PSA: ‘Before I Wake’ is On US Netflix Now

Jason McDonald

For anyone outside of the US you might be saying to yourself “What’s the big deal? I saw ‘Before I wake’ a long time ago.”  Well, guess what?  Despite the fact that the movie was available in most territories last year, there has been no legitimate way of watching it in the US so far.  Well, that has finally changed thanks to Netflix.

Netflix has released Mike Flanagan’s long in waiting film “Before I Wake” on their streaming service effective January 5, 2018.  The film stars Thomas Jane, Kate Bosworth, and Jacob Tremblay and was directed by Flanagan from a script he co-wrote with Jeff Howard. In “Before I Wake” . . .

Still mourning the death of their son, Mark and Jessie welcome foster child Cody into their lives. Soon they discover he has a strange ability.

I haven’t seen it yet, but the general vibe out there seems to be that the movie is alright.  Mostly, I’m just excited to have a viable way of watching the movie as I’ve really enjoyed Mike Flanagan’s previous works like “Oculus” and “Hush.”  And if you’re a fan of his, like me, and living in the US then be sure to give it a watch and let Mike know if you like it on Twitter. He’s had a lot of interesting things to say about the release of “Before I Wake” on there.
