Everybody loves Jacob Tremblay, don't they? He was terrific as the wide-eyed youth in Room and he was absolutely darling during the awards season. Well, now get used to seeing him in a different light as part of the new horror, Before I Wake, from Oculus director Mike Flanagan.
Tremblay is joined by Kate Bosworth, Thomas Jane, Annabeth Gish, and Dash Mihok in the film that has him playing an adopted 8-year-old boy who is terrified of falling asleep. Of course, he has pretty good reason to be based on the latest trailer.
Check out the synopsis: 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.
Before I Wake hits theaters September 9th.
