    Trailer: (2mins 3secs)



    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.
