There are a few instances where it’s okay to tell your kids to give up on their dreams. For example, if a child dreams of being a dinosaur, you should probably have a gentle conversation about realistic expectations. Before I Wake proposes another more literal take on this parental dilemma: what if your kid’s nightmares began manifesting in reality and started trying to jump scare you to death?
The Before I Wake trailer gets right down to business. There’s a creepy kid (played by Room‘s Jacob Tremblay), an even creepier dead kid, Thomas Jane and Kate Bosworth looking increasingly concerned about their predicament, and a whole bunch of gross things suddenly popping up on screen.
