Marking the feature debut of director Kerry Harris with a script written by Dan V. Shea and based on a story by Harris and Shea, DREAMKATCHER follows a Manhattan therapist (Radha Mitchell) who travels upstate with her boyfriend (Henry Thomas) and his orphaned son (Finlay Wojtak-Hissong) who is tormented by nightmares of his dead mother. When the husband is forced to return to the city, the therapist remains with the boy and they encounter a mysterious neighbor (Lin Shaye) in the woods.
