80s SciFi/Horror Movie Help Wanted!!
None ^ | today | me

Posted on 12/09/2009 9:01:05 AM PST by kimmie7

Okay, FReepers, I have been looking for this movie for years and would love to find it for "he who has everything". Only problem is, we've both forgotten the title. Me because it has been a while, me because...well...I'm me. lol

All I really remember is that this fella keeps dreaming that someone is trying to give him a message and keeps saying "This is not a dream." If I remember correctly, later in the movie it is revealed that the person appearing is him. It isn't a dream, he has traveled through time to give himself a warning.

Color? Black and White?, sounds like an episode from Twilight Zone to me.

There was that John Carpenter film “Prince of Darkness” that involed someone in the future beaming back “dreams” as a warning.

Okay, sorry.......more info:

Color
Not Total Recall ...more like a B-ish movie but fairly well done.
The guy kept syncing in and out with static and such...like TV when I was a kid.

This sounds like John Carpenter’s ‘Prince of Darkness,’ where someone in the future is sending a message back in time to avoid an event that turns out to be catastrophic.

It’s a pretty bad movie.

Check the memorable quotes:

Voice: This is not a dream... not a dream. We are using your brain's electrical system as a receiver. We are unable to transmit through conscious neural interference. You are receiving this broadcast as a dream. We are transmitting from the year one, nine, nine, nine. You are receiving this broadcast in order to alter the events you are seeing. Our technology has not developed a transmitter strong enough to reach your conscious state of awareness, but this is not a dream. You are seeing what is actually occurring for the purpose of causality violation.

It's actually one of Carpenter's better movies... At least it started off strongly. I recently watched Ghosts of Mars.... now there is a lowsy flick!

And of course who can forget They Live!....

Is it Village of the Damned? That happened several times - the people fall asleep and hear what sounds like a garbled radio message several times, and only at the end to you hear that it is being broadcast by the people themselves from the future.

I saw, I got the movie wrong because that’s part of the John Carpenter collection I bought. You should get that for hubby, has 4 john carpenter movies in it, including “the Thing”, Village of the Damned, Prince of Darkness, and Vampires.
