    Though my memory of The Sender is a bit foggy as its been awhile..Dreamscape is a very fun ride,even though its pretty damn dated now.The Snakeman rules...so it gets my vote.:D

    The Sender is awesome, although the ending is somewhat weak. Dreamscape was pretty weak all around.

    DREAMSCAPE was my first PG-13 rated movie on the big screen (I saw it on my 12th birthday and thought it was pretty cool); I wish they'd release an uncut DVD but it's fun nonetheless.

    Never even heard of THE SENDER.....hmmmm.

    While I like both,I found THE SENDER to be genuinely creepy.Why isn't this on DVD ?

    Good question. It made it to Laserdisc though. It's full screen but the transfer and audio are pretty decent!

    Because Paramount owns the rights.

    Anyway, The Sender easily. It's an excellent film. I love the electro-shock scene.

    Dreamscape. Almost exclusively because of Dennis Quaid's tight, tight pants and frequent shirtless scenes.

    The Sender had a few really interesting, beautiful scenes but couldn't hold it together for the full feature length.
