Before I Wake

Fear your dreams


Before I Wake
A young childless couple adopt a sweet and loving 8-year-old boy. Unknown to them, he is terrified of falling asleep. At first, they assume his previous unstable homes caused his aversion to sleep, but soon discover why: his dreams manifest in reality as he sleeps. In one moment they experience the incredible wonder of his imagination, and in the next, the horrific nature of his night terrors. To save their new family, the parents embark on a dangerous hunt to uncover the truth behind the boy's nightmares. This film does not appear to have been released Stateside yet.
