Who cares if they got the Genre Wrong! GREAT GREAT MOVIE!

Okay here we go... I am so sick of all the people writing reviews where they pick apart the Genre classification, like that some how makes the content of the movie bad because of their "say-so". Get a damn life and quit being a anal retentive Armchair sycophant. Couldn't you just say they got the sub categories wrong and be done with it. No one really gives a crap. If you think it really matters, Then write to the Studio that produced the film and complain to them. (guaranteed your letter will wind up in the round file") Instead, write a fair review about the actual "Movie" and move on. NOW... I liked this movie, it was done well, great acting ( the kid stole the show in my opinion). Filming was great, suspense slow and grinding, Music was good and the special effects were actual good for this type of movie. It reminded me of the 1984 movie Dreamscape with Dennis Quaid and David Patrick Kelly where he helps the kid with the same kind of problem. Done well and It was great entertainment. Enjoy.

One of Flanagan's better movies

Most of Mike Flanagan's movies I have wanted to like more than I have liked them. Therefore my expectations were quite low when I began watching this. Turns out things got turned around. I didn't really want to like this one, but I did. It was actually a beautiful mix between fantasy and horror, and although many elements have been seen in other movies, there is a lot that is fresh which left me smiling when the credits started rolling.

Doesn't quite ever live up to it's great potential.

'BEFORE I WAKE': Three and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

A horror fantasy about a couple who adopt a child who's dreams, and nightmares, come alive physically when he sleeps. It stars Kate Bosworth, Jacob Tremblay, Thomas Jane, Annabeth Gish and Dash Mihok. The film was directed by Mike Flanagan (who's also helmed such other low budget horror flicks as 'OCULUS', 'HUSH', 'OUIJA: ORIGIN OF EVIL' and 'GERALD'S GAME'), and it was scripted by Flanagan and Jeff Howard (Flanagan's frequent writing partner). It's received mixed to positive reviews from critics, and it was released by Netflix through it's streaming site. I enjoyed it.

After tragically losing a child, and being unable to have more kids of their own, Jessie (Bosworth) and Mark (Jane) decide to adopt. They pick an eight-year-old boy named Cody (Tremblay), who seems like a sweet and idealistic kid. Then the couple witnesses Cody's dreams manifest themselves in front of them. The dreams are at first beautiful things, like butterflies, and the couple also sees their deceased son (Antonio Evan Romero) appear among them too. Jessie sadly takes advantage of Cody, in order to create her lost son for her. Cody's dreams soon turn to nightmares though, and a horrific and deadly monster appears.

I've really enjoyed Flanagan's other movies, and I really like this cast as well; especially Tremblay, who's turning into such an impressive young actor. The premise for this film is really interesting and creepy too. It's even beautiful and touching at times. The film overall is a little slow though, and it doesn't quite ever live up to it's great potential. Still, it's a decently made little horror flick, without a doubt.
