You may not want to sleep after watching this Before I Wake trailer

Good news, everyone! Director Mike Flanagan’s long-delayed horror film Before I Wake is finally getting a release date, and a new trailer has been released.

The Relativity movie (Relativity has been working out its bankruptcy problems) stars Kate Bosworth, Thomas Jane, Dash Mihok, Annabeth Gish and Jacob Tremblay (The Room). The movie follows a couple who adopt an orphaned boy with unusual powers. See, his dreams and nightmares physically manifest themselves when he sleeps. Having butterflies fluttering around your living room? Good (I guess?). Having a nightmarish creature hunt you down? Not good.

(In case some of you are wondering, Flanagan is the guy who helmed Oculus, Hush and the upcoming Ouija: Origins of Evil.) Check out the trailer:

Check out the synopsis:

Jessie and Mark, recovering from the death of their young son Sean, decide to take in 8-year-old Cody as a foster child. Cody seems sweet, loving and bright in every way, except that he is afraid to sleep. They soon discover why: Cody’s dreams manifest in reality as he sleeps. In Jessie’s grief, she tries to use Cody’s supernatural abilities to reconnect with her dead son. Soon she discovers that Cody’s nightmares manifest as well, as they experience both the intense wonder – and intense terror – that only a child’s imagination could conjure. To save their new family, Jessie and Mark must uncover the truth behind Cody’s nightmares.

Before I Wake will open on Sept. 9.
