This March, a woman spirals into a nightmare as her horrifying dreams lead to a discovery in Come True, from acclaimed Canadian filmmaker, visual effects artist, and musician Anthony Scott Burns (Our House, Holidays Father’s Day segment). Ahead of its release, we’ve got a brand new clip to share with you.
The film is inspired by a real Berkeley study that reconstructed the dreams, memories, and “movies” of the mind, and the work of icons Nicolas Roeg, Stanley Kubrick, and David Cronenberg.
Starring Julia Sarah Stone (Honey Bee) and Landon Liboiron (Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare) the film is a Copperheart Entertainment and Angel Entertainment production. Burns wrote, directed, and shot the film featuring music by Electric Youth (Drive) and Pilotpriest.
In the film, “high school student 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 (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.”
Come True is executive produced by cult filmmaker Vincenzo Natali, director of Cube, Splice, and Netflix’s In the Tall Grass. The film is produced by Steven Hoban (Ginger Snaps, Splice), Mark Smith (In the Tall Grass, Darknet), Brent Kawchuck (IIn the Tall Grass), and co-produced by Nicholas Bechard (Our House). Andrea Hatzinikolas, Chris Wallace, Bob Crowe, and Karyn Nolan served as executive producers, in addition to Natali. The film was produced with the participation of Telefilm Canada and with the assistance of the Government of Alberta, Alberta Media Fund. Raven Banner holds distribution rights in Canada. XYZ Films is handling US rights. Reel Suspects is handling international rights.
This dark exploration into a world of nightmares, fears, and monsters opens in select theaters, and arrives on Digital and VOD on March 12, 2021, from IFC Midnight.
