The latest project from Canadian filmmaker Anthony Scott Burns successfully creates an eerie and immersive atmosphere, but it too-often falls into cliche where its writing is concerned. Come True follows Sarah (Julia Sarah Stone), a young woman who enrolls in a sleep study after having bouts of insomnia, sleepwalking, and night terrors. As her sleep and mental health deteriorate, Sarah starts to realize that there might be something more sinister to the study. Come True has all the makings of a convincing sci-fi flick: it’s visually stunning, the score creates a formidable sense of tension, it introduces questions about what scares us and our nightmares. But the film is ultimately failed by its writing, focusing on unnecessary relationships and settling for lazy answers rather than getting at the heart of what keeps us up at night.
