Come true

Poster Come true

Sarah, a runaway teenager, sees her nights filled with repeating nightmares. One day, she answers a classified ad and participates in a paid study on sleep. But soon she realizes that the doctors are carrying out very dangerous experiments...

Good news: the world of dreams and the powers of the unconscious are still inspirations for filmmakers. Reminiscent by its esthetics to the teen-nightmares crafted by the brilliant Wes Craven in the 80s, Bad Dreams borrows its depressive essence while opting for an ethereal atmosphere, a somnambulist rhythm, in tune with the heroine's plight. Bad Dreams introduces the fabulous Julia Sarah Stone - and her fascinating beauty - as she shares her despair and wanderings. For his second feature film, Canadian filmmaker Anthony Scott Burns  proposes a film as haunting as its music, co-written with the synthpop band Electric Youth, as melancholic and ethereal as it can be.

Come true.
