IFC Midnight is planning a release in early 2021 for visionary director Anthony Scott Burns’ Come True a sci-fi nightmare based on the real-life horror of sleep paralysis and how it plays tricks on the mind. The film starring Julia Sarah Stone (The Killing, Weirdos, Allure) and Landon Liboiron (Truth or Dare, Frontier, Hemlock Grove) had its world premiere at the 2020 Fantasia Film Festival and its U.S. premiere at the inaugural virtual super-festival NIGHTSTREAM.
Dark dreams trouble rebellious teenager Sarah. Struggling at school and unable to go home, she is relieved to find shelter at a university sleep study. Hoping this will finally help her to get rid of her nightmares, Sarah unwittingly becomes the channel to a horrifying new discovery.
Director Anthony Scott Burns commented, “I am thrilled to have IFC onboard as our American home for Come True. The film was created to entertain audiences who love the horror genre, but also appreciate the unpredictable nature of independent cinema. IFC are proven masters of both realms, so I know we’re in the best hands.”
