Today, we have the first look at Come True, the new nightmarish sci-fi thriller from acclaimed Canadian filmmaker, visual effects artist and musician Anthony Scott Burns, director of Our House.
Starring Julia Sarah Stone (Honey Bee, The Killing) and Landon Liboiron (Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare), the film finds high school student Sarah (Stone) 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 (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…”
