Before I Wake was directed by Mike Flanagan and written by Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard. The three main characters are Jessie Hobson (Kate Bosworth), Mark Hobson (Thomas Jane) and Tate (Hunter Wenzel). Imagine adopting a sweet little boy who you don’t know anything about or why he was in an adoption care. Tate was already having a bad childhood,  losing his mom to cancer and his own father trying to shoot him while sleeping. But that’s not the only worry Tate has to face. The worst part is everytime Tate has a dream it comes true, which also means when he has a nightmare, they come true as well. Picture a little boy fighting his own body to stay up and not go to sleep. He consumes energy drinks and stays up all night long. His dreams became worse every night, until the very end.

The part that really interested me was that Tate dreamed of his adopted parents’ deceased son. This added another plot element as the mother forced Tate to fall asleep so that she could reconnect with her dead son. Even though the mom somewhat took advantage of Tate, she fought to make his life better by trying to figure out his dreams and fighting to keep him in her home. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes a fright and for anyone who appreciates a little surprise at the end.
