Relativity’s bankruptcy troubles continue to mess with their release schedule, with Mike Flanagan’s awesome-looking Before I Wake the latest to suffer.
Their long-delayed Kate Beckinsale-starring chiller The Disappointments Room, which sees a mother and her young son discover terrible secrets in their attic, finally now has a release date set for September 9th. Unfortunately, that was the planned date for the US release of Before I Wake, which now looks to be subjected to further delays. While it was released worldwide earlier this year, US audiences have so far been denied a chance to see the latest from the Oculus/Hush director.
Relativity’s woes included a legal battle with Netflix, and have played havoc with their releases. Before I Wake now has no release date currently set, and could be in for quite a wait. Which is a shame, because it looks like something rather special indeed. Check out the trailer below.
Jessie and Mark, recovering from the death of their young son Sean, decide to take in 8-year-old Cody as a foster child. Cody seems sweet, loving and bright in every way, except that he is afraid to sleep. They soon discover why: Cody’s dreams manifest in reality as he sleeps. In Jessie’s grief, she tries to use Cody’s supernatural abilities to reconnect with her dead son. Soon she discovers that Cody’s nightmares manifest as well, as they experience both the intense wonder – and intense terror – that only a child’s imagination could conjure. To save their new family, Jessie and Mark must uncover the truth behind Cody’s nightmares.
