Exclusive ‘Come True’ Poster & Images Tease a Sci-Fi Horror Trip into Literal Nightmares

     July 29, 2020

It’s almost time for one of my favorite highlights of the year — Fantasia International Film Festival! Of course, like everything else in 2020, the massive genre fest is going to be different this year, but it’s still on (virtually) and we’ve got an exclusive sneak peek at one of the horror movies set to debut.
Directed by Our House helmer Anthony Scott Burns, the new indie sci-fi horror Come True stars Julia Sarah Stone as a teenager who hits a low point after she runs away from home and winds up facing a super scary case of recurring nightmares without a support system to help her. And things go from bad to worse when she joins a sleep study that looks like it might just be the ticked — money, shelter, and maybe some answers about those horrifying dreams — but the study only makes the nightmares worse. Based on the title, I’m wondering if those nightmares might just, you know, come true.
Come True hails from the producers of In the Tall Grass and Ginger Snaps, with Vincenzo Natali on board as executive producer alongside Andrea Hatzinikolas, Chris Wallace, Bob Crowe, and Karyn Nolan; Steven HobanMark Smith, and Brent Kawchuk producing; and Nicholas Bechard co-producing. Landon Liboiron also stars. Come True will make its premiere during the all-virtual 2020 Fantasia Film Festival. The screening details and festival schedules are still coming together, so stay tuned for more on the film and the fest, and check out the poster created by artist Sara Deck below followed by the new images below.

Here’s the synopsis:

High school student Sarah (Stone) is at her lowest point yet when she runs away from home and finds herself with no one to rely on and struggling with recurring nightmares. She chances upon a university sleep study that offers the promise of safety and money and brings her an unexpected friend and confidant in the overseeing scientist Jeremy (Liboiron). But there’s something curious about proceedings, and being under observation seems to make Sarah’s disturbing dreams even worse. As the darkness begins to close in, it’s soon clear that Sarah has unknowingly become the conduit to a horrifying, new discovery…
