The Dream Catcher is the main villain from the episode Dreamcatcher.

The Dream Catcher is a spider-like creature who feeds on bad dreams and eats his victims in their sleep. He attempted to eat Lisa and Amelia while they were trapped in his giant spider-web. However, he only ate Meg because she was the only one who couldn't be awoken by Lisa's alarm watch.


  • The Dream Catcher has a strong resemblance to Marilyn Manson.
  • His antics are similar to Freddy Krueger from the Nightmare on Elm Street series since both appear in nightmares mostly and kills, murders, and slaughters their victims in their sleep and if they die in the dream, they die in real life.
  • In the episode, it can be noted that when the girls at the camp are creating dream catchers, the "spider web with the spider bead" foreshadows the arrival of the Dream Catcher.
