"That little boy's dreams come true. It's an amazing, beautiful thing. But his nightmares, they're... deadly." A newly adopted boy is afraid to close his eyes in Mike Flanagan's Before I Wake. He doesn't fear the bladed boogeyman from Elm Street, though. He's instead scared of what he might conjure into the real world, as both his dreams and nightmares become palpable entities in the first trailer for the upcoming supernatural thriller from Flanagan. Also featured in our latest video round-up are teasers for the second season of Penny Dreadful, the fifth season of Game of Thrones, and the debut season of Scream Queens.

Before I Wake: From Relativity, Before I Wake hits theaters on May 8th:

"In this intense and heart pounding supernatural thriller, Jessie (Kate Bosworth) and Mark (Thomas Jane) decide to take in a sweet and loving 8-year-old boy, Cody. Unbeknownst to them, Cody is terrified of falling asleep. At first, they assume his previous unstable homes caused his aversion to sleep, but soon discover why: Cody's dreams manifest in reality as he sleeps. In one moment they experience the incredible wonder of Cody's imagination, and in the next, the horrific nature of his night terrors. To save their new family, Jessie and Mark embark on a dangerous hunt to uncover the truth behind Cody's nightmares.

BEFORE I WAKE stars Kate Bosworth (Superman Returns), Thomas Jane (TV's "Hung"), Annabeth Gish (TV's "Pretty Little Liars"), Dash Mihok (TV's "Ray Donovan") and introducing Jacob Tremblay as Cody."

Penny Dreadful: "Fresh Hell", the season two premiere of Penny Dreadful, will premiere on Showtime on Sunday, May 3rd, at 10:00pm EST. "Fresh Hell" is directed by James Hawes off a teleplay by John Logan.

“This season, Vanessa and Ethan form a deeper bond as the group, including Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton), Dr. Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway), and Sembene (Danny Sapani), unite to banish the evil forces that threaten to destroy them. Meanwhile, Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney), the Creature (Rory Kinnear) and Brona (Billie Piper) are all waging battles of their own. Patti LuPone will guest star as a mysterious character of great importance in Vanessa’s past. Helen McCrory returns as Evelyn Poole (a.k.a. Madame Kali), the seductive spiritualist who will pose a unique threat to our protagonists this season, along with Simon Russell Beale, who is back as eccentric Egyptologist Ferdinand Lyle. Additional guest stars include Douglas Hodge as a Scotland Yard investigator; Sarah Greene as Poole’s powerful daughter, Hecate; and Johnny Beauchamp as a man with a singular past.”

"An erotically-charged, profoundly unsettling new saga, PENNY DREADFUL completely reinvents literature's most iconic and terrifying characters. Dorian Gray, Victor Frankenstein and timeless figures from Dracula join a core of original characters in a dark and brutal quest to save a soul -- even as they grapple with their own monstrous temptations."

Game of Thrones: “Game of Thrones follows kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars and noblemen who are engaged in a deadly cat-and-mouse game for control of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. As betrayal, lust, intrigue and supernatural forces shake the four corners of the Kingdoms, their bloody struggle for the Iron Throne will have unforeseen and far-reaching consequences.”

Season 5 of Game of Thrones will premiere on HBO on Sunday, April 12th.

Scream Queens: An anthology series scheduled to premiere its 15-episode season in the fall of 2015 on Fox, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk's Scream Queens centers on a college campus turned upside down by a string of murders. Murphy revealed that, like American Horror Story, Scream Queens will follow a new storyline with a fresh setting each season. He also mentioned that every season will focus on two female lead roles.

The series stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslinand, Skyler Samuels, and Keke Palmer, with Nick Jonas and Ariana Grande set for recurring roles. It was recently revealed that Oliver Hudson will replace Joe Manganiello in the show, as the latter had to drop out due to scheduling.
