It starts out as a great idea: a weird kid whose powers include making dreams come true. Grown ups love the beauty of the dreams but don't know how to control his nightmares. You get goosebumps just thinking about it. But the execution is so slow, you find that you're trying hard to stay awake.

Before I Wake Review RatingShalini Langer (Indian Express)

Before I Wake doesn't know where it is going, now that we have a mother, a dead son, and a scared child in the mix. And those two are not the only children the film shapelessly exploits. Haunt, of course, is a euphemism, for this creature inspired by Munch's Scream generates all but a few giggles.   Read Full Review

Sankhayan Ghosh (The Hindu)

This week's only English release is a yawn-inducing horror film with touches of unintended hilarity. The film shamelessly tries all the old tricks in the book to scare -- child ghost under the bed, tick; there is someone behind the character who she can't see but we can, tick; and dead child coming back to interact with parents, tick.  Read Full Review

Udita Jhunjhunwala (Livemint)

Before I Wake uses old-school scares-shock, loud sounds in the dark, a ghastly creature and slow movements by the perpetually hurting Bosworth. Suspension of disbelief is the bedrock of this genre, but there are too many conveniences and not enough scares in the script for the suspense to remain for long.  Read Full Review
