# 31 Days of Halloween – Day 30: “Before I Wake”

My Day 30 (Wednesday) Pick:

All hail horror writer/director Mike Flanagan for today’s awesome pick. Flanagan comes to us with a string of top-shelf horror in his filmography, including, without scratching the surface, such hits as 2019’s “Doctor Sleep” (opening in theaters this weekend), and 2017’s “Gerald’s Game.” Today’s pick – my penultimate pick – is “Before I Wake” a beautiful supernatural film that blew me away. Jessie (played by actress Kate Bosworth) and Mark (played by actor Thomas Jane) become foster parents to a sweet and loving 8-year-old boy, Cody (played by child actor Jacob Tremblay) who is terrified of falling asleep. And there’s good reason for this: Cody’s nightmares become reality when he sleeps. Available now on Netflix.
