As usual, every year, there are a bunch of horror and genre films that suddenly appear that weren’t on anyone’s radar. When making lists of films that are must-sees, it’s always the big budget films or sleepers that have been playing festival circuits that come up, but every so often a little unknown film starts getting buzz and usually for the right reasons. 2014’s Come Back To Me was one of those films. Directed by Paul Leyden and based off a small press book entitled The Resurrectionist authored by Wrath James White, the film suddenly appeared on Netflix and generated a bit of discussion on the internet.
The story takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada, about a young married couple named Sarah and Josh. Soon a new neighbor moves in next door, a quiet and apparently harmless young man named Dale. As the stress of starting a family and graduating from a Master’s program at college, Sarah begins to get night terrors that simply won’t go away. With the help of her pregnant friend, Leslie, a general practitioner, she tries to work out her issues only to discover that there may be a more disturbing source for her dilemma.
