Dreamland ★★★

Those expecting Bruce McDonald’s Dreamland to be the next Pontypool are probably going to end up disappointed since even though Tony Burgess returns as a screenwriter, along with co-writer Patrick Whistler, the film is a much more surreal and somewhat less accessible viewing experience. While there are individual sequences that stand out in the film, such as Stephen McHattie having a conversation with himself or pretty much anything involving Tómas Lemarquis’ vampire, Dreamland is ultimately a very experimental crime thriller that would probably require the viewer to take copious amounts of drugs to fully enjoy.
