“To be honest, I wasnโ€™t really sure what to expect from this flick but since it was directed by Mike Flanagan and since it was available on Netflix, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, even though Flanagan might be one of the most interesting up-and-coming directors in the horror genre, this movie was seriously disappointing though. I mean, there were a couple of interesting ideas but it is always difficult for me to care when they mix such interesting and real issues like trauma and insomnia with the most basic and generic fantastic tropes of the horror genre. As a result, you get such scenes during which a therapist would make the most interesting remarks of the whole movie about the nature of dreams but it was completely discarded and they focused instead on some random gener” read more

"First viewing - March 7th I realized I hadn't watched a movie all week and figured I should fix that. Before I Wake wound up being better than I'd anticipated, but it's easily my least favorite of Mike Flanagan's films. There are some creepy moments along the way, and I thought it was an interesting way to look at how people deal with losing those who are closest to them. I found it rather amusing that about the time I started to wonder whether the central couple ever has to work there were sud"

" Netflix- 1hr. 36min. First Viewing While I respect director Mike Flanagan's ambition, and his directorial talent, Before I Wake just never fully takes off. The ideas that the film toys with are interesting, enough so that they could've made an exceptional film. Unfortunately, the script struggles to juggle them, and underplays them to the point where portions of the film come across as lifeless. Things do get better in the last act, when the end game is revealed to be more humane and heartfelt "

" Mike Flanagan proves once again that he is the best new voice in horror with this film. It's very different from his usual output, but it's still got a lot of his trademark themes along with some genuine emotion that makes this one much more than just a nasty horror flick. It's PG-13 rating holds it back a bit, and it's not anything breathtakingly original, but it's very good and very worth anyone, horror fan or not's time. "

"Overall pretty good horror/thriller movie that has really good acting in it. The CGI ruined the "scary" parts but the story was interesting to the end."
