SF thriller Dreamscape on Blu-ray, DVD, on-demand & download in July

21 June 2017

Classic 1980s science-fiction adventure Dreamscape, starring screen favourites Dennis Quaid (The Day After Tomorrow) and Kate Capshaw (Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom), makes its UK Blu-ray debut in July courtesy of Second Sight.

This action-packed science-fiction thriller was directed by Joseph Ruben (Sleeping with the Enemy) and also stars Max von Sydow (The Exorcist), and Christopher Plummer (The Sound of Music). The film arrives in a brand new restored version from a 2K scan, packed with a host of brand new special features. Alongside the Blu-ray, Dreamscape will also be available on DVD, on demand and download.

Young psychic Alex Gardner (Quaid) is coerced into joining a dream research project in which those with his abilities are trained to enter and affect the dreams of others. What begins as an experiment in remedying nightmares turns into something far more sinister, when a corrupt government official seizes control of the project. Can Alex can stop his diabolical plan?
