YMMV: Dreamcatcher
  • Freud Was Right - There's some phallic undertones with the "shit-weasels"—at one point, when they stiffen, it's likened to a "dick getting hard". If that wasn't enough there's some Vagina Dentata going on in the film adaptation.
  • Ho Yay - Pretty much all of the interactions between the four main characters (in the scene right before they save Josie Rinkenhauer, Pete kisses Jonesy on the lips, and plenty more).
  • Squick - Probably one of King's squickiest.
  • Tear Jerker - Duddit's death.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs? - King wrote the book as a tool for his recuperation after being hit by a car in 1999. He was doped up on painkillers throughout the entire process. Take that as you will.

  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks - Among other things, making Duddits an alien in the film didn't go over too well with the fans.
    • Especially considering how great the original ending is.
