Jacob Johnston On His Directorial Debut Dreamcatcher [Exclusive Interview]

Dreamcatcher

There are only so many ways that you can do a slasher film right? We have some classics like I Know What You Did Last Summer and Scream that come to mind when talking about slashers. But over twenty years since the release of those films, some of those fans are now filmmakers looking to put their own spin on the genre. One of those filmmakers is Jacob Johnstone.

This Friday his horror/thriller film Dreamcatcher from Samuel Goldwyn will drop on Digital and On Demand. He has put together this film based on his love for classic literature, 90’s ensemble horror, and late-night walks. He then sprinkled in some EDM music, some mystery and what we get is a very interesting film that goes beyond people getting stabbed.

Dreamcatcher

Here is the synopsis for Dreamcatcher:

Dylan, known to his fans as DJ Dreamcatcher, is on the brink of global stardom. Everything changes the night of Cataclysm, an underground music festival, where two estranged sisters and their friends meet Dylan. After a drug-fueled gruesome event, things begin to spiral into a 48-hour whirlwind of violence and mayhem. 

Dreamcatcher stars Nikki Koss, Zachary Gordon, Travis Burns, Blaine Kern III, Olivia Sui, Emrhys Cooper, Elizabeth Posey, Nazanin Mandi, Adrienne Wilkinson, and Lou Ferrigno Jr.
