And then, we have Mike Flanagans Before I Wake. Coming this September, the director of unsettling affairs Absentia and Oculus brings us the tale of a young boy whose nightmares manifest in reality as he sleeps, surely unlocking the dark recesses of his subconscious. Shock Till You Drop presents an exclusive look at the poster for anticipated supernatural thriller, below.
Written by Flanagan and Jeff Howard (Oculus), Before I Wake stars Kate Bosworth and Thomas Jane as Jessie and Mark, who 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: Codys dreams manifest in reality as he sleeps. In one moment they experience the incredible wonder of Codys 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 Codys nightmares.
Before I Wake is in theaters September 25, 2015 from Relativity. Find the new poster and photos from the film, below.
