Failed to deliver satisfying conclusion,here's why..(Long review)

I thought this movie was very interesting I was right into trying to unravel the3 mystery, gave me a similar vibe like when I first watched the sixth sense, in that I was waiting for a totally unexpected and cleverly planed ending, like when Bruce Willis was the dead man the whole time, those type of films whether horror, thriller, drama are very few and far between, majority of mainstream films are dull and easily predictable, that is why the sixth sense in my is one of the best written movies I've ever seen. The way it was written with such a satisfying and thought provoking ending had me thinking about it for weeks after which has not happened with any other movie. I should add that there may be others out there, and I'm by no means the type of person who watches every movie. The Sixth Sense,was written like a true puzzle that I could not solve, until the unexpected dramatic and satisfying conclusion, which rarely happens in main stream movies. As I said I watched Before I wake and it had my full attention;which rarely happens by the way, I was truly thinking this was going to deliver a twist or unexpected conclusion as to what really happened to the boy or his current foster family. Was he dead? were the foster parents and the boy all dead looking for some kind of answers in there unrest? living in some kind of afterlife dreamland unknowingly? The canker man is actually the boys manifestation of his loving,sick dying mother who had cancer,and he related it to a monster, hence the name 'canker' as he was just a child and wasn't able to fully grasp the concept or read. At this point I thought to myself "wow this is actually a great and cleverly thought out way of showing how cancer literately eats those we love, and how it is a evil monster(metaphorically) speaking of course, that takes away "eats" people, like we see the monster slowly absorb its victims. I started unraveling the story in my head and said, wow that is a unique and interesting way to explain the reality of cancer and how it eats people until they are shriveled and frail, this was going to be a clever and hard hitting story about how cancer metaphorically "eats" and ultimately leaves its victims looking like "monsters" from a child's perspective,after its wrath. I thought it was going to say the boys mother, step father, bully, were in fact actually eaten, by the hideous real life monster everyone knows by the name of: cancer, from the perspective of a child as he sees cancer as a real monster. Now that would have made this a 5/5 for me, story telling and entertaining and mysterious puzzle all in one. However, Before I wake lacked to deliver any ending, felt as if the writers kind of had a great idea, just didn't quite know how to deliver a good conclusion, as if they said this is good enough, lets just put it out there, a dull ending with no real twist or revel. This could of been great, and it was for the majority of the movie, until the boring and unsatisfying, dull ending. What seemed like a sure firecracker of a movie, however, its inability to deliver any hard hitting explanation or thought provoking twists,made this film a dull and boring dud.

Do not expect a "regular" horror movie

This movie somewhat reminded me of "A.I. Artificial Intelligence", a movie that started out like a drama and in the end felt like a fairy tale story. "Before I Wake" has the feel of a horror movie at times, but turns into, albeit a scary one, a fairy tale. The good: The actors did a fine job, especially the two leads. A well written story and the fantasy effects looks good. The bad: The monster did not look very scary, but I guess there is a reason for that in the story. The movie is promoted as a horror, I guess that will leave some viewers disappointed. This is not The Conjuring or Saw. This is a fantasy with some scary elements.

Who cares if they got the Genre Wrong! GREAT GREAT MOVIE!

Okay here we go... I am so sick of all the people writing reviews where they pick apart the Genre classification, like that some how makes the content of the movie bad because of their "say-so". Get a damn life and quit being a anal retentive Armchair sycophant. Couldn't you just say they got the sub categories wrong and be done with it. No one really gives a crap. If you think it really matters, Then write to the Studio that produced the film and complain to them. (guaranteed your letter will wind up in the round file") Instead, write a fair review about the actual "Movie" and move on. NOW... I liked this movie, it was done well, great acting ( the kid stole the show in my opinion). Filming was great, suspense slow and grinding, Music was good and the special effects were actual good for this type of movie. It reminded me of the 1984 movie Dreamscape with Dennis Quaid and David Patrick Kelly where he helps the kid with the same kind of problem. Done well and It was great entertainment. Enjoy.
