Before I Wake Trailer

I saw the trailer for Before I Wake in 2015 and was intrigued because it seemed more supernatural than horror which may not seem like much of a distinction to some but for me it can make all the difference with this type of movie. Sadly I never had a chance to watch it because Relativity Media filed for bankruptcy before the movie got a wide release. I would bet that director, Mike Flanagan, had given up on seeing his movie released but Netflix has now purchased Before I Wake which will premier January 6th 2018

Starring Kate Bosworth, Thomas Jane and Jacob Tremblay (knock out performances in Room and The Book of Henry), Before I Wake is the story of a couple who adopt a young boy who seems to be able to bring his dreams (and obviously his nightmares) into the real world. I was particularly happy to read that the director wants this thought of less as a horror movie and more a fable or supernatural drama. That confirms what I originally hoped for.
