Paste Magazine - Andrew Crump
Burns conjures horror so vivid and tactile that at any time it feels like it might leap off of the screen and into our own imaginations or, worse, our own lives.

Los Angeles Times - Michael Ordona
In any genre, a distinct filmmaking voice and clever avoidance of cliches earns a closer look; perhaps even more so in the realm of sci-fi/horror. And no spoilers, but where Come True lands is extremely satisfying.

The Guardian - Phil Hoad
As for interpreting what it all means, leave that to Burns’s therapist. The flamboyance on display here, though, promises great things.

San Francisco Chronicle - Bob Strauss
Come True should be an exhilarating discovery for anyone it doesn’t put to sleep. But even if you do find yourself nodding off a little during this deliberately paced, low-humming, sci-fi horror movie, that means it’s working, too.

Slant Magazine - Unnamed
The film offers a glimpse of a world where screens are pores in the boundary between dreams and waking life.
