Jacob Tremblay’s follow up to Room is Before I Wake, a creepy new horror film about a little boy whose dreams manage to become reality. Here’s the trailer:
And the official synopsis:
In this intense and heart pounding supernatural thriller, Jessie (Kate Bosworth) and Mark (Thomas Jane) decide to take in a sweet and loving 8-year-old boy, Cody. Unbeknownst to them, Cody is terrified of falling asleep. At first, they assume his previous unstable homes caused his aversion to sleep, but soon discover why: Cody’s dreams manifest in reality as he sleeps. In one moment they experience the incredible wonder of Cody’s imagination, and in the next, the horrific nature of his night terrors. To save their new family, Jessie and Mark embark on a dangerous hunt to uncover the truth behind Cody’s nightmares.
Kate Bosworth and Thomas Jane as the parents don’t necessarily invoke confidence, especially with Jane’s hair. Try and ignore that. Before I Wake does look to have some creative visuals and a creepy premise, but we’ll see how the execution works. It’s set for a September 9 release, so there’s that to think about as well.
