The Lathe of Heaven (Spooky Action Run)


A classic tale of speculative fiction. Blessed – or cursed – with dreams that actually alter reality, George Orr comes under the hand of a doctor eager to exploit this amazing phenomenon. Together, Doctor Haber decides, they will remake the world.  Danger!  Dreams won’t be trained or coerced. As the good doctor uses his patient to tinker with reality, unintended con-sequences cascade and increase. Finally, the world itself begins to dissolve. In one last leap, the dreamer risks all – and a maelstrom of change resolves in a final reality where, unexpectedly, lost love may be regained and balance restored.
