Before I Wake
:- Watch Before I Wake on Youtube on Fire,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.I liked it. It was a little bit creepy, a little bit fantastic and a little bit lump in the throat(y).You can kind of guess how it will resolve and what the different dream elements are before the story get’s there but it still managed to be engrossing and feel fresh along the way.As other reviews mention, the story is about how the mind deals with loss via death. The seemingly odd combination elements in the film do fit together when you consider the perspective they are revealed to represent at the end.The kid in the film is pretty cute and manages to make you feel protective of and sympathetic towards him without saying that much, which is an achievement in itself. The effects are OK – sometimes they look really good and sometimes a bit quirky but that kind of makes sense by the end also.All in all, quite enjoyable if you are in the mood for slightly scary film with a warm heart.
