares his out there stories about captured aliens and nearby Area 51. As they get back in the car and continue their journey, strange things start to happen. The radio starts to broadcast Hitler speaking, then breaking news about Elvis, and Meghan keeps waking up from terrible nightmares. Scared and confused, they both try to ensure the other that everything's ok, but nothing can prepare the young couple for what comes next. James P. Lay directs Dreamland, a shocking and chilling look into a supernatural world beyond time and space.moreless
