I Review Mike Flanagan's Psychological Chiller "Before I Wake" for Gruesome Magazine

Kate Bosworth stars as a woman who tries to unlock the secret of her foster son's nightmares in Mike Flanagan's Before I Wake.

Director Mike Flanagan is red-hot right now thanks to his fourth feature film Hush and upcoming projects such as Ouija 2, but his long-delayed third feature, the psychological drama Before I Wake, isn't scheduled to debut on American cinema screens until September. It's currently being shown in other countries, though, and I was fortunate enough to catch it during its South Korean run. Here is my spoiler-free review for Gruesome Magazine. Thanks for reading!
