IFC Midnight unveils trailer & poster for sci-fi horror Come True
Following its debuts at the Fantasia International and Nightstream
film festivals, IFC Midnight has unveiled the first trailer and
poster for the mind-bending sci-fi psychological horror pic
Come True, which is set to hit select theaters and VOD in March.
The trailer and poster can be viewed below!
High school student Sarah (Julia Sarah Stone) is at her lowest
point yet when she runs away from home and finds herself with no
one to rely on and struggling with recurring nightmares. She
chances upon a university sleep study that offers the promise of
safety and money and brings her an unexpected friend and confidant
in the overseeing scientist Jeremy (Landon Liboiron). But there's
something curious about proceedings and being under observation
seems to make Sarah's disturbing dreams even worse. As the
darkness begins to close in, it's soon clear that Sarah has
unknowingly become the conduit to a horrifying, new discovery...
A distinctive and compelling work of science fiction that haunts
the space between wakefulness and sleep, Come True is the
sophomore feature by Canadian writer, director, cinematographer,
and composer Anthony Scott Burns. Featuring an unforgettable
electronic score by Electric Youth and Pilotpriest (the
filmmaker's composing moniker) and a striking performance from
breakthrough actress Julia Sarah Stone (Allure, Everything Will Be
Fine, The Killing), Come True is a cinematic dream well worth the
"I'd been fascinated with this concept of sleep paralysis since
I first experienced it in my youth," Burns wrote in a statement.
"When people are in this state, they often seem to see the exact
same thing: dark shadows with eyes watching over them. Science
obviously declares this a mass hallucination, but you have to
wonder... Why do people see the same thing?" Inspired by the work
of Nicolas Roeg, William Friedkin, Stanley Kubrick, and David
Cronenberg, as well as sleep studies conducted by Berkeley
University, Come True seeks to ask what would happen if we could
see other people's dreams? What would we see? What would we
discover about ourselves? What if these shadows from our
collective dreams saw us looking back at them? Artistically, the
goal of the film was to create a classic genre narrative that
could slowly hypnotize that would clearly deliver a building
'feeling', and finish with a moment for the audience that leaves
them disoriented, lost, questioning where the line between the
film and their own life ends. A dream come true."
The horror thriller hits select theaters and VOD on March 12.
